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.

"Hello Rhonda, Estelle   I have just had a large bag of blankets returned to me  the usual Bryanston PO address has been crossed out.  Do you now have a different PO address. It appears my parcel reached SA before being returned to Australia.  I sent another parcel of 17 blanket's yesterday before I was aware of this.  Kind regards Sue Leverton "
