Hurricane Relief fund for MTV Crew

My name is Jeffrey Keirns and I live in Los Angeles. I am raising money for my friends/co-workers Kelly Kendall, Gabriel Stephens and Kayan Baptiste, who are victims of Hurricane Irma.  Their island of St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands was devastated by Hurricane Irma and most of them have lost everything. Their personal photos are below and on the cover. Power won't be restored for months and clean water and food is in very limited supply. 

Back in 2012, I was working in St Thomas for MTVs The Real World.  Kelly, Gabriel and Kayan were some of the locals who were part of our amazing television crew and they are now good friends.  Their hard work, dedication, gratitude and spirit helped us tremendously during filming. Plus, they made us feel at home on their Island.  Gabriel, seen in the cover photo, would even drive me to work every day in his personal truck.  It is now time for us to give back.

Please help me raise money to get these amazing people back on their feet. The money raised will be split evenly between Kelly, Gabriel and Kayan for themselves and their families. The funds will be spent for needed fresh water, food and supplies.  My withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to them is by using the GoFundMe beneficiary tool to give them direct access to the funds raised.

Thank you so much for your support.
