Hurricane Irma Relief Florida Keys

Hello My name is Joe Beaudry and I am from Fort Lauderdale. As an avid fisherman and one that loves to be on the water; I always have considered the Florida Keys as my home. My step-brothers grandparents had a house there and as a little kid we would always go. After they sold the house we continued to go for fishing, diving, lobstering, and sightseeing. My 2nd cousin moved to Big Pine and, so did his mom. After that one of my closest friends moved to Duck Key and we made so many memories and built the strongest relationship there. Later they moved just North to Layton Key and we continue to build those everlasting memories. Our friends have built a catering business there and have introduced to many of their local friends and they are all amazing people.

As a veteran I feel like its my calling to help them. I have a lot of resources and I am certain I can help them. We have collected a bunch of donated goods and set up the GoFundMe to add another way to expand our resources. With the money collected we will purchase additional food, hygiene supplies, sleeping materials, tools, fuel etc. 

We will be driving down to the Florida Keys and hand delivering every single item that is donated. We also are very handy and we will be helping clean up, cut trees, move debris, and do whatever is needed of us. Our first trip is at the end of this week and we will go until Sunday.

The money will go into the bank account and then transferred to GoFundMe}WePay}Bank Account and then all transactions we be through the ATM card. Please note 100% of these funds (besides what is taken out from GoFundMe/WePay) will go towards aiding families in the Florida Keys. We are a 100% transparent and have no issue showing our transactions. I have ran this through my accountant and we are good to go.

 

Thank you so much for your support!
