Hurricane relief help CJ Shell

Any one who knows my dad and has met CJ knows he has a giving heart and will help anyone to the best of his abilities. Well my dad was recently caught up in Hurricane Michael and lost everything.  I live all the way in Michigan and it is difficult watching/hearing him go through this. So I decided to help from afar and set up this gofundme! 

CJ lost his sailboat, which was his floating home, that he had personally restored.  The marina he made his home in was totally wiped out. 
HE IS SAFE!  which is the most important thing, but he is currently staying in a tent with other displaced boaters who lost their homes. He has not found his sailboat yet among the shored boats.  His car received substantial damage when fleeing the storm and is very beat up. So his transportation is extremely limited. 
At this point communication with him is still very spotty but it sounds like they have to travel 50 miles & pile as many people as possible into vehicles to run errands and get supplies. 
This money will be used to help CJ help others and himself with the daily items they'll need to get through this. Gas money to run for supplies, water, foods, tents, clothes, etc. 

If you can donate or share, it is all greatly appreciated and will be used in the best ways to help immediately some of the displaced loved ones and people affected by this devastation.
