Not long ago, Elisabeth H. sent us a note saying she was taking her new monogrammed Lands’ End Tote with her on a volunteer experience through Tanzania, Africa.
Little did we know just how personalized her tote was going to get.
So, I wanted to tell you about my Lands’ End Canvas Tote.
I had been wanting to own a Canvas Tote from Lands’ End for a while now, but never got myself one until I recently purchased some swimwear for my trip to Africa. I got a Tankini Top and a Swim Tee, and I finally bought a Canvas Tote with my initials in my favorite color.
I had the idea to bring my tote on my travels throughout Africa so that it would later be a fun reminder of my adventures. I also planned to have the kids from the school I would be working at sign the bag.
As the end of my volunteer experience teaching at AMAP (African Modern Arts Project) in Bagamoyo, Tanzania came to an end, one by one I had each child of Class III come up to the front of the classroom, pick a color pen, and write their name on the bag. They were so excited to be a part of this project.
