Dear, Dear Becci:
No you can't help yourself can you? If you feel so strongly why not use the button on the top of this page to donate to another group I'm part of, VivaLaManzanilla. You've heard of us, right? We are the ones raising money, buying mattresses, roofing materials, building materials, organizing volunteers, accepting and distributing kitchen stables and donations that have come across Mexico to help our Mexican friends and neighbors.
To date nearly 18,000USD has come through my paypal account and been transferred to La Manzanilla to help in the rebuilding of homes of our Mexican friends and neighbors. More than 27 families have received significant help from our efforts and there is more to come. Lisa, Paul, Letty, Conrado, Josefina and Enrique are passionate about the work they are doing to make lives better, but they are only a small group of volunteers working as fast as they can.
I suppose I could have suggested to the group that the gym receive some of that money. But I believe the priority is roofs, beds and basic needs, and the money donated through VivaLaManzanilla must go to that mission.
Now, once you get off our high horse, why don't you drop by Josefina's office and see how you can help?
Or make a big tree to donate to the tree part?
Please try to part of the solution, not the antagonist to more problems. The later serves no one.
