Note from Pam:
This week another 10 parcels had to be returned for re-assessment because people had placed values such as $50 on their parcels - South African Customs are desperate to raise funds and the bill for these ten parcels was assessed at $1300 ($105.50) - if these parcels do not come back with a reasonable assessment, they they will have to remain with SA Customs, who will most likely dispose of them, which would be a shame, and, a waste of some kind-hearted person's effort & postage.
Knit-a-Square is so strapped for cash, we simply cannot pay for parcels that have these estimated and inflated values!
Please tell as many people as possible the need for the change of the parcel declaration to "BONA FIDE GIFT FOR CHARITY - NO COMMERCIAL" that needs to be on the front of all parcels, and, please please do not add a value of more than "I" on parcels - preferably "0"
Thanks Diane. I'll add your name to the Pay The Rent discussion so Anne can include your name on the growing list of people who are helping Knit-a-Square.
Thanks for joining the MANDELA MAMAs, Mary Anne. your contribution will get us well on the way to day #3.
I can only imagine how busy your life must be with all the responsibilities you have taken on. We all miss you hugely, but it is sometimes necessary just to step back and "do what you have to do" at certain times in our lives.
Please know that we never forget that you are still vey much a part of our "family" and that we keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
I'm on board for the Mandela Mamas! I haven't been able to do as much, since buying my house....wow, houses sure do take a lot more $ than you plan for. But I've donated $25 to help with the rent and I will do more as I am able!
I know it must seem like I've dropped off the face of the earth! Between my Mom bringing Dad back from the nursing home and some health issues on her end....oh and keeping up with two houses and two yards....well, you get the picture. But I'm still around and I crochet whenever I get a moment! Think about you ALL, all the time and send you my love and prayers that all my dear KAS friends are well!

CELEBRATE MANDELA DAY WITH US BY JOINING OUR TEAM
THE “MANDELA MAMAS”
We talk about giving “67 minutes for Mandela” every July 18. Could we make it a donation to Pay the Rent this year instead?
Looking at the July, August and September Pay the Rent calendars we see more green (unpaid days) than pink (paid for days). Ronda really needs our help over the next few months.
I know many of us are a bit short of cash right now, but if you are able to donate $10USD (or more or even less), please sign up and become a MANDELA MAMA

Hi, Jenni, and welcome to KAS and the US group!
Yes, there is snow in and around Johannesburg, especially in the mountains. Most people believe South Africa is hot all the time but this is a false assumption. It is often freezing in their winters which occur during June, July, August and September so many distributions of blankets, hats, handwarmers and scarves take place during those months. Thanks for joining in!
I recently joined KAS and just joined this group forum ~ I appreciate and am humbled to have the opportunity to knit for the children. The Med-Lemon video about the scarves was fantastic - teaching women to knit and become involved. Did I read that there is snow in an area of South Africa? I guess I didn't think that it would snow there. Thank you all for all that you do!
