What To Do With Old Pens12/08/2009
At some point fountain pen converts look at that drawer filled with markers, rollerballs, gel pens, ballpoints, and other unloved writing instruments and wonder what to do with them. Well, here’s the best idea yet: Donate them.
Didn’t know you could do that? Erin at La Plume Etoile has the details but the gist of the idea is simple. Kids in Africa lack basic school supplies and can make good use of your still useful pens. The more kids learn, the better their chances of success in life. Who can’t get on board with that!
So pack up all your old pens and send them where they will do some good. Face it. All they can do in your drawer is dry out. Treat them to a better fate and a retirement in Africa. Is that a cool idea or what!
