Shipping Costs 4 Shoes to Senegal

Donation protected
I am re-lanching this "Shoes4Senegal" ~ 2018  as an annual campaign

I will be returning to Senegal,  West Africa again this year and will once again need your help to cover the shipping costs due by June 17, 2018 for the additional shoes we collected again this year from local area Columbus Schools students to be donated to the children of Senegal!

Greetings 2 All ~ my name is, Is Said, I am a local Poet in Columbus, Ohio.  As a Poet, I also regularly facilitate various events of Poetry, Storytelling and Short Plays here in the Greater Columbus Arts Community & throughout Ohio. Most recently I held Poetry classes for some local elementary school students in the 3rd, 4th & 5th grades. We all had so much fun with Poetry and learning about the world that we live in. I also happen to mention to a teacher, if she could ask the school's principal if the students in my program would like to help me out by collecting some shoes, to be sent, since I
l'll be approaching upon of my 34th Annual August visit to The Motherland.  While there I spend time doing my creative writing of poems, plays, etc. and I also donate several boxes of shoes to youth & families of Goree Island, in Senegal - West Africa.

Again this year my local Columbus students along with the help of their parents and family members, helped me collect well over 500 Pairs of SHOES!  As an Elder, and Air Force Veteran on Social Security, my take home pay don’t always take me home. :-) So I am in need of some additional assistance to help finance the overseas shipping costs of the donated shoes. We need your generous help in shipping costs of @ $600. to pay for everything, and THANK YOU in advance for your generous kindness in this humanitarian effort, it is greatly appreciated. ~ Is SaidPeace!Our overseas shipping deadline date: > @June 17, 2018<, so we are in need of everyone's assistance ASAP!
