Donate a Dollar to save a life
To date (January 3rd, 2012) we have raised $100.00
CR Surf Travel Company is trying to raise $1095.00 to purchase a Automated External Defibrillator (AED) device that would help victims of drowning when their heart stops.
On January 3rd, 2012, we sent a $100 donation to the Dominical Lifeguards to help support their programs. The official fundraiser has stopped, but any donations will continue to be forwarded directly to the group.
In Costa Rica there are dozens of drownings each year and many times the victim is brought to shore unconscious and cannot be resuscitated using C.P.R. With this device in the hands of a trained lifeguard, it can be used to save lives. The first AED will be given to the Dominical Lifeguards group. The second to the Cocles lifeguards, and the third to the Tamarindo lifeguards if they are still active.
Ideally, we would like to raise enough to purchase a trainer AED ($379) and extra batteries ($39) and supplies ($40), but this is a start.
Please use the Paypal donate button below if you care to donate. Each month we will chart our progress with a graph. If by the end of 2011, not enough money is raised, the balance will be distributed equally as a donation to all three lifeguard groups. WE ARE NOT A 501-c3 non profit, so you cannot use this as a tax deductible donation. But we want to help save lives and this device will do that.

The ZOLL AED Plus is more than just an AED...it's a CPR coach, too! That's the "Plus". Imagine having a tool built in to your AED that guides you through the entire resuscitation from "A" to "Z" with feedback to make sure you do everything right. No other AED has it...
The use of an AED is a critical component of CPR. That means you or your rescue team will probably have to perform chest compressions and rescue breathing on your patient after you've delivered life-saving shocks. During an emergency like this, it might be a challenge remembering all the proper steps of CPR. But there's no need to worry! The ZOLL AED Plus with its clear voice prompts, pictures, and text display (and optional ECG display) is with you the whole way.
What's more, the AED Plus is the only AED that gives you feedback during CPR. The voice prompt instructs you to press harder if chest compressions aren't administered correctly. Better yet, the ZOLL's voice prompt reassures you when you're doing it right, too! Even ZOLL's unique single-piece electrode pad is fool-proof. It goes on easy and has markings to show you where your hands should be placed for proper chest compressions on your patient.
Need more? You've probably seen the commercials on television about how the ZOLL AED Plus is the only AED that uses inexpensive Duracell consumer batteries. It's true! There's no need to purchase proprietary battery packs for this machine.
The ZOLL AED Plus has all the features that make it perfect for novice rescuers. The optional ECG upgrade makes it perfect for medical professionals, too. And the optional pediatric electrode pads make this a great AED for schools and places where children might congregate.
