Hi, my name is Skyy John. I'm the creator and host of Tipsy Bartender. The Bahamas is where I was born and raised. My immediate family still lives there. Last week Hurricane Dorian tore through my homeland destroying everything in its path. The death toll is now 50 and rising. There are billions of dollars in damage. Many Bahamians now only own the clothes on their backs.
The Bahamas is not a wealthy nation with the means to rebuild. I am using Tipsy Bartender's social media reach to raise whatever money I can to help my people. I've started the ball rolling with a $25,000 donation. Please contribute whatever you can, even if it's just a dollar. Your money will be withdrawn by me and shared between the following organizations:
- $10,000 to The Bahamas Ranfurly Home for Kids http://www.ranfurlyhome.org/
- $10,000 to The Bahamas Children's Emergency Hostel https://bit.ly/2kzgvYm
- Remaining funds to The Bahamas Red Cross https://bahamasredcross.org
The Bahamas Red Cross currently has hundreds of people on the ground working to help the storm victims. The World Central Kitchen is feeding thousands of Hurricane Dorian survivors on a daily basis. The Bahamas Children's Emergency Hostel, and The Ranfurly Home for Kids, have taken numerous children left homeless by Hurricane Dorian.
Praying for you Bahamas!
