    ATTN: Outdoor wear/apparel industry mags or if you know someone who is

    Hello,

    I'm working on a project to gather donations from outdoor wear companies. The donations are going to a number of villages and field staff in the southern African country of Lesotho. Unlike the traditional image of Africa, Lesotho's lowest elevation is 1400m (4,500ft) and is entirely mountainous. During the winters the temps regularly dip well below freezing. With their severe AIDS epidemic and poverty, we are looking to outfit some of the most needy in the remote villages of Lesotho. Specifically we are looking for winter hats and some other cold weather donations.

    If any of you are interested I can send you more information or even if you have a contact of someone worth contacting anything is helpful. Just send me a pm.

    Why not open it up to used items that are still in good shape? I'm sure this group has nearly a mountain of items that we could ship to you on our dime and then you could send it all out together.

    I had this thought recently and had thought about organizing it myself, but this seems perfect.
