Every now and then, people ask me what I need or would like in a package. I never know how to answer this question because I feel like a major dufusface saying, “send me food to stuff my face!”
Sending packages is costly and I really don’t want people to feel obligated to send me anything, but I understand that sending packages is for people to contribute to this experience and support me. I respect that.
I’ve listed a few things that make good package stuffers, but lately I thought of a few things that I wish I had for school and other projects, so I decided to throw them up on the bloggo. If you are one of the people that want to send me a package, you are saint. Also, maybe this list will be helpful. If you don’t want to send me a package, it is OK. I will still be your friend.
Things for school:
- Small pieces of candy (I use this as positive reinforcement for English speaking)
- Construction paper
- Note cards
- Balloons, those crazy bracelets that make shapes
Things for me, if you feel it necessary:
- Hand sanitizer
- Healthy snacks (this girl has an ultra to run next year!)
- Pictures of home
- Batteries (AA/AAA)
Please don’t hate me if this post seems vain. Then again, what are blogs for? Also! If there is anything anyone wants from Lesotho, please let me know. Remember I have a limited budget but I am happy to send African things. I can have kids draw pictures, my students write you poems or figure something else out.
OK. Enough. Hope it is a good week!
