Please consider helping my family recover and rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Irma inTortola, BVI.
Edgard's mother's siblings who live and work in Cane Garden Bay have lost everything after Hurricane Irma blasted it's way thrugh the British Virgin Islands. Uncle Tony and Aunt Magaly run the beloved Tony's Welcome Bar with their sons Chavez and Joel.
They have lost everything they have worked their entire lives to build.
Please consider giving what you can to help them recover. Your gifts will help to purchase food, water, and medical supplies so that they may survive this initital crisis period. And as we begin to move forward, your gifts will help rebuild Tony's Welcome Bar, which is their livlihood and means of survival.
If you have ever visited the island you know how special Cane Garden Bay is. It is even said that it was at this beach bar where Jimmy Buffet wrote his famous song, Cheeseburger in Paradise while sitting in the hammock. It feels like that paradise is far away right now- but you can help us work to get it back.
Please help give our family hope and a way to move forward during this most devastating time.
In full disclosure, I will be personally withdrawing the money in order to distribute it to the family. We take this very seriously and will keep you all posted with the use of the funds.
