Our first Shipping Container

Location: Penticton, BC, Canada

On March 2nd our 40 foot shipping conatiner started it's long journey to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It will journey overland to Rwanda.

One of our sponsor families dropping off books on our first 'crate day.'

The container was delivered to the Wal Mart parking lot in Penticton. We had no idea how many hours of work it would take to collect, sort, package and load enough stuff to fill 2560 sq ft!!!!!

Children's author Marlene Armson donated 2200 of her books to the project.

Sorting our donations from Ironman Canada.

Montessory School teacher Sheena Lowe (my niece) and my daughter Beki collecting bottles to help pay the shipping costs of the container.

Safe birth kits donated by Summerland Middle School student, Madeleine Hamilton.

Piling the last of the items in the crate.

A crowd showed up for the last 'crate day.'

A crane is lifting the container on to a transport truck.

It was quite a job securing everything inside the crate.

Finally on it's way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
