06/12/11 That Luggage doesn't look quite full enough!

New volunteers with room in your luggage, you are welcome to bring along items for donation, which we can use during our time spent with kids in the community.

The Cap Ternay base has various partnerships in the community, including a children’s home near our base. We hold special events for the children such as snorkeling at nearby Port Launay Marine Park and carnivals with face painting and games at their home. We organize fundraisers to purchase necessities as well as special outings that would not otherwise be possible.

Sometimes it is difficult to get items in the Seychelles which are readily available in other countries. So if you are interested in bringing donations with you, we could use items listed below!

- Bubbles and bubble blowing toys (the little ones go crazy for them!)

- Face paints

- Balls, Frisbees

- Arts and craft supplies:

Crayons and colored pencils

Colored paper, glitter, beads

Embroidery thread for making friendship bracelets

- New or hand-me-down kids clothes (there are girls and boys ages 0 – 17 so all sizes will fit now or be grown into quickly.)

Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, sun dresses

Bathers and rashies (for our snorkel sessions with the kids!)

Flip flops and sneakers

- Backpacks

- Kids books, educational toys in French or English

Make sure to prioritize all gear required for the expedition before bringing along any of these extras J Thank you!
