    I’ll make this a project for my classes – extra credit or something. Would we just mail a box to you guys, or?

      Once you are ready to ship, we ask that you ship directly to Afghanistan unless you are located in the Tampa Bay area in Florida where we can pick up the donations. The cost to ship to Florida is the same as shipping directly to Afghanistan if you use the postal service large flat rate box for APO/military shipping ($12.50 per box).
