Clothes are on the list of relief supplies published by the Belize Embassy and therefore
are included in our free shipment program.

700# is great, anybody else out there go more??

Please email your e-mail address so that I can send a "Dock Receipt" as you will need this for delivery of the goods to the Dock.
