Help Stevie and Susan Start Over

Stevie, her 2 year old son Luca, and her mom, Susan have survived Hurricane Irma in Tortola. They need to be evacuated, as they have no home. Currently, the airports in the area are unusable, and it is unclear how soon they can get out, but they need access to funds to make their next move.

We all love Stevie, and want her to feel secure and safe for her family. Airline tickets will likely very costly, and who knows how much they will need just to get to the airports, plus supplies. Funds may also need to be spent on hotel stays, to get her to her final destination. The goal will be adjusted accordingly.

Luca is experiencing extreme post traumatic stress, and Stevie's number one goal is make sure her baby is safe. 

Please help. Financial security is one of the greatest forms of help in a crisis like this.

My name is Mandy, I live in Long Beach, CA. I met Stevie many years ago, when we worked together. I will likely be the one who books the airline tickets and hotels for Stevie and her family, unless Stevie is able to take control herself.

Update:  Stevie, Susan, and Luca are safely in PR at the moment, awaiting the next part of their evacuation. They will be flying to the mainland on Friday, which happens to also be Stevie's birthday. 

Stevie and Susan are now facing the daunting task of rebuilding their lives. Everyone has be incredibly generous, thus far, but if we can try another go at sharing, every little bit of fundraising will only help them have a bit more stability as they begin to search for jobs to help support them. 

Thank you.
