We are a small island community and supplies cannot be easily transported or delivered so time is of the essence.
The people and community within our beloved BVI have a huge challenge ahead of us, but we know we will rise. This campaign is a small start to help restore the islands' heart beat.
All money raised will go directly to the islands. To be clear, the funds will come to me, and then my family on the island of Tortola will assist and distribute the purchased goods.
To date we have partnered with a small private charter company and a food wholesaler, both of which are out of St. Croix, to deliver necessities to the small communities that have not yet received relief. With many of the sea and air ports still unopen, this access is critical. We are and will continue to deliver basic needs: water, diapers, baby formula, canned goods, MRE's, feminine products , dog/cat food, and non-perishable goods.
You can see a few of our pictures in our updates as we loaded our first launch with the initial $3,000 of goods that was collected and used to purchase and deliver to Tortola and Virgin Gorda.
Even more amazing...our initial money raised not only delivered these goods, but assisted 11 people who needed to evacuate.
You're continued support will help
us to deliver what is now requested by most people on island : batteries, flashlights, head-lamps, tarps, small
portable generators, and plywood.
Timing and funding are "now" as most of the recovery seems to lay upon the citizens of the BVI.
Please assist in any way you can, no matter how small or large. Together, we can help and rebuild our beloved home. #bvistrong
