Greeat Minds Think Alike (Even When Mine Isn't One of Them)

So, a lovely MommyBlogger friend of mine has been organizing a school supply donation drive for the last week or so among a group of American on-line pals (mostly Muslim but one or two of us others slip through and are made most welcome, teehee). I thought, what an awesome idea, so today during my weekly shopping, I picked up a number of items to drop off with her. Then, today, I see Nas' blog post about the Action Committee's drive for the same purpose. How awesome. I think I'll be sure to point this out for my friend so she doesn't spend lots of time trying to make connections to drop off stuff if Action Committee already has them... At any rate, I re-posting Nas' information on the Action Committee drive and hope you will all do something to help out those less fortunate than you are. If you're reading this, I know you can find a tiny bit extra to help...

The Action Committee is accepting collections of school supplies to distribute amongst under-privileged students in the Kingdom. The last day to receive any donations is next Tuesday the 19th. The committee is looking for the following items:
  • Backpacks & pencil cases
  • Sweatpants, sweatshirts, socks (for P.E.)
  • Pencils, pens, erasers, rulers
  • Notebooks, both English and Arabic
  • Geometry sets (for grades 5 & up)
  • Glue sticks, colored pencils & markers.

You can volunteer for this campaign in a couple of ways:

  1. Donations: either financially or any of the above mentioned items.
  2. Packing the items.
  3. Help us distribute the bags.

Also, if you’re a blogger, feel free to re-blog this post on your own blog (see I take direction well). Spread the word!
