On your next journey abroad, be sure to check out the website packforapurpose.org. By "donating" a little extra space in your luggage, you can bring needed items to local schools or hospitals. You can bring anything from 400 pencils or five deflated soccer balls with an inflation device to a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff and 500 bandages. When you arrive at your destination, just find the hotel or lodging facility that participates in the program, and drop off your goods. It's that simple!
