I know there are several people here that have adopted various worthy causes to support on Ambergris Caye. What do you support and why? How did you choose?

This is actually a great post because in most cases you will find that there are many many causes that need your help. One important thing to remember is you can't do everything so pick something and dedicate yourself. You will find this rewarding and in general a successful way to tackle issues and problems within the community.

Nancy, The SPSC has donated over $35K to the two schools and the library. We are completing a kitchen at the RC school now, to serve balanced meals to the needy kids and tuition for thoes that need it.

i agree with TM that the frustration is that there are too many worthy causes, and one often doesn't know which to support.

its kinda obvious my personal causes on the island are SAGA, & the need for sensible, reasonable & sustainable development. i think at this point i've voiced why quite enuf. smile

my husband chooses to support Holy Cross School. he visits every trip.

i suppose each one who chooses a cause picks one that is dear to them for one reason or another. some are tangible, some idealistic.

so, there's my answer. it isn't very exciting, but at least i replied. smile

Ernie, that is a great idea. How can I help?
My favorite cause is the public library because it serves people across the whole economic, social, and age spectrum. Plus I BELIEVE in books

Sweet Jane & Natalie, thank you. It is a bit overwelming.

Until I get more feedback I want to keep my feelings to myself. But I do think for me a narrow focus would be more appealing.
A rough childhood will do that to you. I really do want other's views. Not just what they do but why.
