Just wanted to let you know about the tally dropped off to Mongolia. Here's the route our boxes take:
Ottawa - New York - Flagstaff - Mongolia
Shipped in these boxes were (drrrrrrrrrrumroll please):
111 pairs of mittens
That, combined with 300 items shipped to Afghanistan and the Innu, gets us to 600. That's so crazy, when we were targetting 100.
I loved packing the boxes - I remembered where we had collected many of the items and the knitters who gave them to us. Each item is so different and so perfect, and I love the fact that we had such a variety of sizes, that we could warm entire families with our cozy stuff.
We've got 1 more shipment to go - with the deadline of March 31st. So if you're out there, go to town, and we'll make sure your stuff gets to Mongolia!
Thanks once again,
Anita and Amy
