"Thanks Kathy- that would mean that I could get a bigger size if I am putting in only knitting! The kids in my class will get the job of packing them all up this week!!!"

"Good Morning Shirley I use the plastic mailerbags, as they are flexible it is amazing how much you can squash in! I use the 18" by 12" but because I add books etc: this makes them heavier. I get mine from Wilkinsons as they come in…"

"That's great thanks. I will buy plastic bags as we had a fundraiser and can cover costs. That sounds really large-that size would house about 2kg?? Obviously we will check weight. I just want to make sure that I buy the right size bags!"

"Shirley, do not use boxes or anything cardboard for packaging, these will incur a tax to be paid in South Africa. Black bin bags measuring a total of 90cms (length+width+depth), well-securedn will suffice. Or you could buy plastic mailing bags from…"

I think I sent a message to all members by mistake. I just wanted to ask what kind of box/envelope/package I should get to send 2kg of knitting. I have over 20kg to post!See More

Hi Shirley, welcome to the forum !  We are so pleased you have joined our world-wide family of knitters and crocheters.  We are dedicated to keeping the children in South Africa warm. 

How lovely to have the school children and their families involved in KAS.  That is a great photo !  It will be exciting for the children to send off the parcels.  It will also be exciting for the volunteers to receive the parcels.

Maybe some of the items will show up in the e-zine.

You might want to check with the UK group about posting to South Africa.  I think the cheapest parcel size is 2 kg.  Anything larger than that is terribly expensive.

Hi delighted to be a member! In the next few weeks I will be posting a large amount of squares, hats and jumpers that have been knitted by my school community. I wanted to ask about the jumpers. Are they needed or are they best sent elsewhere?

Greetings Shirley from across the Pond in the middle of Canada. :) Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African Aids orphans. Glad to have you with us.  It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world.

The Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section) show the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Anyone Want to Chat Discussion section, which contains the Our Furry Companions and Yarnaholics threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic!  You joined us just in time to contribute some warm squares, hats and garments for the children, as their winter is approaching as ours leaves.  Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!
