Becky/Shannon Irma Relief Fund

Hurricane Irma was not kind to many Floridians and certainly not to my sister and niece, Becky & Shannon.  Becky makes her living on the water, backwater guide fishing in Everglades National Park and basically lost her tackle, her boat lift, her dock but not her boat.  The boat lift and dock were not on her property or insured by the owners, therefore the is no insurance to assist in rebuilding them.  She was able to pull her boat out of the water and take it to a safe and "dry" friend's house.  Everglades City where she lives, has been ravished by the storm.  Not only has she lost the ability to fish, but it will be some time before the town is ready for tourists to come visit and fish.  In addition her daughter, Shannon also makes a living on the water with the JW Marriott on Marco Island.  She is a captain on a large Catamaran Sail Boat and takes guests out to see dolphin, shell and spend time on the beautiful Gulf waters.  The hotel is now closed and will not be until at least October 2nd at the earliest.  Which means no income for either one of them.  Shannon lives in Port of the Isles which is in between Naples and Everglades City so even finding a temporary job for income is not practical considering everyone is trying to clean up from the storm.

So I ask you to help them to get through this disaster by raising money that will go directly to supporting them while there is a the lack of income and by helping Becky to rebuild her dock and replace her boat lift and motors.  Anything you can do is appreciated, let's show these girls how much they are loved and appreciated!
