Help Marathon & The Keys After Irma

America's paradise, the Florida Keys, took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma this past weekend. An island chain connected by 42 bridges and hanging off the southern tip of Florida, the Keys were devastated by Irma, particularly the middle and lower Keys - the stretch from Marathon to Key West. Lives were lost, homes and businesses destroyed, and the breathtaking islands were left looking like a war zone.

Having been raised on Marathon, this place holds a special place in my heart. Florida Keys people are strong people, but it will still take years to fully recover. With your support we can help families get back on their feet quicker.

All funds donated will go directly to the community and piecing its beauty back together - food, supplies, building materials, etc. We are en route to help in the recovery process and will deliver it to the appropriate local parties and organizations. Every little bit helps. If you can't donate, I ask that you consider spending your next vacation in the Florida Keys. Not only will you be blown away by paradise, you'll directly help a community in need. It will carve out a special place in your heart, just like it's done to everyone else who lives there and has visited.

Thank you for your help. It means the world.
