UPDATED OCTOBER 2ND

John & Cindy Molesworth, From Allentown NJ  needs money to pay for the shipping of a container full of relief supplies for the Island of St. Thomas, USVI.

  We, as a family, want to help the "Island Family"  we've met in the last 5years.  The people of St. Thomas are some of the nicest, warmest, caring, loving humane people we know.    We have a fond connection to St. Thomas and the people on the Island.  
First off, for those who know John & I, know - 1. We NEVER ask for money.   2. We are very generous, giving & caring.  3.  We think of EVERYONE as family.  St. Thomas has been hit with 2  CAT5 Hurricanes - YES TWO DIFFERENT HURRICANES IN 2 WEEKS - Irma and then Maria..... When I say their family, it's the whole island, NOT just friends.  We, as a family,  back here in NJ, feel bad that we can not be there to help the Islanders. 

So, the best thing we thought of was to ship off a container of NECESSITIES/RELIEF SUPPLIES to EVERYONE on the island of St. Thomas.  The donations are already coming in and other family members of the people of St. Thomas that are here State side, are sending donations for all.   

WE HAVE THE CONTAINER!  With the thanks of these funds.  The monies collected over above the goal for 
the shipping cost , will go to purchase NEEDS of the Island people.  Some of those items we will be purchasing  are listed below.  We may not get to all the items, so we need your help and support!  The shipping of the container is $3100 from Pensauken NJ to St. Thomas, USVI.  The container is self is $2100.  

Distribution of contents of container.
I am working with Ruth Prager who has the authority to have the container delivered to a friends construction company.  There, Ruth and a few other Islanders, will unload and distribute the relief supplies through several organizations she knows....ie Local Fire Department and Shelters.  She herself is raising money to buy $20K worth of Solar Lamps for the island.  The container may be shipping those too!

Please think about donating.   The sooner you help, the sooner we can help the people of the US in St. Thomas can be relieved in every day simple activities.  

Furthermore, if you would like to donate supplies, we suggest you order through Amazon.com   If you are a prime customer, shipping is free for most items.
100% what we recieve will go towards the container and Supplies that the Islanders ask for.  There is a wish list on the FB Page, What's going on St. Thomas.  Remember, this is an ISLAND! There are no roads from neighboring states.  They need the ships!
