I’m going to be in the US for a few days from May 15-May 17th. I’m looking for some gear to take back to Uganda. This will save us a ton of cash if we can get donations. Note that these are in no particular order, and some are wants and not needs, but it’s all stuff we’ll use.

Contact me at johnny (at) this_website_without_the_www (dot) org for mailing address, details and questions. Thanks in advance!
