Yes good idea about checking with PayPal regularly, to make sure the payments are going through.

Good Morning Aussie members.

Just a friendly reminder for those who are able to donate to our appeal for our dear Ronda and the children of South Africa that she distributes our goodies to....every $ counts. In this link you will find many ways you can donate...a one off, a monthly, by Paypal, credit card or I am happy to accept cheques that I can then bank and paypal to Ronda on your behalf (of which you would receive a message from me when I receive your cheque and an email from Ronda when I process the Paypal payment. You can let me know on this group page and I can private message you my postal address.

Once again the link to the appeal is:

Thank you Everyone.  :))

Hi Aprile.

This was a comment made by Kathy in the UK re having issues with a paypal payment, thought this might have applied to your issue with paypal, too.

Hi Louise and Sharon
A thought I've had - is it worth an email say perhaps twice a year to remind those who pay a monthly donation via PayPal to ensure they keep their details up to date when their card attached to the account expires and a new one is issued? I remember to do this when I have a new debit card issued, but maybe that's because I use PayPal quite often. If a member has set up a PayPal account simply for KAS donations they may not realise? Just a thought! xx

You're welcome Aprile.  :)) I'm not really savvy with credit cards and online/computer stuff, so prefer paypal to do it for

Hi again Bev. Oh yes, I see what you mean: this is possible with a credit or debit card instead of using a PayPal account if you want to make one-off donations, but you have to have a PayPal account if you want to donate for the rent each month automatically. That's what they messed up for me, so I think I'll just have to organise myself to send a donation for rent from my debit card every month manually rather than automatically. Thanks for your help Bev!

I haven't tried it, as I don't have a credit card, but if you click on the 'donate' button on the right hand side of this page, it takes you to paypal and below the 'log in' to p/pal it says 'if you don't have a paypal a/c you can use these credit cards and then lists them.

Comment by Aprile on March 7, 2017 at 11:09pm
Um... you mean instead of PayPal, really?
Comment by Bev Jeffery on March 7, 2017 at 10:57pm

Hi Aprile. No worries.  :)) 

They do have credit card, I think, if that's suitable for you.  :))

Comment by Aprile on March 7, 2017 at 10:51pm
Hi Bev. I can PayPal. I just don't like it, because I recently found a security issue. And because they had stopped the regular KAS payments, but I only found out accidentally. However I'll assume it was a one-off.... I would've paid by eftpost if that was still available... thanks for the offer of accepting cheques Bev, but it's ok, I'll go back to PayPal..... ta anyway!

Hi Aprile.

K-A-Square no longer has an Australian a/c to deposit into. Helen, one of our US mods accepts American cheques that she then banks and then paypals to Ronda in South Africa, as does Louise in the UK. I am happy to do this for anyone in Oz who is unable to paypal. If anyone would like to donate in this way, you can pm me and I will send you my address. When it is sent to Ronda, I can then send you her paypal receipt of your donation.

The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!


Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with. You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!
