On your next journey abroad, be sure to check out the website packforapurpose.org, which encourages international travelers to save a little extra space in their luggage to bring along donation items for schools and hospitals. Shipping these goods halfway around the world can be expensive, so tossing things like packages of pencils or Band-Aids, deflated sports balls, etc. into your checked luggage can do a lot of good. When you arrive at your destination, just find the local hotel or lodging facility that participates in the program and drop off your goods. It's that simple!
