The Story of the Last 4 Fed*Ex Boxes...


This is a very interesting story. Tim and I took all 9 of the Starfish boxes to Fed*Ex together. At first we only had the funds to send out the first five economy, but we were able to find out how much more we would need to send out the last 4 largest boxes. We put the word out that more funds were needed and within days the donations came in. We took the last 4 boxes back to Fed*Ex and they informed us that they were no longer offering the economy rate and it would cost us $500 more to send these last ones out. Well, I had no idea what to do. I wasn't going to ask for more donations. I sent Amanda an e-mail explaining the situation to her and she put me in contact with the Hidalgo family. They aren't related to the horserider (I asked them). Mr. Hidalgo works for a major airline that gets a very nice discount with Fed*Ex, so we shipped the packages to them along with a check to cover everything and they were able to ship them off for us. So, I am so relieved to tell you all that all of the remaining clothing, food, meds and shoes that were sent to me are all now on their way. Thank you so much to the Hidalgo family. There is an extra box on here, because the Hidalgo's sent a box of clothing along with ours.
