Flip Flop Shop SXM after Irma

Dear family, friends and friends to be,
My name is Vanessa Essed and my home is beautiful St.Maarten. Like so many others, we too had to endure the destructive natural forces of hurricane Irma on September 6th. We are so blessed and fortunate that all our loved ones came out of it alive but our precious island is destroyed on a personal and business level.
7 years ago I decided to start my own business with Flip Flop Shops and found two of the greatest people I now know to work for me and stand by me through thick and thin. Hurricane Irma has damaged our shop considerably and it will take a lot of hard work, sweat and tears to get back on our feet.
We are ready to put in the work but with no kind of income at this point or insurance payout, it makes it close to impossible.
We therefore humbly ask for your financial support which will help us rebuild this great shop with great people on our beautiful island of St.Maarten. As my brother put it, ' Irma knocked us down and gave us a serious beating but she could never knock us out!' Thanking you in advance Vanessa Essed

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your great support and donations thus far!
Just for clarification, you will see another name as beneficiary, my sister Jennifer Essed.
The Go Fund Me payment partner can only send funds to citizens from supported countries and St.Maarten is unfortunately not one of those countries.
My sister is doing me the favor and withdrawing the funds and then wiring them for me.
Your donations will therefore reach where they are supposed to and that is to Flip Flop Shops St.Maarten.
Thank you all so much!

Warm regards,
Vanessa Essed
