PLEASE GIVE BACK TO THE PEOPLE OF COSTA RICA!!!
We are SOOOO BLESSED to get to live in or even Visit as a Tourist to Costa Rica and I feel we ALL have an OBLIGATION to GIVE BACK in whatEVER way we can - via our time, donations (things or cash), service - whatEVER!!
EXPATS LIVING IN COSTA RICA:
There are SOOO MANY Expats with too much time on their hands - make yourself useful and SHOW your appreciation!!! EVERYONE has SOMETHING they can share - be it a hobby, a skill - heck - even just a hug!!! Are you all anal-retentive about the English language?? Use that uptightness in a PRODUCTIVE way by helping kids or adults - or your neighbors learn English and do it for FREE!!!!
You know you have PLENTY of EVERYTHING!! How about cleaning out your closets and cupboards and bring things down that you're no longer needing/using!! For a list on suggestions go to http://GraciasCostaRica.com
I just can NOT get certain message boards/forums or associations geared towards the Expat community that do not allow posts/make announcements to ENCOURAGE the expats to help the people of this country who have allowed them to live here.
