Upping the goal for manatees in Belize!

OK. It's like this: With 11 days to go in my fundraiser I have upped the goal to $700. Does that sound like a lot? Well, did you know that an orphaned baby manatee must drink a bottle of milk every two hours? And that in Belize the milk they must be fed costs $14-17 US dollars per bottle? You can see how even the wee-est manatee costs quite a bit of money to help, not to mention expertise, equipment, heart and soul. 
Even $3 makes a difference. Let's do this for the manatees! (And many thanks to those who have already chipped in!)
