Do something to help when you visit:
Bring school supplies in your suitcase (you'll need room for things you take back anyway!) and take them to a local primary school. School supplies are lacking here and this is a fun way to help. Or email us, we will make sure your donations go to school. Thank you.
Are you in the medical field?
Princess Margaret Hospital needs all of those usable things thrown away in American medical settings. Save supplies and bring them down. You'll have room to take back our delicious local coffee! Email us, we will make sure your donations go to the right place.
