June 2021 Wish List

As I anticipate my upcoming June trip to South Africa to connect once again with the wonderful South African organizations which we support, I invite you to share in the journey by contributing items (directly or through a cash donation) for the Wish List from the organizations. Please take a look at the list here and, if you’re interested in helping out, sign up so we do not duplicate items. I am traveling with one companion and have limited space.

After you make a selection, you’ll receive an email with next-step instructions for donating bought items or donating by check. If you are interested in donating by credit card, please use our secure donation form here and select Ubuntu Global Connections – unrestricted in the drop-down menu.

We leave on June 10, so please send your items or donation by June 5.

Our Wish List includes the following items. Details about quantities, approximate costs, and whether we would like the item or cash for purchase are included on our Wish List sign up form.
