Thanks Estelle, that is a great news. I wouldn't either about the content since I have sent 4 parcels , two at the end of March from NY and two more from London in April. Also some hats and hand-warmers went together in one of Jude's parcel .
Hi Estelle. I read on the forum that the KAS camera is old. I have today posted a parcel of knitting. Included is my digital camera I no longer use. It has a camera to computer lead and also a Aa battery recharging unit. It takes rechargables or lithium batteries. I bought it New a couple of years ago to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain, and no longer need it as I now use my mobile phone. Cheers Sue
Hi Estelle, as a South African you understand the hardship the children face every day. Thank you for making squares to keep them warm.
If you are interested, the South African volunteer team based in Johannesburg meets every Thursday to open parcels and sort squares. They would appreciate your help if you have time. Here is the contact number: +27 82 655 5150
Greetings Estelle from the middle of Canada. You're a lot closer to the action than I am, that's for sure! Welcome to a worldwide network of loving happy people helping African HIV/Aids orphans and the poorest of the poor. Glad to have you with us! It's so heartening to know that in this global, often so impersonal world, we're actually making a difference, a REAL difference, in the lives of these children. Check out the Forum, in the header above, for the various discussion threads, and Photos for all the lovely photos of members' work and Groups where you can join groups from countries around the world, not to mention Patterns where you can get inspired with easy level patterns of things the children really need, the right sizes and shapes.
When you click on Discussions, the Featured Discussions grouping (in the Forum section above) shows the most important subjects at the moment, latest challenges, latest news etc. I also recommend the Café KAS Discussion section, which contains the Furry, Feathered and Fishy Companions and Share A Yarn threads. I am so much a Yarnaholic! Thanks again for helping the AIDS orphans in Africa!
"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.
