Get me to St. Thomas

Hurricane Irma destroyed my island and my family's house. My folks are too old and not in the best of health and clearing the debris from the property and making major repairs to the house is beyond their means. Also, they're running out of food and there's nowhere to get more. Help me get a plane ticket to bring them some much needed supplies and begin the rebuilding process. $1500 will cover my plane ticket and a suitcase full of freeze-dried food (needs to be lightweight since I'll probably have to hike it up a mountainside covered in debris to get it to them), any leftover funds will go toward supplies to make the house habitable again. Time is of the essence, given the food shortage, so I'm trying to book this ticket within the next day.
