Check out the HB wishlist blog for more about some of our honored library friends:
A message from Maggie: Once again Loco Gringo Forum Members have come through for the library. You rescued us after the hurricanes and were the very reason we were able to rebuild and open our doors and once again be a library and a beacon of hope for the locals. The generosity of all of you never ceases to amaze me! You came through after the robbery- carrying heavy tools down in your luggage, understanding that this was really an insult for all of us at the library, as well as an insult to all of you who diligently brought these items down for us. You have my word the replaced items are secure.
This recent raffle raised over $3,000 US - this is amazing! Your generosity, help, concern, and labor have completely restored my faith, and that of my co-workers, in the importance of our work and the presence of this library in beautiful Akumal.
Without a doubt we would not be here without your assistance. You keep our doors open! And, for that and many other reason, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You are my heroes!
*Special thanks to Gary and Kay, Shapeshifter, Badger, Maggie (the other one), GBG, Jeannie (the raffle keeper), Iguana Mama, Deb2Gs, Craig in Wisconsin,... so many others.
Sincere thanks from all of us at Hekab Be Biblioteca de Akumal!
