Category 5 Hurricane Irma damaged and destroyed all of our friend and shipmate Dave Tonon's possessions. Luckily he had been evacuated to Puerto Rico so he is alive and healthy.
Today, September 8, 2017, he returned to his apartment in the US Virgin Islands and found his apartment ruined, and all of his possessions damaged or destroyed.
Dave was not the only one impacted, so while he "turns to" helping the community and commerce return to normalcy, let's help Dave do the same.
As we know, the process of insurance claims and grants take time while money donated through this means is available to Dave within two to five days (with only a small service fee, about 8%, reduced from the gifts). The funds will help Dave get toiletries, food, uniform items, clothing, etc. to get him back on his feet in these early days. Dave will be able to withdraw the money raised from your donations directly into his account.
Dave's always helping other people, so let's help Dave. Share some aloha (even if he does like the Patriots)!
