  1. Hi,

    Is there anyway I can still contribute items to the Reusable Goods Project? I reside in Singapore.

    • Thanks for your offer. Our collections for 2009 have concluded. We’ll be collecting again in 2010. Would you like to leave us to contact you then ?
      However we are collecting used books – story books, reference books, novels for children between 6 and 18, this month. If you have any, please let me know.
