Wish lists are a big part of living here. There are several organizations around Ambergris Caye in need of donations to help them provide much needed services to the community. I have listed their needs below and am hoping that a few puzzle pieces fall together as a result of putting this out there.
If you know of a good organization in Belize that has a wish list and would like help getting it out there for people to see please make contact with me. [ I missed the San Pedro Library this time but someone please send a list for them – also thinking Mary Open Doors and Liberty Children’s Home.
