I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com
(you do NOT need to have a PayPal account to do this - just a credit or debit card)
Do YOU have/know of a Business•Event•News•Place•Things 4 Sale•Rent to add? Email:


• APPLE LAPTOP - Do you have a Laptop you're not using? Mine recently broke so I'm using a lender. Must be new enough to run current Skypes & have an SDCard slot.
• Amazon.com or GoDaddy.com Credit•Gift Certificate (attn: SarongGoddess@gmail.com)
• Something else to share?? A gift certificate or invite for your business? I'm open!! (at times I'll add other things here that I'm seeking)

GLOBAL AUCTION for Democrats Abroad - 2013

Donate and sign up your friends too!
2013 Global Auction - "Going Live" November 14, 2013 to raise funds for 'Get Out The Vote'

Also below:   2013 Global Donkey Race  Grand Prize: "real live donkey" ???

Even if you’ve already donated to the Democrats Abroad Auction there is more you can do.  See what Meredith Wheeler from France did.
Here is what you can do 
(after you take quick peak at our website BiddingForGood.com/DemocratsAbroad)
  1. Still haven't donated, well put on your thinking cap and  click  "Donate an Item" on the right and follow the instructions, then ask a friend to do the same on the website.  Be creative, see what others have done!
  2. Next, both of you might want to register. Go to the website above and click "Register to Bid" so you can be ready to bid on items when the 2013 Global Auction goes "live" from November 14-24, 2013
Why should you register?  You (and your friends) will have a chance to bid on items from all over the world and, including great trips, art, and services. There will be some awesome values.
Benefits of donating items to Democrats Abroad 2013 Global Auction
  1. Instead of a cash donation, you and your friends can donate items (use of a home, art, services, or any item of value) that a fellow US citizen might want.  The Global Auction is a way to raise money to Get Out the Vote (GOTV) for Democrats which is virtually "painless" and doesn’t require dipping into your pocketbook.  
  2. Did you know, a Democrats Abroad donation is one of the best political donation one can make? That’s right.  DA volunteers have a proven track record for voter turnout at less cost/voter than most other organizations.
So even if you have already donated an item, tap your friends and family who may have something unusual or attractive or funny to donate.  And if you haven't donated anything yet, get started NOW! Each donor need only be over 18 and a US citizen.  Remember, you can get started now by clicking the "Donate an Item" button above OR go to BiddingForGood.com/DemocratsAbroad, click on "Donate Item" on the left and follow the instructions.
If you need help, email us at DemsAbroadAuction@yahoo.com.   We'll send you a manual donor form or contact you directly, whichever you prefer.  Thanks for your help in making our 2013 Global Auction a success. 
Don't miss:   2013 Global Donkey Race details at the bottom of this page.   Your country can win a "real live donkey"  to a needy family overseas.
