However, this evening, TC and I were sorting and storing all the items that Kwaj folks want to share with people in the outer islands - clothes, shoes, books, school supplies, toys, toiletries, etc. THERE WAS A LOT OF STUFF. We filled up the V-Berth and the starboard ama. It is awesome. By the end of the night, I wasn't feeling tired, but excited. I can't wait to see the looks on people's faces when they get their gifts.
|This is the starboard ama. It's a full size berth and it's packed with donations. There's also more on the ground (not visible in this picture).|
|This is the passageway from the starboard ama to the main ama. Filled with clothes!|
|TC laughing as we sort through things in the main ama.|
|We got five boxes of books from Bess' uncle. Yay for reading!|
|This is the V-Berth. Underneath all of this stuff is a double bed. We're going to be able to give whole islands new wardrobes.|
I can't wait to return and post pictures of the people who benefit from the generosity of the wonderful people of Kwajalein.
