Support Bonaire Can People Bring Items?
Hi Jake and Linda,
I think your Support Bonaire organization is great. Thank you for taking the time, and investing the $$$ to set it up. Many of us who love Bonaire want to give something back. Even though we can't be there all the time, Bonaire seems like a second home...a haven from the hussle and bussle of daily life in the USA!
Question. Are there items that people could bring down to help the organizations supported by Support Bonaire, Inc.? We are arriving 6/28 and would love to overpack our suitcases with stuff!!!
Small, packable, donatable items that would present be of use include:
- B&W & Color Print cartridges for an Epson C60 (Maria Hoppner)
- Paintball guns & paint balls (Donkey Sanctuary)
- Replacement floppy drive for a Dell Latitude LX notebook computer (Hoppner)
- External CD-ROM which works via Parallel port or PCMCIA and is Windows 95 compatible (Hoppner)
- Clothes (small kids up through teenagers) (Hoppner)
- Any small computer printers (Wowo di Bario, Hoppner, STCB)
- Money always works too :-)
Thanks for thinking of Support Bonaire and supporting Bonaire, Scott!
I can do the B&W and Color cartriges.
I'll check into the paintball guns and balls.
I can do an External CD-ROM
What about an external floppy for the Dell?
Can anyone else out there bring down a small printer? Think I'm going to run out of room!!!
Sara...are you going to be on Bonaire to use the paintball gun and balls to mark the Donkeys?
And don't forget the animal shelter. Here is the list from their website:
- Frontline Tick and Flea Preventative - we prefer the largest size for dogs 89-132 pounds.
- Cat carriers
- Deworming pills for kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs
- Dog toys (designed for outdoor use) and rawhide chews
- Cat furniture (can not be made from untreated wood)
- Digital camera
These aren't luggage sized of course, but just in case someone is interested in a larger contribution.
- Washing machine
- Used truck
Not sure how to attach an external floppy to the Dell notebook (which you may be familiar with :-) ). I don't think it's possible.
Part number for the swappable floppy drive is Dell 79029.
I'm striking out on the floppy drive...went to Dell's website and searched under that model number but could not find anything. Is this one of the old Dell's I donated??? If so...it is an oldy but goodie. Is there a more definitive model number for the Dell laptop? I can call Dell and try to find the part.
Yep - it's one of the notebooks you donated :-)
Model is LX4100D
Thanks for the model number...I'll try to find the replacement internal floppy drive.
Got the paintball gun and 500 paintballs for the donkeys. Not sure if I can bring the C02 cartidges in checked baggage...may have to go via container...will check.
Got flea collars, de-wormer medication, rawhide chews and outdoor dog toys
Got the printer cartridges 2 b&W and 2 color
Got the external CD Drive...it is USB...so hope that works.
Got some clothes for Hoppner from neighbors with kids...very clean and little wear on them.
See you soon,
Outstanding, Scott! What a role model you are! :-)

Jake and Linda, I figured I would check and see if any and/or all of these items are still needed.
