I live in the US and spent 4 weeks volunteering in an orphanage in Bangalore last summer. I am seeking for a cheap/cheaper way to be able to send clothes/toys/other items to the 40 adorable children I lived with there... The US postal fees for boxes is insanely expensive... does anyone know of an organization/company/website where people who need to send items for humanitarian causes can contact people who are planning to travel somewhere and have extra luggage space?... Or, are you planning to travel to Bangalore and willing to help?!
thanks!

The only thing I know about is this organization:
http://www.samaritanspurse.ca/occ/shoebox/

$7 to send a shoebox to various developing countries.
