Help for Amber and Ryan post Irma

Ryan and Amber have come into difficult times since hurricane Irma and they will not ask for help themselves.

We are beyond grateful that they have a place to go home to after Irma and feel deeply saddened for those who were not as lucky

They have been living off a single salary income for a family of 3 for a month now and are financially struggling.

They have been house hunting for months now and knew they needed to move out by the end of their lease in October. They have been applying for housing assistance and financial assistance, and have been looking for a home that they can afford.

They are now obligated to pay a month to month rate that is $300 more then their regular rate. Their new rent for the next 3 months (max amount of time they are allowing them to stay) is $1,600/month.

Since the hurricane, they have maxed out their credit cards to buy supplies and non perishable goods for the hurricane and fuel for Koa and Amber to evacuate. Once their power was restored, they had to throw away the contents of their freezer and refrigerator because everything went bad.

Thankfully the boat has survived Irma's wrath, but due to the past 2 weeks of not being able to run, there is no income being generated.  And with people focusing on clean up who knows how long it will take for their dive business to bounce back.

Your donations will help them to pay bills, keep a roof over their heads, and be able to buy food during this time of struggle.

Any little bit will help.... 10.00, 20.00, what every you can afford will add up and help.

I wish that I could be there with her and help her physically but can't so I hope that you will all show them how much we love and support them.
