Lester Brown's House repair

I have started this gofundme for a friend in St. Thomas who lost his house and his boat (his primary means of employment) in Hurricine Irma. Lester is a great guy who always smiles and tries to help when the opportunity arises.  I have known Lester for more than 8 years and he has been a loyal and good friend. Instead of giving to an unknown charity with the possibility of the money not going to the locals of the USVI, I have decided to directly give to people I know and who I know need the money. The money will be used to repair his house, repair and rebuild his boat and survive until the Islands economy and infrastructure improve. Every little bit helps.
