I just packed a box of ballpoints I do not use. I am sending them to help kids in Africa with their education. So can you.
There is a charity called Pens for Kids. They accept new and used pens in good, working condition. They take these pens and give them to kids in Africa to assist them in furthering their education. You can either send the pens to PFK’s U.S. branch and then they will ship them to Africa, or you can ship the pens directly to their branch in Africa. If you don’t have any pens to donate, you can send them a monetary donation, which helps them pay shipping costs for the pens going to Africa.
I think education is extremely important and rather than letting those crappy pens from meetings and conventions sit in a drawer, I’m helping kids in Africa increase their knowledge. Go to www.pensforkids.com.
