Bring the Elizondo Family Home!

Miguel & Danette Elizondo and their 2 children (Ema & Miguel Jr) have been living in Dominica since 2016. Miguel Sr is currently attending Medical school at Ross University School of Medicine in Portsmouth, Dominica. Their island was hit hard by Hurricane Maria on Monday night September 18th, 2017. Before Hurricane Maria hit, Miguel, Danette, and their babies had been on the road and in the air trying to escape Hurricane Irma.  The expense trying to avoid Irma took a toll on their finances. They were in Dominica for almost 2 weeks when Hurricane Maria hit.
There has been little to no contact with Miguel and Danette due to lack of electricity and cellular service. We finally heard from Danette Wednesday afternoon from the University's satellite phone. Per Danette, they will be getting evacuated by boat to a neighboring island this weekend.
Our family is all coming together to help with getting them back home to Texas. It costs them approximately $2500 for the 4 of them to fly to Dominica. Our goal is to help raise money for the flight back home.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you from the bottom of hearts. We are so grateful all 4 of them are alive and safe. Now we just have to get them back HOME to TEXAS!
