Thanks to folks who donated money

About a month ago I asked Eileen if she would post a message asking for donations to buy food for the people who lost their jobs when the beach was taken over. The total she collected was $3,800 pesos. That was added to money donated by the Tenacatita gringo community in the U.S. and Canada. Some small donations of food were also given by local stores. Yesterday we gave away 125 bags of food - eggs, milk, pasta, oil, onions, tomatoes, toilet paper, soap, crackers, sugar and salt (another generous donor sent beans, rice and lentils to be given out by one of the stores in town). On behalf of the people who received the dispensas, I'd like to thank whoever donated money and also to Daniel for continuing to post links to newspaper articles. If anyone wants to see photos from the food giveaway, go to:
