We are getting the relief situation together tonite. Thank you very much. We're just shifting from chaos to relief work, and we need a little organization first.... Susan Castillo is meeting with an established Belizean Relief group in New Orleans tonite, where the details are getting worked out. Susan will work with Patty Arceo and the Town Board on the island.
Jeff Gram is headed to Cayo Espanto, he has raised $5,000 and is buying relief supplies with the money on his way to the island. He is now working hard on his resort, and will be out of the loop now for further donations, as he will be quite busy getting the doors open to Caye Espanto.
Online donations can be made to the Town Board at: //AmbergrisCaye.com/towncouncil/keith.html
If you email me at email@example.com, i will have your email for when we get kicking on this tonite and early tomorrow morning.
Thank you very much, Marty

Marty: Thank you so much for the information on Ambergris. My husband and I are concerned about the status of Ali Gentry owner of El Pescador, her husband Alonzo, their pets and staff. We just left Belize on Saturday morning. Anyone with any information regarding El Pescador please cc;mail me back. They are like family and we are very concerned.
