Remove all extra items in everything, such as Church Bulletins, candy wrappers, sticky notes, paper clips, photos, etc. If a Sunday School quarterly or magazine is open, close it so that the front cover is showing. The outside cover should not have any drawing on faces, excess writing that does not pertain to the material. (It is ok for writing of names and notes and underlining to be outside and inside.) We don't want anything on our material that might give a Bad impression of the United States to our brothers and sisters in Third World Countries. Everything should only show that we love and care for them and that what we are sending is all about Helping in Building God's Kingdom!
