years ago, i brought orange tic tacs, lifesavers, etc that wouldnt melt. for older kids, they love t-shirts with anything from US written on it, ie - bands, logos, ads, etc. dollar store toys & trinkets are great too. my vet also donated some flea/tick collars & sample meds for the dogs & cats. enjoy.

Here's a thread on the topic:

There are mixed feelings about giving gifts directly to the kids and the expectations it sets up. Everyone has to decide from themselves, but I have heard several say that candy is not a good idea. I am a big fan of the library and they can use all they can get. I've done story time there and took bottles of bubbles for the kids, they loved them!
Also contact DJean through this message board about school supplies for the school in Dangriga, if you're interested.

Hi Jane!
Great pics on your most recent trip! (How was the coffee? wink )

It's still fun here - always some stuff ya gotta ignore - but most of the old gang is still hangin round and there is no shortage of silliness! Come on in - the water's fine, and you strike me as an excellent swimmer! laugh

oops, sorry law. the flower thru me off... or too early to even see who i was yacking at!!! the coffees were nescafe (what we think of as drip or american style), french press - yummy and bold, and turkish coffee - like espresso but with muddy stuff in the bottom, made in little copper pots. tea (called chai) in pretty little fluted glass cups good too. all of the above served sweet. mmmmmmmmm.
