Pack for a Purpose made my vacation more meaningful. This January was our second trip to Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort. We knew it participated in Pack for a Purpose, so when my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told her I had enough and instead asked for supplies to take on my trip for the rural Mayan children.
I had been collecting items since September when school items go on sale, so I had accummulated some supplies on the list such as notebooks and crayons. I also requested some toothbrushes to be donated from my dentist—he gave me 48 toothbrushes! I was delighted to give my items to the resort and to be able to assist the resort staff sorting donated items from the past year!
