Hurricane Irma. Lost EVERYTHING

Hi my name is Ryan Macauley and live in Key West, FL. This campaign is to help me get back on my feet after Hurricane Irma! Ive lived in the keys for years and I never in my life thought that I would be in this position but I am. I live in Key West and I spoke to the regional manager for my property management company and was told that my apartment is uninhabitable. I have literally lost everything but the clothes in my suitcase I evacuated with. I did not have renters insurance so I don't have a check coming to replace my belongings. As much as I hate to do it, I am reaching out for help to get me back on my feet. Literally nothing is too small. I appreciate each and every one who has reached out to me to make sure I was ok.
I'm asking for 3,000 to cover my expenses, and basic needs to start my life over. But any additional money I plan to donate to people walking in the same shoes as I am. We are all #ONEHUMANFAMILY
It's the little things you don't think of like pillows, sheets, your bed, towels that often are forgotten. I will get through this but it will take some time to get back on my feet. As some me who works in the service industry, I rely on tourists to pay my bills. It seems as though the keys won't be allowing tourists for quite some time. Thank you all so much for whatever you can contribute to help me out. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart
