A Generator for Aldeth & Dan

My sister Aldeth, her husband Dan, and my 4-year-old niece Ari live on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, which was devastated by Hurricane Irma last week. Fortunately, their house is still standing and they lived through the storm. Many of their friends and neighbors were not so lucky. The whole island will likely be without power for months and experience shortages of gas, food, and supplies.

I'm raising this money to help Aldeth & Dan purchase a small generator to help them have running water and electricity for a few hours a day for basic needs. If you know them, you know how wonderful they are and how much they give back to their communities. This generator will put them in an even better position to help those around them.  Any funds raised beyond what they need for the generator will be used by Aldeth & Dan to help others who need it most on St. Thomas.

We don't know when the postal service will be up and running again - many post offices were destroyed and with Irma set to hit FL, many of their main supply lines are cut off. Once possible, we will have the generator shipped to them. I will also post updates on other ways we can help them and their island community in the coming weeks and months.

Thank you all for your support - it truly means the world to them and to our whole family!

Gofundme wants me to add: My name is Martha Pullen, I live in Colchester, VT, and I am the sister of Aldeth Lewin.
