Disaster relief worker, just cravin to help again!

Hey! I’m Hilary! I have a passion for doing relief work and got accepted to go back to the Bahamas to help with the rebuild from Dorian. I haven’t been able to do it this year as I ended up needing to have emergency surgery in St. Thomas on my abdomen to save my life and as soon as I came home I found out I needed to have spinal fusion surgery and thyroid tumor removal surgery and have to spend all my savings not being able to work during my recovery, but was finally accepted to do another project. And CAN NOT WAIT to be back helping people, connecting with others. I will be headed of to the Bahamas at the end of November when this hurricane season has finished. But as I have no been able to work I have used all my saving I had played for this trip to survive after the surgery. I am doing all the side jobs I can. Walking dogs. Helping with groceries for older people to avoid covid. But I know I won’t be able to make it by my date in August for my birthday. So I am a I’m asking for help! A $1, $5 anything will help. I still have to pay for my flight by have most of my other gear needed from other projects. So what’s needed now is my flight round trip(prices change due to not knowing when I can book it but at least a few hundred) new back back so I don’t need to check a bag($200) new work boots($150average)and than paying my phone while I’m there ($150 for the month I’ll be gone) and spending money for weekends since the work we do during the week is free so it be nice to have a few extra bucks to run around with:) so again anything can help! And I’m so excited to be able to be back helping families again!
