Prints for donors

Sunday 14th April, 2013

We’ve spent the last few days packing, packing and…more packing – using lots of recycled cardboard too, thanks to Hakim and the guys at Waverly Wines, 6th Ave, NYC! Prints incoming to all those who donated over $100 for the River Gambia Expedition  – plus postcards for everyone – to our ‘An Exchange’ and ‘Kickstarter’ campaigns last year.
