A heartfelt thanks for donations

A giant thanks to everyone who brought contributions to help the tsunami survivors in Thailand! In Thai they say, Kop Kun Ma Kaa, thank you very much.

Thanks to Knitting Jenny, who donated a lot of colored pencils, coloring books, watercoloring books, sharpeners (awesome!), work gloves, paintbrushes, and stickers!

Thanks to Fairfax Jenny, who donated 500 brand new pens for teachers and students!

Thanks to Grace, who donated stickers, crayons, colored pencils and small bells for crafts!

Thanks to my friend Alissa in Boston (not even a knitter), who sent a box from Staples of colored pencils and watercolor sets!

Thanks to Monica, in Beverly Hills, who donated a huge boxful of stickers, creative paper and journals from her scrapbooking store!

Thanks to Susan for donating $20, $5 of which went to buy a secondhand suitcase to get donations to Thailand!

Thanks to Penguin books, who is donating a couple of copies of Yvon Chouinard's new book Let My People Go Surfing for NGOs in Phang-Nga province!

I'll also be taking some paintbrushes from the Tony Danza school painting project, and peanut butter for the volunteers (it's really expensive there, and hard to find).

I appreciate your "jai dee" — your warm hearts — as you give to kids who don't have a lot.
(Any items that are too heavy for my suitcase will be donated to Ninth Street Elementary school in downtown LA....I'm limited to 50lbs)
