The enthusiasm and the great efforts made this project a wonderful success with patience and loads of cooperation. So many have shared in the joy and anticipation of these Bikes, PCs and  Laptop being shipped to Africa to find a new home and new purpose. Perhaps such a sense of deep satisfaication and achievement can be best shown in the smiles of all the friends,  families and of the individuals who shared in this group effort.

The very positive public response to this project says volumes for what is possible to increase the good for others in the world,  an espeically good fortune for those in South Africa.

Even on days of cold weather conditions,  working around snow storms many shared in all that is right about making a difference despite the winter and spring weather conditions! Collecting, organizing and packing these goods also gave opportunties for all involved to dream big and imagine what profound joys and ease of life will be created with such good efforts!
