But for this particular parcel it had to be a special kind of donation. Not handmade by donors since I wanted to raise at least a dozen pairs of long pants which the BFO Orphanage in Mount Hagen, PNG needed the most. And in such a short notice I was able to collect 18 new pairs of long pants between the sizes of 3 to 14.
I did'nt think handcarrying these items with the dresses and shorts my sister and I are planning to handcarry with us is a good idea as am not familiar with the customs regulations in PNG so I decided to post it yesterday. Eighteen new pairs of long pants in three colors and in different sizes. I removed the tags that normally comes with new pairs and replaced it with the Hope-4-Women International labels.
My heartfelt thanks to the group (I will just have to call them the 'fans' group or DAG groupies (:-)) of Dress A Girl Australia as they want to remain anonymous) for finding it in their hearts to come up with not only a dozen but 18 new pairs of long pants in such a very short time (I think in 3 days). Thank you so much.
To Dave of orphanlist, if you are reading this article, the parcel is now on its way to PNG. I hope with the sizes of the long pants it will find owners in your orphanage.
