School supplies, Band-Aids, jump ropes. Here are just a few of the items you can pack in a small space in your suitcase to benefit local communities in 54 countries.
Since its founding in 2009, Pack for a Purpose has facilitated the donation of 30,000 pounds of supplies to clinics, schools and orphanages. Visit the website, select your destination to find nearby accommodations that accept the supplies, and a list of what the communities need.
