I challenge you to go through your stuff, if you live anywhere nearby, and donate to this cause.
These people did not have much to begin with, but starting from nothing is pretty darn tough.
We ALL have "stuff" we're no longer using and can stand to let go!! PLEASE DONATE IT - everything from household items, furniture, appliances, food, school supplies, clothes for ALL size from baby+, cleaning items, personal hygiene items, shoes, toys++++!!!
The Heredia Police station and the Cruz Roja•Red Cross are accepting donations.
I'm leaving for Nicaragua tomorrow so I can not do anything more than share this here - BUT - perhaps people can call their local Cruz Roja's and ask them if they will be a collection point for people to drop off donations (though someone NEEDS to also GIVE THEM SOME MONEY FOR GAS to take it over!!!)
(THANX for sharing this Wendy!)
