"Back-to-school shopping requires little more than a trip to the store for most American families. But even basic school supplies like pencils, notebooks and erasers are hard to come by - and nearly impossible to afford - for many families living in poverty around the world."
"Many families in the developing world do not have access to everyday health supplies like pain reliever, sunscreen, and antibiotic ointment. Through C.U.R.E. Kits for Kids, you can help provide these essential items to families and children, just like yours or those you know, in less fortunate countries throughout the world."

After having read Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer, I've picked up a new travelogue by Rita Golden Gelman: Tales of a Female Nomad. In it, the author describes her pared-down existence. I love the following quote. It challenges and delights me:
"I pack everything I own: two pairs of pants, one skirt, four T-shirts. A sweater. Underwear. A bathing suit. Toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, sunblock, insect repellent, sneakers, and four plastic bags. I put in my Spanish dictionary, the Lonely Planet guide to Guatemala, a novel to read and trade, a Swiss Army knife, and a sleeping bag. And finally, I pack two empty spiral notebooks, some ballpoint pens, and the smallest secondhand manual typewriter I can find. I've given everything else away."
Then she adds, "A friend gives me a threadbare (as requested) face towel that can fit in a small space and wash and dry easily."
