One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Hello,
I have been approached by a director of 11 different children]s villages around the world for donations of sparless foil stunt kites for the kids in those orphanages. If you have a used foil stunt kite with lines and handles you would like to donate the address and other info. is listed below. PLEASE HELP.  I did run this past Steve and he gave me his blessings to post this here.

The name of the organization is “International Children’s Care” and their web site is WWW.Forhiskids.org located near Vancouver, WA.. The director’s name is Doug Congleton. The shipping address is 2711 N.E. 134th Way, Vancouver, WA. 98686. They are looking for foil stunt kites to share with the kids that have never even seen a stunt kite before. He will be leaving to Mexico the 28th of this month, and can take foil kites in his baggage. You can send them directly to Doug at the above address. They have 11 children's villages all together with 700 kids. You can contact Doug directly at Doug@forhiskids.org  if you wish. He is looking for donations of foil stunt kites for the kids. I am sending a couple myself. The children's village in Mexico has 42 kids in it, and they need more than the 2 kites I am sending them. PLEASE donate any foil stunters or lines you have to help this cause. Everything will be deeply appreciated.

I heard from Doug, and they have had to postpone the planned trip on the 28th of this month until the 24th of next month.  To date not 1 kite has shown up to go to the kids.  REALLY not a single kite or any cash to buy them kites has shown up.  Doug does have a PayPal account if you don't have a good used foil stunt kite to donate to the kids.  Come on people can't we do better then this???  This group was checked out by Steve Hall BEFORE he gave me an okay to post it here.  These kids have never even seen a kite before.  There are 42 kids in the orphanage, and a single kite I sent Doug isn't enough.  PLEASE open up your kite bag or wallet and give these kids more kites.

PLEASE???

Thank you so much for your kind donation.  I just spoke to Doug the other day and he is now willing to except framed stunt kites and SLK's as well.  I send a box of about 20 mixed SLK's and framed stunters to him to take with him to Mexico.  I would like to ask everyone to PLEASE search through your kites and donate a kite or cash payable through PayPal so it will be possible to help the other 10 children's villages enjoy kites also. 

Sincerely
Charly
