Unbelievably, I just filled up two garbage bags with clothes from what I thought was a meager closet...I finally faced the fact that saving "skinny" clothes for when I lose weight is doing me NO favors. And besides, the best thing about losing weight is getting to buy new clothes, right?

I'll be tagging along in the Big Fat Bastard with Tony and Cheri (thanks, guys!) tomorrow morning. We'll be sure to give a full report, with photos.

I'm still available tonight, at a moment's notice, if someone without alternate transportation wants me to come pick up their donations.

We'll be doing our own Sam's & Walmart run tonight. Remember, please drop off any donations at the Luna Blue before 10 pm or send us (or Heather) a PM or email if you need us to come and pick anything up.

We cleaned out our cabinets and came up with an amazing array of non-perishables and other things that will mean much more to the people down south than they do to us. Anyone else?? Come on, it's a REALLY big van!

Also, we have had a wonderful response already on the paypal donations!! I think we're up to $635.00 US so far. Please keep it up. We'll be sure the money is used well & will post with details once we return.

Thanks to all!!
All of you guys are the greatest, will go to paypal in a bit, wish I were there to help out.

We will be carrying down not only donated clothing but anything that can be assembled today. This includes some of the items that Claudia mentioned on the Hurricane Dean thread (utilitarian clothing, non perishable food, candles, flashlights, roofing material, plastic tarps, tents, etc.) and anything else that you may think would be needed in an area badly damaged by hurricane. Generators are especially needed.

If anyone can donate any of these or other items today, please drop them by the Luna Blue Hotel, Calle 26 between 5th and 10th Avenue before 10 pm. Otherwise, please make sure they are at Cruz Roja at the corner of Juarez and 25th Avenue before 8am tomorrow morning.

If anyone is interested in donating money, which will undoubtedly be put to very good use in this area, we will be accepting paypal donations (or cash at the hotel). Once again, 100% of the money collected will go to help hurricane victims in the southern part of Quintana Roo.

To donate money via paypal, go to www.paypal.com and click on the "send money" tab.

The paypal email account to use is:
helpthechicas@google.com. (We are using the same paypal account we used for Alex & Mayte's accident, since it's already set up)



We'll do a report when we get back from our travels with Claudia. Thanks in advance!
Claudia,
On Sunday, or maybe Saturday I donated 8 Very Large suitcases of clothes to the Red Cross... My stuff, My husbands, My babies and Donations taken from the survivors of the Hoover Family... Please make sure it gets to those who need it most.. There are also some baby toys.. shoes...personal Hygeine Products.... as well...

Hi Samantha ! Thank you again that is all loaded up in my car already muchas gracias!!!


I just got this message from kevin sorry it is a bit late but our meeting point office is no longer there


Hola Claudia and Jessica,
I just found out that my office is indeed gone, too. Soooo...if anyone can
get a tent or some small "pop up tents" it would help very much. That
corner is probably still the most central place for all to meet.
