Building materials have been a little hard to come by. I hope the Govt. will buy and ship some with all this donated money they have received. And make sure all the stuff that is sitting in customs is cleared out and sent to the proper places."

In as much as Sandshaker posted the above, I'm re-posting the lists of suppliers I posted to the Hurricane Board. It is surely not too late, for anyone who still hasn't, to appeal to their humanitarian sides, or for the rest of us to send a reminder. The more of us who urge them, the more likely they will donate or perhaps offer supplies at discounts.
Let's keep up the effort!

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 . The more emails they get urging them to donate supplies or sell at discount, the more likely they will do it. BUT 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.

Rick,
What info do folks need to urge these suppliers to ship stuff to you? Might appeal to them if that makes shipping charges cheaper. Please post what we should tell them so it all goes right. Thanks. And thanks for all you and Cheri are doing? No chance you could take a pkg to a specific family on CC is there?

heyjude,
Our local Lions Club has offered the services of their Boy Scout Troop #141 to accept donations for the relief effort.They are a 501C(3) and will provide a receipt for any goods donated. As for shipping, if the cartons are under about 60 lbs., AA has generally been willing to ship a few cartons for free on each flight. For bulk shipments, other shipping arrangements will need to be made.I understand there is a truck leaving weekly from Houston that has been using spare space to carry supplies. So, basically, if you can get the donation, we can probably work out the shipping if the goods can get to Texas. Good Luck.
Edd
