Thanks so much. I sent a link to the original post to some of the kids in Brazil. They were truly moved by your generosity. I will send and take the kites down over the next few months, and post some pics of their happy faces.
Because of all of you kindness I am taking 12 kites and bars, extra line, pumps three boards, bladders, and a couple of harnesses! For a village that had four kites for thirty kids learning twelve additional kites will have a real impact.
In addition, I want to thank Airtime kite for their donation of 50 of their new valve traps. Most of you know that valves are a real bugger on old kites. The Valve Trap is perfect since you can quickly and permanently re-attach any valve that fails. Here is a quick overview of how they work: http://kiterepair.tumblr.com/tagged/valve%20trap
Thanks again...and BTW it was easy and there are many other places in the world that could use or worn out gear.
