The Crayons Project is the most popular of AFRICA Seed's programs. Teachers have their students collect shoeboxes of used crayons and mail them to Africa. Preschools through colleges have collected as well as churches, sororities, fraternities, restaurants and more.  See CRAYONS HOW TO

In past years we have had some remarkable youth from different towns in different states avidly collect crayons for the Project.  We are pleased that when these 11-14 year olds seek a community project, that they choose The Crayons Project.  In each case, they got their entire communities involved.

        It's so easy!  Just collect them. Contact us.
