Charity Drive

A local insurance company, Island Heritage decided that this year for their charity event, instead of booking a ballroom and doing the same [boring] and expensive dinner event to raise funds for certain charities, to do a charity drive instead.

The company is the "owner" in charge of beautify one of the local "roundabouts" of the island so this year on April 24th, 25th and 26th for every car that drives by the roundabout they will be donating $1 CI dollar to a different charity.

The "Island Heritage Charity Drive" started yesterday with the first Charity.

"The Blue Iguana Recovery Program", which is a project from the National Trust to preserve the Grand Cayman Blue Iguana by protecting their habitat, breeding programs, research, monitoring and education about this endemic species and only found on this island.

I drove by the circle twice yesterday and did my part...

I believe the target for each day is $10 K which they reached on yesterday's Blue Iguana one, woo-hoo!!!

It's so nice to see the volunteer each morning encouraging people to drive that way and donate...

Today's Charity is "Meals on Wheels", is a local charity that provides meals to senior citizens so they can maintain their Independence at home, I believe they deliver over 150 meals everyday.

And then tomorrow's charity has a special place in my heart, because it's the "Cayman Islands Humane Society", I will be make an even better effort to drive by a few times...

Hopefully they will make their target each day, this is a such a easy and fast way to help that I can't imagine anybody not wanting to help out...

Have a great day!

That's a fun idea! Do you drop a donation in a bucket? That's how the fire department does it here....debbie
