Hurricane Dorian stalled over Grand Bahama for a unprecedented 40 hours destroying many parts of Freeport. These are the locations of the family homes, vehicles and possessions of the fly fishing guides and other members of staff that make up the sportfishing business of H2O Bonefishing.
Greg Vincent and Jason Franklin from The Island Of Grand Bahama and managing partners of h2O Bonefishing are reaching out to the many thousands of sportsmen and women who have enjoyed the incredible fishing here on the island over the years. And to share this cause with other anglers who we hope will in the future visit this wonderful island we call Home.
Our goal is to help provide the means to restore the lives and help regenerate a future for those staff members and associates of h2O Bonefishing most affected by this record breaking storm. Fund money is to go directly to staff members who require assistance in rebuilding their homes and replacing possessions lost due to hurricane Dorian. Those staff members will be the ultimate beneficiaries with the plan to send electronically from the fund account. In full disclosure and transparency there will also likely be other amounts to be distributed through the h2o Bonefishing account for those that cannot receive monies electronically.
It is not only the homes and possessions that need rebuilding but also livelihoods, especially over the next several months where a constantly growing pile of Bills replaces a pay check.
These individuals and their families need help and providing aid in funding is the quickest and most direct way anyone can contribute.
There are things that can never be replaced in this disaster and we salute the journey of those that are no longer with us.
Our most sincere thanks,
Greg Vincent and Jason Franklin.
Managing partners, H2O Bonefishing
