At Pack for a Purpose our favorite math is addition and multiplication. We are always thrilled when the number of supplies multiplies every year and we add more and more Pack for a Purpose travelers who choose to make a Big Impact.
2018 was a very positive year for the community projects that benefit from the supplies taken by Pack for a Purpose travelers, as illustrated in this chart below.
There were increases in both the second and third trimester, with the weight of the supplies received increasing by slightly over 18.7% for those trimesters from 2017. The annual increase of supplies from 2017 to 2018 was nearly 8% for a total of 26,343.75 kilos (57,956.25 lbs).
We hope that 2019 will be another positive year for Pack for a Purpose and we will add many more travelers who choose to make the trip they take go farther than the miles they travel. When this happens, the pounds and kilos of supplies delivered for community projects around the world will multiply and so will the benefit those supplies provide.
