This is an online donation form for donated funds to be sent to Placencia and the surrounding area if folks are interested.

We raised $40,000us that way after Keith. I will hold onto the charge data after input for a few days til I could determine the best way to get it to Placencia.

folks can also send $$ to Red cross noted c/o Belize Hurricane Fund.

$11,033 us raised as of 3 pm Belize Time Friday, 70 donations

This money will be sent to Belize untouched by any middlemans cut. We are going to send money down thru Frank Redmond. He is setting up a Barclays account just for these donations. He is out on the front lines today working with the Mennonites to bring relief to hard hit areas.

All funds raised by this list will be channelled through:


The Red Creek Mennonite Church,
San Ignacio,
Cayo


Pastor Frank Friesan
Tel 501 92 3722


Goods will be distributed throughout the Punta Gorda area through:


Caribbean Light and Truth
Punta Gorda


Tel 501 72 2344


The principle behind what we are doing is moving whatever is
purchased free. Labor for house construction will involve the new
owner with groups of Mennonites working as well for free.
Food and clothing will be distributed free.


I will have feedback from Punta Gorda by the weekend on the
suggested use of new funds, suggestions coming from the people of
PG. We are shipping another 3 tons of corn flour tomorrow, along
with other food items and clothes.40 ft container is going.


We currently have committments for the construction of 15 of the
$750 houses. We are waiting to see if this is the type of building
people want in general.


Thanks to all.

Marty: Thanks for following up - I am willing to donate money/supplies in whatever way works most quickly! Would this online pool go directly to NEMO or would you manage the distribution? Red Cross is always a good option - but I wonder about how quickly things get dispersed? Thanks for all you're doing... Pepper Chastain

I would get ahold of the mayor and town council of placencia as soon as possible and ask them the best way to get them the $$.

then i would read them the list of donations and card data. and it would be in the bank pronto with no overhead. we did this during keith also.

Its ready at:

Great idea! They'll need cash more than anything in the early going. We're having dinner tonight with Rick and Cherri, let us know if we can help.

Flawless system - thanks for setting it up! Just wanted to check that these funds would be available for surrounding areas as well, e.g., Independence, Seine Bight, Mango Creek, etc. If other funds need to go to Red Cross or elsewhere for the greater area Stann Creek/Toledo districts... please let us know. Pepper

Thank you so much Marty!

Such love and dedication. I really like knowing that my entire donation goes to the people affected. I hope everyone who reads this board will donate something and realize what a tight knit, loving community this is.

Americans were very generous with the WTC donations. I actually heard they had so many donations they were setting up a board to distribute the money. Sounds like a committee to me!

This is the 1st post I've read this morning I have my fingers crossed that the news is not too bad.

Hey Edd, tell Rick and Cheri hi, and maybe ask about the airline shipping, if its possible this time. Might be tougher to ship by plane with the increased security at the airports.
