POSTING A PARCEL?

Did you know that every parcel
Knit-a-square receives incurs a mandatory handling fee of $3.75 US, charged by the
South African Customs & Excise?
When mailing a package,
it is critical to write 
BONA FIDE GIFT FOR CHARITY, NO COMMERCIAL VALUE on your parcel and a declared value of $0 on your Customs Slip so KAS doesn't incur additional postage fees.
Are you sending from the U.S.? Please DO NOT insure your package.

DISTRIBUTIONS
Many times this month area creches and daycares have come to The Barn to collect blankets to distribute.  Unfortunately we do not get many photos of the children receiving their blankets.
Here is on such distribution to Dudu Little Angels DayCare.

Good morning madam.

 I'd like to take this opportunity to pass my sencere gratitude on what you did for me and the kids. On behalf of the parents and kids, we like to send our thousand thanks to you and your partners. The kids and parents are very happy, we are so grateful.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
