    That is awesome... when we return I will pack some stuff.
    I have two totes full of school supplies and etc... (use coupons and rarely pay for them)
    Do make a few backpacks for the kids down the street.... (parents spend money else where)

    I go to the Dollar Tree with manufactor coupons and get as much as possible of supplies..
    Always get extra that goes to the homeless shelter... (they need to bathe too)
    Also I tend to save all my samples from cruises, hotels and etc... get way to get them for free and give them to
    somebody who use them.

    I contacted Imeldahof directly. Here is the response I received from the director:

    How you know about our children's Home???
    We appreciate your donations and want to thank you in advance.
    You can bring some schoolsupplies as: pen, pencils, notebook, white-out, coloring pencils,stabilo markers.

    Wishing you well

    I used the "Contact us" form on their website.

    Target has most of these items for $.97 right now. I got a bunch of Crayola colored pencils & markers for that great price! Notebooks are on sale - 2 subjects were 4 for $3. Hoping to spread the stuff out in our carry ons so I don't have to worry about the weight!

    Also coupons for those items too. And if you use Target coupons and spend $25 they give you back $5.00 make sure they subtotal first then use your $5.00 first then the others..
    Just left there and got two different orders... dropping some off at the local family shelter. (this way I know it goes to somebody who really needs it)
    Already started my Aruba tote too. The grendkids here do not need a THING !!!! they got enough to get them through college..
