For Victims of Irma in Barbuda

If you haven't already heard, Antigua's sister island, Barbuda got completely devastated by Hurricane Irma. Over 90% of the houses are severely damaged, with about 60% of the population estimated to be homeless. Public facilities like the police station, hospital, airport and school are destroyed. All of their food, water and other supplies need to be sent over to them by boat from Antigua. These people need new houses, which the government of Antigua somehow needs to find the money for. Unlike America, they don't have an emergency organization with the ability to pump them millions of dollars. It's estimated that it'll cost at least $150 million to repair the island. Please help me help make a difference by donating what you can. The money you donate here will be directly sent to Antigua and Barbuda's Government to aid them in their endeavors to keep the people of Barbuda safe and well, and to rebuild their home. Additionally, Hurricane José may be hitting Antigua and Barbuda this weekend. We don't have the infrastructure to withstand these hurricanes and we certainly don't have the money to rebuild on our own. Please donate what you can to help. ❤️❤️❤️
