On September 10, 2017 hurricane Irma hit the state of Florida and caused significant damage to Immokalee, Fl. As we walked our town of Immokalee and filmed the chaos Irma left behind we began to brainstorm on what we could possibly do in order to help our community on a larger scale. What we did next was ride around town until we found a family we felt needed assistance immediately. We met and sat down with Eustolia and her family. Eustolia's home was completely lost in the storm, and is now currently living in her neighbors living room (Anita) right next door, who also had significant damage done to her home. Eustolia is a single mother of 4. She has no way to earn money at this time because she has also lost her job. They have no where to go and have already filed for assitance but was not giving any information on how or when she will receive it. We have put together a short video documenting her story a bit better. We are asking for donations of any kind. Our goal is to raise enough to help her get back up on her feet until she figures out what she has to do next. The funds will be withdrawn from my personal account where I will be accompanied by Eustolia and another person present.
