We're Famous!

One of my favorite movie scenes comes from the film, The Jerk, with Steve Martin.

Script excerpt:

Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!

Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.

Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 - Johnson, Navin R.! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.

----

Ok, this really isn't a phone book, nor is it in print, but we have secured the domain name of ACERBELIZE.COM (did you know that caps don't matter in the top level of a domain name, i.e. acerbelize.com takes you to the same place as AcErBelIZe.com?)

Anyway, stay tuned, and look for us on our new web site www.acerbelize.com

Oh, if you forget, this link ( acerbelize.blogspot.com ) will take you to the correct place.

Where are we today?

So, where are we at today:

Still trying to increase awareness of the team (for ANY Medical related Emergency call ACER at Island Ferry (226-3231) Island Ferry is the command center and they will send help, but someone has to call them.


Increase the number of active team members call ACER @ at Island Ferry (226-3231) or acerbelize@gmail.com

Collect additional funds, supplies and purchase equipment (Donate via paypal acerbelize@gmail.com

Please!

It's my understanding that the Ambergris Caye Emergency Rescue (ACER) Team wasn't called. We have a member that lives about 1/2 mile away with life support equipment on board, that could have responded, along with others in the area that could also respond.

If we aren't notified, we can't help...

Please Support ACER and get involved!

Medical Supplies

We have collected a large number of medical supplies for Belize.

ACER always has a need for more medical supplies.

Our current collection will arrive Oct 31st, and will be donated to Ambergris Caye Emergency Rescue (ACER), The Poly Clinic and SAGA.

Some may ask why such a broad mix of places? Good question!

As we collect supplies for ACER, we have also been offered medical supplies that may not fit in the ACER mix, but would be very well received by one of the other two organizations. (Example: home nebulizer really won't do the team much good, but for a local family with someone that has asthma, this could be a life and death device!)

We also may have some access to some meds that are recently expired, that the clinic couldn't use but SAGA may be able to.

Make sense? Cool... have questions, drop us an email or a PM, we're here to help!

We GREATLY appreciate your assistance!

Donate if you can, please! Paypal acerbelize at gmail.com or hit the donate button at the right side of our blog: http://acerbelize.blogspot.com/

ACER Donations

We have added a donation button. This will allow us to collect funds for equipment, supplies, shipping for ACER, and also the POLY Clinic and SAGA.
