AT THE BEACH

12403973274?profile=RESIZE_400xPut on some sandals, sip a frosty drink, watch the waves and play in the sand. This month we have spent our time At The Beach enjoying the music of the Beatles, Beach Boys, Christopher Cross, Rod Stewart and more.  Our contributors have shared so many fun squares and blankets in this discussion. 

See all the BLUE and feel the breezes while you visit these pages.

THE BARN

So many colorful and fun items have been arriving in  South Africa.  These wonderful squares and cute toys have arrived, and our volunteers in two locations have enjoyed sorting them and getting them ready for distributions.

Packing Slip and Mailing Label

https://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/packing-slip-and-mailing-label

The South African volunteers appreciate the Packing Inventory Slip that many people include in their parcels.  It makes the job of recording each item much easier.

Before filling in the Packing Slip, please read the PACKAGING YOUR SQUARES discussion.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Open the appropriate file and fill in the
information in the PDF or print a copy and write by hand.

KAS-Packing-Slip.pdf

KAS-Packing-Slip_Large-print.pdf

 

One form is needed for each parcel.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Information needed :

1. Fill in the "This package contains" section describing the quantity you are sending in the parcel.

2. Fill in your contact details in the "Contributor Details" section. Fill in the Name, Organisation (if applicable) and Country fields. Providing your email address is optional.

3. Cut along the line marked with the scissors.

4. Add the top part of the form to the inside of your package before you seal it. Tape your parcel well.

5. Firmly tape the bottom part of the form with the address to the outside front of your package. If the label is the wrong size for your package, hand-write the address and declaration (BONA FIDE GIFT FOR CHARITY, NO COMMERCIAL VALUE) instead.

6. Fill in the customs declaration, listing $0 or $1 as the value. Anything more incurs duties.*

7. Do NOT register your parcel or use a tracking number. This causes endless problems for the team in South Africa.

8. Knit-a-square is now paying a fee on each international parcel received in South Africa. If possible, please purchase a Pay the Customs Fee in the KasShop to help with the added fee.

9. Now you are all set to send your parcel!

10. To find out if your squares have arrived, check the Square Lists.

Do not be concerned if it seems to take 3 or 4 months for your name to appear. It takes several weeks for surface mail to arrive, then the time to travel to the local post office, be unpacked and recorded by KAS volunteers.

  • Thanks for another ripper addition, Amy! Love it!!!

    Wow So many squares and goodies received in February.

    Hubby looked at the bags and bags of squares, toys and yarn stacked on his side of our bedroom and said 'when are you going to get rid of some of this stuff?'. I said 'I'll try and get a parcel off this week'. He said 'you think ONE parcel is going to fix it?'....oops....hahaha.

  • Thank you Amy for your hard work, producing another great edition of Snippets.
