My name is Phillip Steward and I am living here in Costa Rica. There are many reason I love this place so much but the biggest reason is the people. The Costa Rican people are the greatest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. I have traveled all over the world and have chosen to retire here.
I guess what I am saying is that I love it here and there are many Americans feel the same way. I think that now is a good time to show appreciation to the people here.
I do not know how to do this, and I am hoping that one of your staff or maybe a reader would be willing to help me.
What I am suggesting is that every American in Costa Rica donates $50 or more to help the people who are going through this terrible flood.
If we somehow can get this set up and make sure the money goes to the right place, I will be the first to donate.
Someone please help me make this happen, and give something to the country we live in.
