  1. Regards,
    I am very thrilled with the work you are doing, thank you for showing me that making a change in the world begins with small acts.
    Iam a Zambian youth, I have always being interested I’m the recycling of plastics but could never really figure out what to do with the plastics I planned to collect… I recently came across this article and thought this is a good way to help children in Zambia aswel..
    I would love to bring your idea to Zambia aswel, but I thought it wise to first contact you and find out what you think about the idea.

    Your quick response will be highly appreciated.
