Our wonderful 'parcel opening' team!
The volunteer team turn up each week to sort your squares, hand warmers, tops, hats and cuddlies so that more and more vulnerable and deprived children are given a sense that they are valued and cared for!

Cath, how wonderful. I can only imagine how excited you must be! Have fun and please give ((hugs)) all around from me when you meet with our wonderful voluntreers. Can't wait for some pics. xo
So awesome that you brought so many goodies with you Cath. I hope you have a super visit!
It's good news today! The Bryanston PO is in it's final stages of completion; Wendy has been able to collect 9 mailbags of KAS post and Cath has arrived in SA complete with squares, hats, handwarmers and soft toys ready to meet and help the KAS opening team when they return soon. A good start to the new year :))
Thank you, Christine, for this fabulous news. You're right ... it is a good start to the New Year! xo
Some pics from yesterday's opening session!
Although we collected 9 bags of mail, the volunteers opened everything again and we are bang up to date. This was what was left at around mid-day, but it was all opened and processed!
Bags and bags of tops - we will need to get this distributed soon!
Joel opened this very bright top!
Kim working away!
Lindi and Mabel busy counting!
Beanies and hand-warmers are pouring in, which is great, but cannot be as a result of the request we made as they are arriving too soon, but they are most welcome!
What a relief to see parcels arriving and being 'found'.
I will also add how good it is to hear that you have arrived safely, Cath. I think you are in for a fun time with our KASfriends in SA. Can't wait to see you at play on opening day. :))
Ditto all that Bev said!
Cath, have a lovely time, I'm very envious!.... Can't wait to see the pictures of you with the SA ladies! x
Me too, I am awaiting pictures. I must say I love that bright green top Joel is holding up...wow, somebody has great skills to knit that. I'll happily stick to hats, handwarmers and squares but I love seeing how clever some of our contributors are.
What struck me about all those beanies and handwarmers arriving is how the women and men involved are clearly on the same wavelength as our South African front line volunteers...somehow they magically knew what was wanted. I think one can be very inspired when knitting or crocheting and here's proof!
Yay, awesome to see lots of lovely goodies arriving again! I LOVE that bright green top too, it is really going to brighten up the recipients day!
