Square Circle Forum

This challenge will be on-going for some time to come.  Therefore we are keeping it separate from the regular monthly challenges to avoid any confusion.

THE TOTAL AS OF 9th JULY HAS REACHED 134 !

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION FOR THE CHALLENGE :

 Ronda has requested that we reciprocate the help provided by a wonderful lady - Kareemah Thomas of Thomhuizen Freight CC in South Africa.  The Jigsaw consignment arrived, but got stuck in Customs who wanted to levee an unaffordable tax on the consignment despite it being designated for charity.  Eventually, with Kareemah's help, the cargo of vital squares was released - free of charge!

 Kareemah and Maajiida from Thomhuizen are advising KAS how to become 'importers' to ensure that all parcels clear Customs speedily.  However, part of the process being developed means we have to apply for a SARS Tax clearance certification.  Unfortunately, this will delay things for a few months, but eventually KAS will be able to provide a step-by-step guide for parcels being sent by sea freight.

KAREEMAH RUNS A CHARITY HERSELF.

It provides soccer coaching for disadvantaged  children near Crown Mines in the South of Johannesburg  who ages range from 2-16. In May she helped run a tournament for 60 teams over a weekend!  When asked what we could do in return for all the help she has given KAS, Kareemah said she would love to have 600 red & white beanies. The logo she showed Ronda is a genuine scarlet/tomato red! 

 Ronda suggests that members can have fun with the hats as long as they are a mixture of red & white.  Please would you mark them "Hat's for Kareemah" to ensure they are separated out. Here are some examples sent by KasFolk :

OOPS! Sorry Pam, I sent 2 hats with my parcel last week, but didn't specify that they were for Kareemah. :(

Don't worry Bev, Ronda is on the look-out for red & white hats to set aside for Kareemah!

Hi Pam do you still need red and white hats or has this challenge finished

cheers

Mandi

Hi Mandy, yes the challenge has finished, but that doesn't mean you cannot send any more red & white hats!  Many football & sports teams have these colours, so the hats are highly prized.  We are hoping to be able to share more info about the distribution - when it finally takes place!  We have agreed with Kareemah to set just 200 aside, and the rest will be distributed in various ways!
