Packing and shipping protection (and love)

February 10, 2010

It strikes me as something of an understatement, the term "care packages," when referring to the procurement, packing, and delivery of six UPS cargo planes full of underwear, sleeping mats, soap, and toothpaste for the children in Haiti.

We've taken to calling them "kids' kits," "child protection kits," and, also, "love kits." But really, we're talking about 50,000 boxes of essential disaster relief. We're talking about providing a modicum of dignity and comfort to children who have lost everything.
