Help Carigas feed St. Thomas

"Well the chandelier is gone, but the ladder is still here" What my uncle, Randy Driscoll, said after assessing the damage of Hurricane Irma.

This powerful storm has ravaged parts of St. Thomas, ruining their single hospital, destroying thousands of homes, and removing basic everyday needs that we take for granted, such as food and warm showers.

Just found out my Aunt and Uncle are alive and okay, and after being spared, decided to focus their energy towards helping the rest of the community get on their feet. The Caribbean heavily relies on their peak season of tourism (coming up) and seeing as many people will not be vacationing here for some time, they are just trying to stay positive.

As you can see from the video, their structure suprisingly intact, they are repairing the grill and immediately opening their doors  to feed (gratis) the community that is desperately trying to resume life.

Government help on the island is slowly coming, but any donation would be tremendously helpful.
