Marty here from franks, he had great news about the red cross matching our donations so far:
Through this list and particularly Marty's efforts we have so far
raised $15,000. ........37 houses.

Through other sources we have an additional $12,500
promised......31 houses.

As we passed the $20,000 mark, we petioned the international Red
Cross to at least match the funds raised so far.

Today, they have agreed to match the first 50 houses by donating

We now have committed funds for 118 houses. 82 to go.

If we can find a way to raise an additional $12,500 (32 houses) I
have high hopes that I could persuade the Red Cross to fund the
remaining 50, using the same principle of matching what we raise.

That would make 200 houses.

can we do it ?

I will be down in PG with Marty and Peter thursday PM and friday,
and we will post pictures. I will also ask Marty to give his own
update on his return to Cayo.
