I would also be remiss in not pointing out that there are angels amongst us already. Hollito, a regular commenter on many of our blogs, donates small business loans to people in developing countries. He also donated a laptop computer to a child in Xico.
I did not have the micro-loan web site available when I wrote that paragraph. Hollito was good enough to forward it to me. It is: http://www.kiva.org/.
Wayne has recently posted instructions that those of us living outside of Mexico should not try mailing items to Xico. He has an alternative plan of using PayPal for direct donations to John Calypso. Or, an alternative would be to donate through the micro loan link Hollito provided.
Either way will help people who really need the help.
