Hi Folks many of you will remember me from my days as News Anchor with the Government Information Service as well as my many other pursuits. On this occasion I come before you with hands outstretched and with a broken heart. My heart is torn by the devastation of natures wrath. My home country of Dominica has been severly impacted by Tropical Storm Erika during the early morning of Thursday August 27th. Even while a total assesment has not been done, preliminary reports indicate that about 18 people are feared dead. Link roads throughout the island have been ravaged. The livelyhood of many is now no more. This fund is designed to raise some much needed EMERGENCY supplies to the areas most affected. Please give generously. The money will be used to purchase much needed food items and medication. If everyone of you donate at least $20 we will be well on our way of reaching our target of $200k. Again the money will be spent, by the respective village councils and Redcross who are in direct need of those affected most. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
