This past week was a big week for H for H. I am on the cusp on getting great sponsorship from Western Digital. Not just financially but volunteers to help package the supplies which really makes a difference. I should know more this week or next and will share as soon as I hear back.
I am also working with Malcolm at Art Pass to ship supplies to Nigeria together so we can get cheapest shipping rates possible. There's a more to the shipping thing than most people realize. If you have a full pallet to ship that means you can send it freight. If you have a single box it falls under parcel.
Parcel = air shipping which means $$$$
Freight = is a container ship which is less $ because you only occupy a small space
What does this mean to H for H? It means we need more medical supplies to ship in order to get the biggest benefit for everyone.
I am meeting with Medline next week so I should have an update on supplies very soon. Until then, studying for final exams.
