Dick,

That has been my thought since the begining. I think we need to give them a few days to get their 'stuff' together. We all have to remember they too may have lost homes and they don't have the resources we have here.

Right now we all need to give them some time and exercise some patience. We have two trips all bought and paid for but doubt we'll end up doing either one. May end of sending my airfare, once refunded, to Samaritans Purse and hope it helps SXM relief down the road. Won't donate to just anyone at this time. Just a thought.......

--------------------
Respectfully,

pat

Maybe it is here and I haven't seen it but is there any word on the condition of Spiga and Lara and her family?

I have been careful to highlight that Samaritans Purse' DC-8 aircraft is humping it in and out of SXM without outright doing so.

Quite frankly, anything we'll donate will just replenish clearly what 4 planeloads already have been delivered. Plus Haiti.

As ive slightly mentioned in posts, i never heard of them til last week, but i can also say ive not heard of anyone else touching down at PJIA.....and i watch flightaware every day.

they are delivering. Anyone else, i have no idea.

I wish all the people well and wish i could help makemthe m happy and healthy

Have not seen any pictures or read any reports about Oyster Pond - both French and Dutch sides. Captains Olivers Hotel? Dinghy Dock bar? Mamas Pizza?

Samaritan's Purse is a quality organization that is very efficient with donated funds. They are likely to be the best way for those who want to help SXM right now. I have personally experienced them in several instances and will continue to give to the people of SXM through them.

Yes, Samaritan's Purse is a very trustworthy organization. I am very familiar with them and have supported them in many ways throughout the years. They take care of people around the world and making donations through them is a great idea.

PelicanPirate (and all those that have given positive feedback) a shout out from the Prime Minister for Samaritans Purse

Statement on rebuilding

WE ALSO HAVE A DISASTER ASSISTANCE RESPONSE TEAM FROM SAMARITANíS PURSE ON THE GROUND WORKING TIRELESSLY. THIS LEADING DISASTER RELIEF ORGANIZATION IS DELIVERING FOOD, WATER AND SUPPLIES TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST, AND THIS EFFORT IS CONTINUOUS. OUR NEIGHBORS ARE SHOWING THEIR HUMANITY TOO. AFTER ALL, WE ARE ALL THE CARIBBEAN. WE ARE ONE.

One of the best organizations by far. A great organization for island donations!

I chose to give to club orient employees...its where i stay...

but i certainly think we should all give what we can to help our SXM friends.
