You have to be careful about what you send over-seas. When people over-seas
receive packages they are often charged very high fees to pick them up... I
remember hearing this from a missionary friend. I think it is great to share,
just make sure your gisft is really a blessing before you send it... find out
what it will cost the recipient.

<< Tracie,
I teach elementary level art in the US and I am always amazed that my
students DO still want the old broken crayons. Maybe it's because they
are the younger ones. The other day I was getting rid of all my really
short drawing pencils and I asked a fifth grade class if anyone wanted
them. Almost every kid raised his hand! They were practically fighting
over them. On the other hand, they are very sensitive kids and I think
that they would much rather the supplies go to some other kids who
really needed them. Maybe you could send me some pictures of that school
and my kids could put together a big box of used supplies to send to
them. Is this the school you teach at? Are you writing from Africa? I
know my kids would love to help out.
