Flooding In Mexico

This may not be the right site to post but as you probably know the State of Tabasco and parts of Chiapas are severly flooded. The paper today said 1 million people's homes have been flooded and 100,000 are walking the streets because all the shelters are full. Any help in the form of monetary donations would alleviate some of the problem. I don't know how you can donate from outside Mexico but I guess you can get info if you contact the International Red Cross.
Corruption is a problem in Mexico and like in most things not all the money will get to the right people but even if only some gets there it will help.
Sorry this is not travel or bike related. I will post some bike stuff in the future.
Thanks
Garry
PS If anybody comes to Mex City we are always willing to put them up and show them around.

Some quick research shows me that donations can be made through the Mexican Red Cross/Cruz Roja Mexicana website at

http://www.cruzrojamexicana.org.mx

Anyone know of any call for volunteers? I know there's probably no use for traveling motorcycle superheros, but I can still fill sandbags and drive a boat.

Ideas?

Mitch

PS It's weird because I was JUST there, in Chiapas. I must have missed the worst of it by days.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
