Thanks Linda! 

My second parcel arrived. I send them from London in July. 

Cheers. ~ diana

Yes ladies, the parcels do get there....eventually :-)

Bravo to the Czechs and Slovaks!  Huge numbers coming in from relatively small countries.  Also, congratulations to the South Africans.

Whoop whoop, 3 parcels from July have arrive, just missing one now.it is such a relief when your name appears on the list.:-))

Good news Sharon !  The remaining parcel will show up....eventually :-)

The November Squares List is available. Sadly this is the lowest total so far this year.  After a fabulous July with 27,513 squares, the postal situation meant very few parcels were received in November.  After much sleuthing Ronda finally tracked down the parcels. They had been redirected to another post office but no one thought to contact her !  With more parcels to open, December’s numbers should be almost back to normal.

We are able to start sending our parcels !  Please continue to use the usual address at Bryanston, as the parcels are being re-routed to Bryanston West Post Office.

Thanks for the update Linda.   I expected a drop since we were told not to post for a while. I rather expect a parcel tsunami will begin arriving soon as everyone finds out they can mail off packages again. :)

Thank you Linda. So how many squares is the total recorded for 2015?

Hi Maudie,

Even with the Post Office woes, 207,990 squares were received in 2015.  That's 5,924 warm children. 

Fantastic! THANK YOU LINDA FOR KEEPING THE FLOW.
