zellmayerAnnette: Where do you get the donated items you send to Cape Verde?
Brigitte: I get things from my friends, and from two doctors I know and a car dealership that I visit for this purpose from time to time. I also help out twice a year at a flea market held in the local parish community. When it’s over, I can help myself to two boxes of children’s clothes and one box of toys.

Annette: How do you choose what to send?
Brigitte: Well, I try to be environmentally friendly. I bear in mind that, unlike here in Austria, there’s no waste incineration service in Cape Verde. That means: no battery-operated toys; pencils and coloured pencils instead of felt pens; alcohol thermometers; and solar-powered pocket calculators. And I reject T-shirts with skulls and crossbones or similarly unpleasant motifs.

Annette: Who pays for the postage?
Brigitte: Initially, my idea was: if I raise the postage costs from friends and acquaintances, then I’ll do the work myself. I asked people not to give me Christmas or birthday presents but to pay to send a parcel to Cape Verde. However, since I started this scheme in April 2012, donations to cover postage have steadily decreased. In 2016, I paid to send 15 parcels out of my own pocket – 10 kg costs 44.89 euros.

Annette: Where did you get the idea in the first place?
Brigitte: On a trip to Cape Verde. I gave our tour guide – Annette! – some dressing material I had brought from two ‘expired‘ car first-aid kits, and asked if she had any use for it. "By all means!" she said ... So I hit on the idea of making my friends aware of the usefulness of these otherwise unwanted kits, and asking them to give them to me instead of throwing them away. Later, I asked if a flea market held in the local parish if I could take some of the things left unsold at the end of the day for use in Cape Verde.

Annette: Why do you support this cause in particular?
Brigitte: Well, it’s very rewarding being able to contribute in this way. What started it all was that I happened to have the dressings with me, spoke to Annette about them, and it took off from there. Staying in touch via the Internet reassured me that everything I send does actually arrive, and that it really is needed and used.
