Erica's San Francisco Return

Our dear friend Erica has found herself in quite the predicament.  After attending her cousin's wedding in St. Maarten, she was still on the island when Hurricane Irma hit. And man did she hit hard. First and foremost, Erica is well and in good spirits! Knowing Erica she is probably keeping the distressed tourists entertained with her Seinfeld references and bountiful movie quotes. 

Unfortunately, the island is in ruins and the airport has been destroyed and they are predicting the hotel guests will be on the island for another 3-4 weeks. This means another 4 weeks without pay from her physical therapy job while her bills pile up. If you live in San Francisco (especially if you are in healthcare, oy) you understand the stress this is putting on Erica.  So here we are, asking her friends to help a girl out. If we can get her rent and utilities covered that would be an incredible gift for her to return to! 

*We hope this does not minimize the victims in Houston and in the Carribean who have lost far more than a flight home to the United States. But when you are feeling helpless while your best friend is trapped on an island in a windowless conference room, you take to the internet and find her people who feel the same way. Any little bit helps <3
