just add water stuff in general, like baking mixes and soup packets
maple syrup!!
snacks- chex mix, chips, munchies of any sort
dried fruit (craisins, pinapple, etc)
magazines, both trashy and otherwise
pictures from home
anything you can think of, its all appreciated!!

Dear Morgan, Happy New Year! We are so proud of you and love to read your accounts of Burkina Faso. We had a wonderful christmas with beautiful white deep snow but missed your sorely and now have 3 inches of water covering one big sheet of ice accross the farm. Tres (Kunsi's large black puffy standard poodle puppy) has made friends the the short black fuzzy dexter cows and it is quite entertaining to watch. We have also had a bald eagle hanging out which in amazing. We send love (and packages.) big hugs and kisses, Mom, Kevin, Ben, Auntie Beth, Uncle Peter, Emily, Kunsi and Tres.

As a member of Friends of Burkina Faso, I'm reaching out to all current PCVs in Burkina right now. We are trying to win "America's Giving Challenge" and we need your help. I'm hoping that you'll have internet access soon and that you'll be willing to upload the widget from the project website onto your blog. Help spread the word so that this project wins an additional $50,000! Merci.
