Before 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 the communities you visit, like 400 pencils for a school, five deflated soccer balls with an inflation device for a youth sports program, or a stethoscope, blood-pressure cuff and 500 adhesive bandages for a local hospital. 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!
