    Lightbulb Wounded Warriors Trip to Bonaire 24th to 31st August 2019

    after a 4 year break Bonaire Talk is supporting the Fundraising for this years Wounded Warriors Trip to Bonaire.

    Bonaire will once again host the Wounded Warriors during the week of August 24th through 31st, 2019.
    During this week, severely wounded troops and their significant others will travel to the island to complete the
    final step in the process of obtaining their dive certification, hosted in the past by Captain Don's Habitat Bonaire.
    Each year the island opens their arms to welcome this group and shows them not only the natural beauty and pristine
    waters of Bonaire, but also the warmth and friendliness of the Bonairean people and their genuine hospitality."

    In years past we have sent approx $2000 to the Warriors.. this money goes directly for their benefit.. sometimes it pays for a dinner or three… or it goes directly into their pocket so they don’t have to open their wallets… they have given enough already through their service…

    This year we (Bonaire Talk) will be helping by spreading the word about a Go Fund Me action run by Stewart W. Snyder III, President of the Handicapped Scuba Diving Alliance, and BT are now also collecting to provide a BBQ meal at Rum Runners.

    Donations are possible/welcome via this GoFundMe LINK - CLICK HERE

    the proceeds go DIRECTLY INTO the WARRIORS TRIP FUND not through some CEO's pocket !!!!

    Sent in a PayPal donation to the board email address. Let me know if you got it, thanks. If I am on Island I would also drop by and buy the folks a round, or two.
