Abaco Island in the Bahamas has been devastated by Hurricane Dorian. We are still waiting to hear from all our family, friends, and staff at Abaco Lodge to make sure everyone is unharmed. We haven't had a report on the status of the lodge yet, but we anticipate major if not catastrophic news. While the lodge has insurance and can be repaired or rebuilt, that is not the case for our family, friends, and staff on the island. The few people we have spoken to have lost everything. This community will need our help to rebuild their lives, so we are asking for help on their behalf.
I've made Abaco my home in the last 10 years, and it's been an important part of my life. It's a warm and loving place, and the people are kind and giving. It's heartbreaking to see the destruction, chaos, and suffering they are going through now.
Abaco Lodge has touched a lot of people over the years, and I hope you will help its community in this time of need. We will direct funds to the family, friends, and staff of Abaco Lodge and the community efforts at large, and a detailed accounting of how the funds are distributed will be provided.
Thank you for your generosity. We will continue to share news and updates as we get them.
