OK folks, Rick and others stress that the big need now is for building supplies.

Here are four of the BIG companies (competitors) in:
Building Materials & Construction Supplies

American Builders & Contractors Supply Co. Inc.
click on 'e-mail center' in the list on the left

Cameron Ashley Building Products, Inc.

Georgia-Pacific Group
click on 'contact us' in the top banner

North Pacific Group, Inc.
click on 'contact us' in the top banner

The more emails they get urging them to donate supplies they more likely they will do it. BUT like Simpson Strong Tie*, LLBean, etc I imagine they'd insist on going through the Red Cross or some 501C(3). So let's all get behind this and urge these companies to
join relief and rebuilding efforts. They can be urged to contact the Belize Red Cross.

Let's get behind this effort and send off lots of emails! I'm going to look for other
suppliers we can contact as well but from my research so far the above are the BIG four.

Nice work Jude....Thanks!
Will start my email now.

Just a suggestion....I'm going to write one email and send it to all 4.
Each will see the other's names.
This may seem underhanded....LOL....but competition is everything to big businesses, even when it comes to donations.
They always try to outdo each other.

We can use all they willing to donate.
Looks like the flooding on the mainland is getting worse and people are losing houses there too.

Help out folks and send your emails!

Nevermind....nix that idea...they all have forms with hidden email addresses...the only one I could retrieve one for was the ABC Co.
Very Smart......LOL
