Here’s a worthwhile cause you can attach yourself to with good conscience. We are often hesitant to purge our prized possessions, thinking that one day…, what if…, and what a waste in the land fills….
A friend of mine Sean Jamieson, an investment planner by day, and Boy Scout leader by night/weekends, is collecting School Supplies for school kids in Grahamstown, South Africa. Their troupe, Burnaby 4th Southwest, will be sending a container load to South Africa to give children the tools to learn in school.
Consider donating your office supplies for a good cause. Paper, pens, pencils, rulers, scissors, staplers, hole punches, chalk, and more are needed. If you are a corporation who has just re-branded or moved and have old letterhead, and old logo office supplies, what a worthwhile cause to recycle your paper for.
Have a look at the Boy Scout Troup and their collection to date, in this picture.
You can contact Sean to make arrangements for your donation, by calling 604.941.4697.
