    Ok! Jamaica is not rich money-wise but don’t you think that with its close proximity to Haiti people could donate food and clothing and ship it across on a big ship dispatching it at the harbour. Also Jamaicans need to know that what they lack in money they make up for in kudos. Cache and world standing and can go and are welcomed in places where Americans could never tread. Look at how the Chinese landed and boastfully proclaimed their arrival. If a ship landed from J.A. and a few hundred people dressed in our colours or even some red, green and gold stayed 3 days then the ship went home again to pick up more donations and change shift with another set of people, don’t you think that could work? It might also raise a lot of eyebrows!
