US Virgin Islands Irma Relief

As many in the states are preparing for the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, US Citizens in the carribean territories are already suffering the loss of homes and businesses (which are the least of our worries as we prepare for hurricane Jose, search for loved ones, and deliver food and water for survival). 

Before the storm, the people of the carribean do not have the luxury of evacuating and once the storm has passed, the media spotlight immediately moves to the continental US (which is also in major need of assistance at this point in time). The residents in the US Virgin Islands are also citizens so I'm creating this group in hopes that they are not forgotten during this time of rebuild.

As much as we wish we were home to help rebuild, I believe that Brett and I are in the states for a reason, so we'd like to use this opportunity, our connections, and even the basic privilege of having internet in order to raise funds to send back to the rebuild of the US Virgin Islands. 100% of proceeds will be sent to St. John Rescue and the St. John Community Foundation, which are local organizations that we trust to use all funds in the best way possible. Since Gofundme/paypal does take a percentage for their services, please contact me directly if you would like to write a check or send cash [phone redacted] or [email redacted] . If you are part of a large business, please see if your contributions can be matched.  

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME!
