I know you guys are Honduras and not Guatemala, we all know abolut the Hurricanes that recently hit Guate. A PCV friend of mine in Chisec, Alta VeraPaz in Guatemala is doing a special project for X-Mas in Guatemala -- and I was actually looking for an old friend of mine who went to Honduras (as a nurse), who might be willling to help out with this -- but now that I think about it, the more the merrier. His name is Scott Rowland and here's the e-mail he sent to friends:

"I will be spending it
with the orphans and other families in the Guatemala City Dump. I am still sane, I promise.
I am going home the first weekend of December to
pick up my dad´s professional Santa suit. That´s right, Santa´s personal helper, Santa Scott, will be pulling the Guatemala shift. He will first be visiting villages around his summer residence of Chisec on Christmas Eve and will then take his slay to visit the kids in the city on Christmas day. There is an NGO (Non Govt Org) who works with the orphans and families living in the
dump who will be Santa´s helpers and guides. I am
looking to put together at least 2000 gift bags with a pen and pad (hotel style) and a toothbrush and toothpaste. I am also going to be getting two
Polaroid cameras and enough film for 2000 pictures. This is my grand ¨Santa Goes to Guatemala Plan.¨ I hope to bring a little bit of happiness to at least 2000 kids in Guatemala for Christmas 2005.

If you would like to help in any way, it would be
greatly appreciated. I am asking for:

Pens - any type
Paper Pads - hotel type or similar
Toothbrushes - know a dentist?
Toothpaste - small tubes
$100 for two Polaroid cameras
$2000 for film -- I had no idea Polaroid film was so expensive when I dreamed up this project but it must happen.

For those wishing to make a tax deductable donation (501c3) send checks to the following organization (don`t forget to write my name in the memo space of the check) They will give me 100% of your donation.

Friends of Guatemala
P.O. Box 33018
Washington, D.C. 20033

Where can you send these items?
To my parents house:
4 Pinegate Court
Peachtree City, Georgia 30269

I will be picking these items up the first weekend of December.

Thanks for your help,

Scott Rowland
