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.

"From Estelle on November 29...getting ready for a Christmas distribution.
We didn’t meet yesterday for our fortnightly get together sorting post and bundling squares to make blankets for KNIT- A- SQUARE.
 
This week has been set aside to gather all the Christmas blankets still out there.
 
We could not have done this without all our fabulous contributors, the ladies at the barn collecting Christmas squares and passing them on to us, Elaine from our group always ready to crochet a heart, a star, a red or green square or whatever we needed to make our blankets special for the children and of course Ronda who never says NO to any request we have.
 
Everyone has gone the extra mile this year to make this a very special Christmas distribution. Thank you

"Here is Ronda's report from November 28...

We had some post today which was special … and Mateo joined us to help out for the morning.
Busy Mateo …


Always good to have someone young in the barn who can climb up the ladder without getting vertigo; fold and carry piles of blankets; and stretch tall or bend low without having a head rush and having to hold onto the furniture to stop from falling over !
 
All blankets must face the same way for Viv … here she is teaching Mateo how to get it right.Blankets photographed this morning… waiting for Viv to place tidily on the shelves !

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.
