Does anyone have a playpen they don't need and that I could take off their hands for them?

I have had many years of service from this very sturdy cabinet but it's now surplus to my needs. The only damage was inflicted many years ago by my then crazy cat who scratched the top - easily sanded.

Vintage Glam


Hi Friends, 
Vintage Glam is my way (Jackki) of raising funds to help Fijian village children, I volunteer my time there and I'm a nonprofit fundraiser.

I started raising money a year ago to help post educational books over 
to villages, as the postage is $278.00 for 20 kg which is very expensive & 20kg of books is not very many books with the weight in them, never the less, I still send or take books over. Raising the money helps with 
postage only & I have been fortunate enough to have books donated to me. 

I then started to buy thongs with the funds to also send or take, as all the children are in school with out shoes. I would like to ask if anyone has or knows of friends getting rid of any books or can donate a 
pair of new (cheap, usually $1 or $2 I have found) thongs, that would be very much appreciated. 

It brings so much joy to these children to own a book or a pair of thongs or both. 

PS the children in grades 5 & 6 wear adult women's sizes such as 7 8 9 10... 

Pictures = shoes & books I sent. 
Last photo = happy kids with a balloon & lolly pop I gave them, we ran out Of Thongs :(

Thank you so much in advance.

Regards Jackki.
