Update to my Postcard Campaign for the kids at Project DCR

A few days ago I came up with an idea to have people travelling to the Galapagos drop off a postcard at Post Office Bay for former street kids in a school here that my friends at Project DCR run.

The first good Samaritan sent me an email the same day.. Thanks Sonia for your generosity and fun-loving nature!

Hola!
I’d be happy to send you a postcard and if there is one there for you I will definitely make the effort to drop it in. I especially think postcards to the kids is a great idea – good on you.
I am in the process of putting together school supplies (early phonics book which are great for learning English, a few nice picture books, excercise books for writing, etc). I like to put together a bunch of books and stationary whenever I visit a developing country and then find somewhere when I arrive that is in need (an orphanage in Bali, a school in Thailand etc). You have saved me the trouble with your great posts about Project DCR. I will also try to find some relevant resources for the teachers now that I am aware they would apreciate that too. Thanks for making me aware and I look forward to shouting you a beer or at least having you pour me one if on duty. We arrive early December so just let me know where to take things for the project.
Cheers
Sonia
