Hola, my husband and I are new to this forum. We have been to the DR several times and have made friends with some locals in Bayahibe. We will be returning to Dreams La Rommana Jan 16th. We send down packages to our friends on a regular basis to help them and their family’s out. We have a family member who works as a drug rep and she has donated a tun of stuff to us to give out. We have about 25 (or more) back packs and more than 100 first aid kits. I have sent down packs for our local friends but how many first aid kits can you send to one person! If you guys have any addresses I would be glad to mail down packs to your cause.
I have also read about airlines allowing extra luggage for donations. Can anyone tell me how I might find out about this? Do I contact my airline? We would love to bring down an extra suitcase for donations
mailing down packages gets very expensive but we know how thankful our friends are. We would be glad to hear any ideas people have for helping out.
