Thanks to everyone who contributed. I’m floored by the response we got.
Please don’t send any more money at this time! Save it for the next project we do.
If you live in Caracas, though, we could use some volunteers to help take care of the details on the ground. Loyal reader (and Ocariz appartchik) Federico Ortega is helping us organize that, so if you want to help with actually going to buy the tools, taking them to the school, making a little YouTube video to put up on the blog, taking pictures, etc. please write to him directly at fortega at gmail dot com.
Thanks again! We’ll keep you posted. We will try to make a YouTube video as soon as the kids have the new tools, so you can see with your own eyes that the money was spent well.
