We have already received over $3500 in Pledges since yesterday, so the system is working!!!
Since it looks like we will receive a substantial amount in donations, I am working on a way to use PayPal, and hope to get it ready to go by the end of today, if possible. People seem most comfortable with it. We want to make it as safe and easy as possible for folks outside the country to donate.
The team will be meeting later today to continue developing systems to collect, distribute and document the aid.
I will try to provide daily updates.
In the meantime, please don't let La Manzanilla disaster relief slip from your mind! You can still let me know the amount you want to pledge, if you like. We don't want to slow momentum so are working to get the PayPal set up asap so you can just donate directly.
A note on other types of donations: I am trying to keep this thread on the message board only about this cash donation campaign. We realize there are many needs, but at this point we need to stay focused. Once we assess the needs for each household, it may be that we will use the $$ to get food, or other basic needs.
May I suggest that someone else start a new thread with info on what and how to bring down things/stuff plane or car?
Thanks for your patience and support!
