This last one is for everyone, even bi-peds.
I had planned to leave this series of posts at four until I read an article from an in-flight magazine on the way to Melbourne this weekend.
The article made an impact on me so I'm going to shamelessly paraphrase it here:
Next time you fly somewhere, you'll likely leave a little spare room in your suitcase for souvenirs or anything else you might pick up along the way.
You can put that extra room to very good use thanks to an organization called PackForAPurpose.org.
If you're travelling to a developing community, consider packing school supplies for children such as crayons, pencils, pens and board games. Some areas may even benefit from basic over-the-counter medicines and analgesics.
PackForAPurpose.org has country-by-country lists of supplies needed in each region as well as lists of hotels, airlines, etc who participate in the program as drop-off locations. It's easy, convenient and makes a world of difference.
Before you fly again, check out PackForAPurpose.org!
