VI Strong Hurricane Relief For STT

My name is Kristina Fillback. I lived in the United States Virgin Islands on St Thomas for almost five years. My daughters father and his family are all there as well. Our beautiful island paradise has been ravaged by Hurricane Irma. St Thomas, St John, and the BVI's took a direct hit.. 80% of the island is destroyed. 40,000 are homeless. They are trying to evacuate as many people as they can right now. They have no fresh drinking water, their food supply is almost gone since the barges can't get into the waters. The government is predicting that it will be at least six months without power but possibly up to a year..... They live off of rain water that is held underneath homes, in a cistern. It runs with a pump, but without power it doesn't work. No showers or toilets, or running water for almost a year is hard to imagine for us here on the mainland. Yes some have generators, but the islands fuel supply is already gone. I'm asking for your help!!! Our little "coconut telegraph" via Facebook has helped us islanders locate and confirm our friends and family are alive and ok... Let's keep using the power of social media in a good way... To PAY IT FORWARD!!! I'm asking you to pledge $10. And tag 5 friends, who can also pledge $10, while tagging 5 more friends. It is a small amount, but with your help, we can get our fellow Americans the relief that they so desperately need. Let's come together and share the love. Their conditions are grim, but I've never known a happier bunch of people, working together, day in and day out to restore some normalcy in the aftermath of Irma. We can do this together!! 100% of the proceeds are going to VI Strong. The organization I have linked up with. Thank you~
