We guarantee that 100% of these funds will go directly to the residents of Green Turtle Cay and the long road ahead to rebuild.
On September 1, 2019 Hurricane Dorian came barreling through Green Turtle Cay as a Category 5 hurricane. We received a single call this morning via satellite phone from a friend on the island who said they have experienced total devastation, roads are impassable, people are trapped in collapsed homes and the GTC primary school shelter failed. In efforts to not drain the phone battery that was all he could share at this time. We have not had any further communication but promise to post updates on this page as we hear more.
In addition to monetary donations, we will be sharing drop-off locations for items that are needed as soon as we can get planes on the ground and the seas calm enough to get boats to the island.
We guarantee that 100% of these funds will go directly to the residents of Green Turtle Cay and the long road ahead to rebuild. We know there are so many people that hold this special island in their hearts and now it is our turn to show them how loved they are and that we will be with them every step of the way. All donations are run through Green Turtle Cay Foundation which is a 501c3 Charity so all your generosity will be tax deductible.
The money raised through this fund will be used for generators, fuel, tarps, roofing materials, food, water, personal hygiene products, diapers, formula, pet supplies, paper products, pillows, blankets, sleeping bags, air mattresses, duct tape, extension cords, box fans, batteries, flashlights, cleaning supplies, first aid kits, tools, garbage bags, etc.
