Last month, my son, husband and I (plus my parents) spent two weeks in South Africa. In the past, I have made a point of packing an extra bag of school supplies, books, art supplies, puzzles, etc… (previously on trips to South Africa and Zambia).
Prior to leaving on holiday, I went online in search of a community or organization in need of school supplies or other items. It was then I discovered Pack for a Purpose. I searched the website, in hopes of finding a location along the route of our travels within the country. Since we were staying in Johannesburg for a few days and exploring surrounding areas (including Soweto) we made plans to visit and deliver the school supplies to a drop off site in Soweto – Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers.
We travel often enough, so you can be sure we will check the Pack for a Purpose site and have an extra bag of needed supplies packed and ready for our next trip!
