The supplies need to be in Iraq for the event on October 15th. To be sure all items arrive on time, I am shipping on September 15th. Thanks!

I just read about this in the email that arrived today. There is no way I can mail supplies on time to get there by the 15th so very disappointed I can not help.

Will this event be repeated or is there a place to still send the supplies to be used in a similar fashion?

I was starting to post this on my FB page and saw the date difference.
