more of the squiggle.
Well we have done 4 Boxes but I know that we have done more than that because stevenwag has spoken to ShelterBox headquarters and explained to Tiffany why there is an extra penny in the donation. stevwag is also a ShelterBox ambassador!!
So, i feel it is important to say that the community does not need to tell me what they are donating. But just pleeeeese donate what you can, even small amounts donated will add up and help save children from the elements.
