  •  "Please send us underwear rather than shoes" (1+ / 0-)

    I do some volunteer work that our city has helping a community in Kenya. One of the side projects is donating money and clothing to pay for school and clothe the students. Our group found out after the first year of doing this that the Kenyan people needed underwear much more than they needed shoes. This was sort of a metaphor for both our cultural differences and the levels of poverty between America and Kenya.
