On Wednesday, February 4th, I made a presentation of the first ten AEDs that I purchased for the fire stations on the island of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.  I have been actively soliciting funds from the community with the intention of purchasing fifteen of them.  I decided to purchase the first ten so at least they can be put to use and the donors will see that their money is being put to good use.  Everyone on the island is so excited to have these devices in place.  After I purchse the rest of them for the fire stations, I will be keeping up with the fund raising to purchse them for the police, schools, nursing homes and parks.  I have teamed up with a cardiologist who has come with me to meetings and radio talk shows to explain the medical side of AEDs.  This has been a fantastic experience.  If anyone has an idea of a source of funds for AEDs for someone outside of the continental US, I would appreciate the information.
