HI Laurie, we may start sending parcels, though you might wish to wait for the US Christmas rush to be over :-)  Please use the same Bryanston address.

On the 15th we had news from Wendy:  Exciting news - attached is a photo of the new Bryanston Post Office! They hope to be able to move in on 21 December and then, with a bit of luck, things may return to some form of normality.

Here's the new PO.   [ Larger photo here     http://forum.knit-a-square.com/photo/good-news?context=latest ]

Do we have a final word on when and where to mail?
Comment by Kristie Diener on December 7, 2015 at 12:33pm

Thank you so much for the information.  Yes, I will switch my donation over.

Hi Kristie, thank you for your donation.  It is important for Knit-a-Square to have donors giving monthly.  Ronda is on a very tight budget and knowing money will be arriving on a regular basis is a relief.

Would it be possible for you to change your donation so it goes directly to South Africa ?  You need to cancel the payment information you have now then click on the "Donate Directly to Knit-a-Square South Africa" subscribe button [right side of this page] and set up new payments.Thanks again for supporting Knit-a-Square with your squares and your donation.

Hi Kristie, I'll check with Ronda for you, but suspect you may have been subscribing to KasCare - the money still goes to Knit-a-Square eventually. We have now removed the KasCare donate buttons from the Forum Main page and the current subscribe/donate buttons are linked directly to the PayPal South Africa account. Historically, KasCare used to collect all donations, because when Ronda first started she didn't have the capacity to set-up a PayPal account. About 18 months ago we set up a PP account directly to South Africa and have been trying to get members to switch. You would have received an automatic computer receipt for your donations, but where possible Ronda also tries to send a personal thank you. Many thanks for all the support - always much appreciated! KasCare is now becoming an umbrella organisation called Create Global Care, and, will focus on fund raising from corporates etc.,

Hello!  I have been making a monthly donation to KAS via PayPal for awhile.  I see where it is charged to my credit card, however I have never heard anything from KAS.  Is there a way to verify that they do get it? 

I noticed on the web page that the postal strike is over!! Yea!!

Everyone in the US have a very Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for all you do for KAS and changing the lives of so many children.

Welcome to the USA, Lina. So glad you will continue with KAS from this side of the ocean. There are KASers in the Princeton area and hopefully they will see your post. You can also post it on the Facebook page. I am just outside Philadelphia so not so far from you!

Thank you for posting Pam. I know this confusion is not helpful on any front.  Let us pray that it will pass soon and all packages are accounted for.
