I e-mailed her but have not gotten a answer yet. You said you brought school supplies can you list what ? Pencils, paper? Do the children learn English or Spanish first? English books are OK?? On Christmas ,toys, Games? I need ideas.
Dont want to bring something down they dont want or cant use. Batteries are so expensive so no battery toys? It is like getting a electric toy with no electricty what good would it be. Thanks for any help on sugestions.Good sales going on would like to buy ASAP.What age group also would help.

I Take toys an cloths every year..Almost anything is great.. Forget anything with batterys tho. They are expensive on the island .Stuff that I have taken in the past that have been hits are things like, Crayons, colouring books,coloured felt pens,wind me up toys, anything that makes a sound,penny whistles,harmonicas,and so forth.. Little kid clothes are always a hit,as this sort of stuff is scarce and spendy.Anything with sports team logos on it is always cool too..Dont worry about sizes, There is always some one who will fit it.I usually just raid the local thrift store and fill my bags to the bursting point.As far as distributing the stuff, just inquire at your hotel and strike up a friendship with the Maid,the Gardener,the guy raking the beach and so on. They will need it or know some one who does. I usually try to spread it around as far as I can.This has made me a lot of friends thru the years and its a great way to meet some new friends...Its also pretty cool to see some kid on the street a day or two later wearing "my" new clothes

Hi Cats,
I was happy to see your question. I just fired an email to Conchita as well. If she doesn't respond, I'll plan to do as suggested. I'm planning on bringing down pokemon cards in spanish - don't know if they are into them, but I think that it will be a good tool for my son (8) to strike up a friendship with other boys or girls down there. Are you travelling with children? We arrive on Christmas day and will probably hang around Belize city until we meet up with our tour on the 27th. I can barely wait. Don't tell anyone but I'm at work right now and can't EVEN concentrate, this site is too much fun!
