12 Days of Christmas Red Cross Remix and a Xmas Miracle

As part of our Holiday fun, and preparations for the upcoming boat parade, the San Pedro Belize Red Cross decided to record a song. Well known photographer Karen Brodie jumped at the chance to be our jingle writer and she quickly came up with an excellent remix of the 12 days of Christmas. We immediately rounded up a few singers to help the cause and it turned out great.

12 Days of Christmas – Lyrics by Karen Brodie
Singers: Brittany O’Daniel, Shirlee Arnould, Jane West, Melody Wolfe and Sean Connors.
Special thanks to Ralf West @ Reef Radio and TV for his recording expertise.

12 days of Christmas Red Cross Remix Lyrics:

On the 1st day my true love sent to me, a building with a palm tree.
2nd day … 2 centrifuges …
3rd day … 3 pairs of crutches …
4th day … 4 pints of blood …
5th day … 5 golden slings …
6th day … my true love CALLED TO SAY 6 donors needed …
7th day … seven donors giving …
8th day … 8 kids a bleeding …
9th day … 9 splints a glowing …
10th day … 10 seniors fainting …
11th day … 11 wheelchairs racing …
12th day … 12 dizzy divers …

A Christmas Miracle

Since yesterday I started asking for a miracle in hopes that the universe would hear my pleas and send us lights we needed to do our our boat for the parade. At the same time I was crunching numbers and trying to make it work. At the rehearsal I mentioned to everyone to put their thinking caps on for our lighting dilemma and Brittney (always a star) said “I can help you there”. Within 24 hours she had arranged for Dustin Bowen to sponsor the Red Cross Christmas lights. Thank you both so much. Also thanks goes out to Travelers rum for sponsoring some Christmas cheer for our boat 🙂

If you want to get out on the water for the parade, we have 10 reasonably priced seats for sale on our Red Cross parade boat money raised going to cover supplies (some re-usable). If you want one please email me at [email protected][dot]com

Here are a few pictures I took from the rehearsal, start of our boat design build, the recording and around town. The minor cold front we were experiencing passed fast and the weather has been gorgeous and downright steamy the past couple of days.
