Donation

I just want to thank all our friends and guests
for a Donation of

2414 PESOS

for Mayte and Alex the "bloody chicas"

special thanks because the most of our donors don't know them but anyway wanted to help

by the way Manne and me had been that morning in this new Hospital and Mayte seemed to be as "fine" as possible after just one day of the accident. Of course Alex is going to need more time to recover, but they both are so lucky to be alive and I think a lot of people in Playa are going to help Keith and his girls to go through this difficult time.
we wish them all the best

Manne and his Susie

Yesterday, Mayte had some stomach pain and so they gave her a scan, which thanks to god showed nothing wrong internally. She was in a lot more pain yesterday than the day of the accident, I think it's settling in for her. Poor thing, her left ankle was also injured pretty badly and that seemed to be what was causing her pain, but after they cleaned and redressed the wound, she seemed more comfortable.

One thing people might not know about Mexico is that when there is an accident, often people are taken to jail until the "fault" is determined. In cases like Mayte and Alex, when the people in the accident have to be in the hospital, guards are stationed at the hospital to make sure people don't flee before guilt is determined. Two guards have been posted at the hospital for these girls, one for each. The man who hit the girls was taken to a different clinic, and one of our friends with clout spoke to the police to ensure this man didn't "escape." Well, yesterday at the hospital, the guard at the hospital approached me and advised me to find an attorney for Mayte and Alex, because the other man who is at fault "escaped" from the hospital. I don't know what this means, but it sure scares me that the girls might be found at fault for an accident not of their making. I am unfamiliar with the laws of accidents and I don't know what will happen. Please keep your fingers crossed for this family.

Tony and Cheri from Luna Blue have graciously set up a PayPal account to help Mayte and Alex, but it will take a day or two for it to take effect.

In the meantime, you can go here and go the reservations page to donate whatever amount you like. In the comments, please just put "Donation for Mayte and Alex" so that Tony and Cheri will know what the money is for. They can turn this around immediately to give to the girls.

THANK YOU all SO much. I am just sick myself with worry.

Very sorry to hear the bad news.

Bad drivers, bad roads and pathetic road systems are a constant problem living here.

We wish them a speedy recovery.

Didn't anyone get the name, address and a photo of the man who caused the accident?

Why was the bar forced to close down? I'd noticed it was closed and the flags were gone.

I can't believe I have forgotten until now to thank every one of you who have taken the time to read about my friends and send well wishes. I am a little out of sorts.

Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart. Sometimes I feel like something isn't real if I haven't yet shared it with you Playa.info people. You have become such a big part of my life and I am so grateful for your concern and caring.

Mindbender, Keith was forced out by the restaurant next door, which held his lease.

Surely there's no case to be tried if the coward has done a runner?

$$$ was sent to Luna Blue ... now all I can do from here is send love and healing thoughts.

The whole Bloody Chicas group was so nice and fun at the LunaBlue BB (Cheri's B.day).

Heather,
I spoke with Robert today and he filled me in on everything. This is so horrible. They are definately having a pretty tough time these couple of weeks. I have been trying to get ahold of Keith but I don't know if he still has the same cell # from my last visit. At any rate, please send the three of them our love.
As soon as the paypal account is up and running I'll be donating since that is pretty much all I can do from here in Chicago. If you or anyone can think of anything please don't hesitate to ask!
Please keep us all informed on their status.
Love to Mayte, Alex and Keith...Dragan & Anja

Online Donations

So far five people have generously contributed online, for a total of $135.00 for Alex and Mayte. Please keep the donations coming in! Every little bit helps. Remember, you can donate now via the Luna Blue website reservations page or by paypal when that account is up and running (a day or two). We'll post when the paypal account is open. Either way, the money will be immediately turned over to the sisters to help with their medical expenses.

Please help these awesome girls during this tough time.

We've just received several others, and I checked & things seems fine, so you may want to just try again. As long as the confirmation page shows "Approved" at the top and not "Denied" (which is usually a sign that the card was entered incorrectly or something like that), everything should be fine. Thanks.
