  •  pencils (4.00)
    My husband sent a care package to a friend of his recently who was very appreciative of the goodies, but he said the one thing that he needs the most in Iraq are pens and pencils.

    Apparently he spends a significant part of his day handing out pencils to children - the schools have re-opened but the kids don't have supplies.

      was with a group of teachers visiting schools in Zimbabwe. They were told to bring small gifts for the children. I ordered a gross of fancy pencils from a supply house and some stickers.

      The children in the loved the pencils. They were lucky to have a tiny stub to write with. Just to have a pencil with an eraser was a luxury.

      I can't explain myself...because I'm not myself, you see. - Alice
