BTBCF Meet & Greet - Costambar - El Carey - Jan. 31, 2014


El Carey has been rebuilt and we have been given permission to have our Puerto Plata donation Meet & Greet there again. Friday, January 31st at 1pm. DREAM Project and our scholarship student will be there along with reps from Mustard Seed Home; Dominican Eyes; Sosua Kids; Fundación Inmaculada Concepción Hogar Emiliano Tardiff (an orphanage in Santiago); Fundacion Juventud Y Naturaleza(Santo Domingo); Mariposa Foundation. We are also making a donation for Isaida Naomi to enable 3 months of growth hormone…

Once again, we will be giving donations of both cash (in the form of Bank Drafts) as well as hard goods. A friend in BC has already told me she has 500 pairs of eyeglasses for Dominican Eyes.

If you are going to be in the area and want to make donations of school supplies, medical supplies, clothing or footwear, PLEASE join us and make your donation to the various charities who will be there.


Looking forward to seeing everyone again, see you there. If anyone is coming from Playa Dorada maybe we could share a taxi?

Cheers Amandalou :-*


Ron & Ruth will be coming from the Gran Ventana - more than likely Victor will be picking them up - we can make plans - will you have the same cell # as last year? I’ll send you my cell # once I get it.


We should be able to make it. It will be our last day there and we have to fly home Feb 1 (the next day). I expect we’ll see Don and Olive a few times in the two weeks prior to the meet&greet, but it will be nice to see Amandalou, Ron and Ruth again. It’s been a few years since we’ve seen them …

Bath soap

Had a good turnout at the Meet & Greet this afternoon… will post photos on our Facebook page and have them put on our website when I can.

Thanks to everyone who helped our fundraising efforts over the past year… we donated $7,200 US today; $1,000 US tomorrow and $1,000 mid-February.
