Backpacks for Belize

A good friend of mines mother is participating in an expedition to provide medical care and basic supplies to the Holy Cross Anglican School in San Pedro, Belize. The group she works with has a long standing relationship with the school and this year the plan is to provide backpacks and school supplies to children in need.

- If you have a used (or new) backpack or book bag in good condition that you don't use, consider donating to this cause.

- If you can "load" the bag that is also much appreciated - they are specifically looking for - colouring books, paper, tape, pens, pencils, chalk and erasers, stickers, sharpeners and hand sanitizer (though any school type supplies i'm sure would be much appreciated).

If you have a bag to donate you can either send it to the address below or if you live in the Raleigh-Durham area Alyssa will pick them up (just drop me a note and i'll put you in touch). I'll personally be sending a few bags along - every conference I go to I seem to get a bag that sits unused, this is a great way for them to be used by those in need!
