Pretty awesome.

I got a whole bunch of useless shoes and dresses, not sure if African people would be interested in it , but definitely can share it.

Good to hear that people are doing stuff like that.

according to reports Ethiopia's economy is enjoying a boom and hopefully the country will be able to stand on its own feet before long. Ethiopian businessmen, maids and workers in general are to be found in all the oil-rich Gulf states

quincy, hi. you're right about the incline in economy graph but currently their people are very poor and starving. i haven't been there myself but my Russian colleague was there last month and told that ppl are very poor.
i specifically mentioned Ethiopia in my first post (though i'm visiting Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Ethiopia) because this picture http://www.inminds.com/globalisation.html is stuck in my mind since ages. i don't plan to resell or give away cloths to friends, etc. thsi is why i mentioned that i will send you pictures of people receiving your goods. anyways, i'm not allowed to take more than 35kg weight so obviously i'm looking for something around 20kg in donation from different people.
choice is yours
