Post #6 - 12 Suitcases of Donations Tallied Up!

When I realized that Kenyan customs might cause problems (mid-air on my flight between Dubai and Nairobi), I began gathering my lists of everything I packed and tallied up EVERYTHING I brought. Let me be clear, this is not everything I received. I still have my car full at home of things I couldn't fit, but plan to send as needed to Riziki. Opening all the bags was like Christmas and I felt like Santa, but the best feeling is seeing the children wearing and using the things I brought every day!

Here is what the children received from all of you...
