           -pack flat                  -tail neatly butterflied            -bundled in 5/10

 2. Inside the parcel:                                        3. Check Postage before mailing.

A TIP:

It is a good idea to check the Squares Lists every month to see when your parcels arrive.  The South African team doesn't always have time to send a reply ...although they do try !

A grateful child thanks You !

FIY:  Here is our RJSK Marilyn with a few of the "little people" she makes to send to the children :)

They are so cute. What lovely work Marilyn does.

What a champ you are, Marilyn!!!!! Adorable cuties.  :))

AMAZING quantity of work being done by the RJSK....especially consider its summer over there. Well done and a hearty pat on the back to you all.  :))

Note from Pam:

This week another 10 parcels had to be returned for re-assessment because people had placed values such as $50 on their parcels - South African Customs are desperate to raise funds and the bill for these ten parcels was assessed at $1300 ($105.50) - if these parcels do not come back with a reasonable assessment, they they will have to remain with SA Customs, who will most likely dispose of them, which would be a shame, and, a waste of some kind-hearted person's effort & postage.


Knit-a-Square is so strapped for cash, we simply cannot pay for parcels that have these estimated and inflated values!

Please tell as many people as possible the need for  the change of the parcel declaration to "BONA FIDE GIFT FOR CHARITY - NO COMMERCIAL" that needs to be on the front of all parcels, and, please please do not add a value of more than "1" on parcels - preferably "0"

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.
