Irma Relief for Zee Best Staff

To our friends, family and loyal customers of Zee Best.  I write to you far away from the destruction of our beautiful island of St. Maarten but with a heart full of pain.  As you know by now St. Maarten has been dealt a terrible blow that no one could have ever prepared for or imagined possible.   I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from friends and patrons of Zee Best and am able to relay these messages to Dominic in quick phone calls.  These heartfelt messages are what keep people on the ground knowing they are supported and loved.  

Many of you have asked how you can help.  We have heard from everyone on our staff except for one (and still praying that she and her children are safe).  They are alive but in dire conditions.   Some have lost their homes completely.  All have no immediate future to look towards.  Dominic and I have still not been able to plan for what will be of Zee Best.  For sure nothing will happen right now as there is no infrastructure to speak of...not to mention clients.  Those of us who are able to leave the island and find someplace safe to gain footing again will.  Those who have no means will have to stay and figure life out in a place where the basics of food, shelter and water will be rare commodity.   And so with a heart full of gratitude, I ask that you donate whatever you possibly can.   No amount is too little and together we will see to it that our staff, our Zee Best family, are cared for in the best possible way.
