How to donate pens:
You can send pens to:
- Claus Hjoernet, Holmevej 21 Annisse Nord, DK-3200 Helsinge, Denmark
- Linda Schaffer, 2225 Josie Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90815, USA
...or directly to our contacts in Africa. See the complete list of Pens for Kids Ambassadors here: http://www.pensforkids.dk/Contacts.htm
When you send pens:
When you send a package of pens to Africa it may speed up the customs clearing and save money for the receiver if you mark the package "Pens for Kids" on the front. However - if you do this - don't put anything but pens in it!
The reason for this is, that the customs authorities in Africa seem to have found out that Pens for Kids is a legitimate charity project and not business. So far my ambassadors have not been charged for any duty, tax or fee for a package of pens - as long as there is nothing but pens in the package.
