Help for people of coastal Jalisco devastated by Hurricane Patricia

Update posted by Daniel Beck On Nov 29, 2015

On behalf of the biological field station at Chamela, and the communities near the field station that were struck hard by hurricane Patricia, a BIG THANK YOU!!! Your generousity gave us $4,359 dollars to help recovery efforts ($2048 raised here on GoGetFunding and $2311 raised offline). Last week we delivered $2000 to the field station to help pay extra workers to clear the trails and roads around the field station that were blocked by fallen trees and debris. That money not only helped with getting the field station back on its feet, but provided extra work and $$ for local workers who's famlies are also recovering from the hurricane. The remaining funds will be used to help dozens of families in the communities of Francisco Villa, Emiliano Zapata and Arroyo Secoy rebuild the roofs blown off their homes by the hurricane. We will also deliver funds to the elementary school in Francisco Villa to aid their recovery efforts. Taggert and I are heading down on Thursday, December 3rd. We'll give you a final report after we return. Mil gracias y gran abrazos!

It's not too late to donate to help people devastated by Hurricane Patricia. Resources are still badly needed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVn-kuimX7Q

First a big thank you to over 35 donors who have kindly and generously given to the campaign so for. With donations we have received offline, we are now well beyond our initial "goal" of $2000. We will continue to accept donations, however, for as long as possible before we leave to deliver the funds raised on December 3rd. The more money we are able to raise, the more help we can give. There is practically no limit to the help needed for people to recover from this disaster.

The spirit and hard work of local people cleaning up after the hurricane has been amaziing, but recovery from the hurricane has been hampered by the hundreds of trees knocked down, making it very difficult to access areas that need attention. Much of the money we have raised will go to the biological field station to pay local workers to clear the trails and small roads of fallen trees and other debris so that workers and investigators can access areas and equipment that need attention, replacement and repair. This needs to happen soon. So thank you again for your generous donations. They will be a HUGE help!!!
