A special LOOK project area has been our "care packages" program - - LOOK was actually originally started with an intention to deliver care packages to children in the poorest orphanages to let them know that someone half a world away was thinking of them, and to make their day a little brighter. Although LOOK later expanded to cover many more needs of the children, we continued to try to send as many children as possible a special care package with some age-appropriate gifts packaged together for their individual use (e.g. a small toy, a baseball cap or hair ribbons/barrettes, a new toothbrush and bar of soap, a pair of chopsticks and a drinking cup, a writing notepad with pens, or other similar items). The children have always been delighted to receive these care packages. From 2005 to 2010, LOOK sent more than 2000 care packages to children.
