Hopefully others will have some alternative ways to get the word to her...I am sure she is battling to get new contracts and worrying about her husband's travails, but HEY...she is the only person I know of that can get some immediate publicity and awareness for our situation. http://www.algonquin.com/marionjones/message.html

This is an excerpt from her online chat on NBC...
My mother's family and my family is from Belize, so I'm actually half Belizean, and wanted to show my support for a country that doesn't get much recognition. I'm 100 percent American, but wanted to show support for the Belizean in me as well.

You've always been an athletic inspiration to everyone with your smiling face, your incredible dedication, and your amazing athletic abilities.
When you won the first race in Sydney, we were all very proud, but when you got the flag of BELIZE along with the Stars and Stripes, it was a dream come true to see the flag of this little country get international recognition.
Seeing your beaming face and your mother's proud smile was an inspiration.
Now I ask you to take time and take advantage of your super high visibility on the world scene to please get people of the world to realize how terrible Hurrican Keith's damages have been to tiny BELIZE!
The Cayes have been devastated and the inland areas are still flooding as never before. This tiny and poor country is looking at over $200 million in damages and a paultry $1 million in aid has been pledged. The world press is NOT paying any attention to our plight and the public needs more information to get them to help.
Honduras got weeks of front page press due to the terrible loss of life there, but the loss of lively hoods, and the way of life for thousands of Belizeans has been almost as bad.
Please see it in your heart and schedule to have a press conference to aid your mother's homeland in this dire time of need.
Thank you...

Gee, I wonder if she's a tad tired after all the media badgering, running her ass off and travel of the last two months or so...
Maybe she's as ragged as A.C. after her own personal 'whirlwind'!
Should the burdens of the ancestors be thrust upon one so young?

Just an update.....even though Nike is notoriously greedy, we have contacted them because they are one of her sponsors. Maybe this will help a little as well.
