Hi, I am writing this post on behalf of Ras Trevor, also known as "King" and "Junior." Ealier this week, his son was shot in Belize City. His name is Derrick Plunkett and he is in Belize City Hospital. He is slowly improving but lost quite a lot of blood...in total he has needed 9 pints. Trev and his family have secured 5 of those and still need 4 more.
If you are O Positive and willing and able to donate blood for Derrick today, please go to the Blood Donation Center right next to Belize City Hospital. I heard that they may close today at 2 but am not sure. Sorry...I am still piecing together information.
If not today, I hear there is a blood drive on the island tomorrow starting at 9 a.m. near El Torito and Island Adventures. I bet if you donate there and tell them its for Derrick Plunkett in Belize City Hospital, they would be able to make the connection. I have not confirmed that but can't imagine that they wouldn't want to help.
Thank you all...as always...for being there when needed!!
