Tour Company

Sunsation Tours


Sunsation Tours started their literacy project Tools for Schools after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. In particular, school libraries, never lavishly stocked, had been stripped clean. There is a woeful lack of colourful, fun, motivating books for children from ages 5 through 12 years old. 

Please bring an inviting book or two whether new or used, just in good condition. Books can be left at any hotel you are staying at. Just contact Sunsation Tours at and one of our representatives will collect them.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of October 14, 2018

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
