Earlier this year, I had a run of childrens chewable vitamins produced for Holy Cross school and other causes in Belize. I had originally planned on delivering these myself by bringing some in with us each trip. I have already delivered four bags during our last trip (customs loves to see us coming, we look like gypsies heading through the airport) and was planning on bringing more at Christmas time but those plans have been derailed. Sadly, it looks like I will not make it back until after spring break at this point. I delivered enough vitamins for them to make it until around Christmas in the first delivery, and if I can not find volunteers to help take these down for the time being, I am going to be eaten alive in shipping costs.

Is anyone going down who would be willing to carry a bag or two of these with them and deliver them to the school? Each bag weighs approximately 30 pounds and will fit in a carry on size bag. In a perfect world if someone with an extra free bag or elite status were going they could take the bag at no cost to them. Once on the island, they would need to be delivered to Holy Cross, and you would have to "negotiate" them through customs which can usually be done for around ten bucks duty(which I will include with the bag). I would gladly ship these to anyones door who would be willing to take one or two of them for the school.

Act now before I run out... err scratch that, I only have 13 bags of them at the house right now

We're planning to go down the 3rd week of January if there's still a need then. I'm Gold status with Continental, but you'll have to tell me how this will work with Tropic Air.

Still can't guarantee more than 1 bag since my wife will probably max us out even with the extra bag allowance (LOL).

Let us know if we can help.

Both January and February will be fine, we try to space the shipments out so that they do not have more than around three months supply on hand at any time due to storage issues (vitamins do not keep will in warm tropical enviroments, they begin to lose their nutritional value over time). Fortunately, we have some contacts with both Tropic and Maya, and they will generally allow us to "slip" in an extra bag, since they know where the vitamins end up. All we have to do is give them your names and let them know what flight you are on.

Thank You for the help, I will send both of you a PM with my contact information.

For anyone who is interested and has some space to spare I am still in the vitamin business and would love to be able to get some more bags of them down to the school so that they can be distributed to the kiddos.

T.Q. I tried to send you a pm, but it says you are over your private topic limit. I think you have to delete some old topics to clear up a little space
