My brother and his wife had major damage to their home from "Keith". We've been trying to send them things that they need...but are finding postage to be insane! A 19lb. package cost us $71 to mail airmail. Does anyone have suggestions on sending packages that won't take a month or cost a fortune?

It's gonna cost you no matter what but that seems high. Via US mail pkgs also have to be rather small but Air Parcel Express
has as reasonable rates as I've seen for small and larger pkgs up to 500 lbs. And they claim they can do door-to-door within a week. During the clean-up it took longer but it got there.

Don't forget that they will have to pay a very high duty on anything you send. It would probably be better to just wire them cash and they can get what they need in Belize City.
