I'm sure you've heard that donated apparel from the United States often finds its way to markets in developing countries. NPR recently published a story on the topic, and their article featured a few photos of used T-shirts in a Kenyan market.
One of the shirts in the article (pictured above) appeared to be a party favor for Jennifer's Bat Mitzvah, held November 20, 1993. According to a name on the inside, the shirt once belonged to Rachel Williams.
NPR decided to put out a call to the Internet, hoping to find the original owner and close the loop on the shirt's life cycle.
Within a few days, a string of contacts and friends connected Rachel Williams and Jennifer Slaim with NPR. Here is a shot of Jennifer with an extra shirt from her event.
We live in such a small world!
