Attention all U.S. donors: postal rates increased on May 14, making our work more difficult. The U.S. Postal Service eliminated the M-bag possibility, both surface and mail, for books to Kenya.
The most economical way to send your books from the U.S. is by FLAT RATE BOX. You can pick up these boxes free of charge at the post office or make sure you mail your books in a square box. Twenty pounds or less of books mailed to Kenya will cost $37 at the post office, or $35.15 if you purchase your postage online. But if the box weighs above 20 pounds, the cost spikes up because priority mailing kicks in. For example, mailing 25 pounds of books to Kenya costs $126.75. SO better to keep each individual box of books at 20 pounds or less. Otherwise, mailing your donations could become prohibitively expensive.
Donors from other countries and continents: please check your mailing rates.
THANK YOU for all your contributions, which are making a difference in this region.
