LOVING the outfits on your dollies, Sandy....and your blanket is divine. Love the colours, love the design/patterns. Great hats, too! Thank you.  :))

Sandy, these are lovely dolls and cosy hats. The blanket is stunning and beautifully made!

That's good news Sandy! I am always happy too  to see that my parcel has arrived :) 

It is always a thrill to see that your creativity has arrived safely.

The pictures of your completed work would be seen and appreciated by more members if you could post/add them on the Photos section (shortcut to this is in the main header strip at the top of every square circle page).    Your wool-work is super!

I am concerned about sending my next package. I have 12 pairs of knitted handwarmers that I have made and would like to send, but it costs me about $60 to send a package. I looked on the June Squares list and did not see any of the previous packages that I have already sent listed. One was sent in May - 35 squares, hats and dolls, and the second in June - 35 squares and 4 dolls.  Please advise.  I am using the current packing slip.  Unfortunately, my post office will not track packages going to South Africa, so I have no way to tell if they are being received other than your squares list.

It takes weeks for a parcel to arrive in S Africa, then be handed to KAS  for opening etc.     A lot of time to be processed through the KAS barn, and then the squares list can be around a month behind so I wouldn't panic that your parcels have gone missing yet.      (take a look at the sorted in S Africa discussion pictures and you'll get an idea of the scale of this part).       Every parcel I have sent has always made it through the system.       I'm unsure about the best US mailing costs unfortunately.

Hi Susan, Karen is right about the parcel arriving . Also when you have sent your parcels by surface mail (which I suppose you did, please correct me if I am wrong) it can take months before they arrive in SA and afterwards the parcels have to be transported from the harbour or airport to Bryanston. My parcels never have gone missed, sometimes it takes a long time before they arrive. Please also bear in mind that the volunteers at the KAS barn is a small team and the squares list can be, like Karen said a month to 6 weeks behind. Thank you so much for what you do for the children and please keep the good spirit up. Kind regards, Anneke

Thanks to both Karen and Anneke for responding.  I still don't have a good grasp on what the parcels and the KAS staff goes through to do achieve these good deeds.  Keep up the good work, and I will continue to send packages your way.

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.
