How would you ship 500 trees to Iraq?
By plane, of course. I realize the holidays have just passed, but this was just too good not to share. I recently reconnected with an old friend from high school via Facebook and she posted the following photos of some charity work she organized in December. Basically, her organization worked with a nursery and collected 400 trees from Long Island, New York and 100 from California and had them shipped via DHL to the US troops in Iraq. I'd love to get more details regarding the customs processing, security technology and other supply chain related things, but these photos will have to do for now. A side note, depite the significant cut-backs by DHL in the US, its good to see that this still made it through.
