      1. Whether the number was 500 or as you advise 450, the charitable donation and effort in bringing about a positive beginning to the school year for those not able financial to afford these necessary tools to a child is commendable. I hope you will agree. Being able to give is a blessing for all those who can and a double blessing when they do recognize the power and value of charity. Kindly, Hezi
