Support My Sister Sana Rogers

On September 6th, 2017 Hurricane Irma ripped through the Virgin Islands impacting so many.  My sister who has been a St. Thomas resident for over 25 years and a St. John business woman was greatly impacted.  She recently opened a St. John business and because of this storm her business is severely threatened. The storm ripped the roof off of her apartment building leaving the building open to the severe wind and massive amounts of rain.  Within two weeks a second category 5 hurricane, Maria, came through the same area. Now, the apartment above is collapsing into her apartment making it difficult to salvage any of her possessions.  Her apartment is uninhabitable and she needs to find a new place to live. 

Her business has monthly expenses of around $7,000 and her monthly rent is around $1,600 plus since she has to move she has to pay 2 months deposit for her a new apartment. 

Please help to support her business which was just beginning to take off as well as find a place to live. She has been a successful retailer on St. John and part of the businesses that drive people to this island. We need help within the next two weeks for her to survive on the island and rebuild her life. Thanks for your help and compassion.
