india children project

i just got an e-mail from a friend of mine who is a school teacher in the seattle area. her classroom is working on a project to collect items to send to school children in india. here is the project description:

Mrs. Mann’s Project for School Children in India

Mrs. Mann traveled to India over the summer and spent time in the Amar Jyoti Elementary School in Bhadrajun, India. We are learning about India and as a project for our class, we are collecting items to send to the school children. We are collecting new school supplies like: pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or markers, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, and small books. As a treat, we are also sending: hard candy and lollipops, mints, and gum. We would also like to collect necessities for cold weather like: socks, mittens, and caps. If a family wishes to donate money, we will have a container in the classroom that students and/or families can donate money by placing it inside. We would then mark that money to be used to buy sweaters and school uniforms in India, since those items would be much cheaper to purchase there. Dates of the fundraiser are from November 12th, 2008 to November 26th, 2008.
if you would like to help, please send me an e-mail and i'll give you more details on where to send money or items. if you're local to my area and would like to help, you can drop off items or checks at my house by november 23 and we'll ship everything all at once to Mrs. Mann.

Hope the project is going well!!! We've been gathering items for a few projects ourselves. Can be a bit daunting at times, but worth the effort! Have a great weekend :)
