LOVE for the LOCALS of Hope Town Holiday Giving


"Carolina Coastal Community has teamed up with to help create monetary blessings this holiday season for the locals of Hope Town. So many of the people we love who drive our boats, cook our meals, sell our homes, manage our properties, rent our golf carts, drive our ferries, clean our homes, serve our drinks have lost so much.

Carolina Coastal Community, also known as 3C, located in the heart of North Carolina and was founded by second home owners of Elbow Cay, Jennifer and Brian Kinn. They fell in love with Hope Town a couple years ago, the uniqueness, the beauty of the island, and mostly the people of the island. They want to bless those who have blessed them.

Jen and Brian believe in the power of a team, they want to make this holiday magical for so many who lost everything. They reached out to Bahama Spirit and together want to make a difference. It's important that during difficult times we all join together and work together.

Bahama Spirit is compiled of several groups of families in the North/Central Florida area who have been visiting the Bahamas since the 1960s. After realizing the devastation that came after Hurricane Dorian, they wanted to have a way to directly help the friends and families who we have become close with throughout the years. With all this passion from 3C and Bahama Spirit, how could we all not work together? We ask you to help us make a difference.

Our mission in this project is accept your donations either through Paypal or Go Fund Me. For each donation, we ask you leave a note of who you are donating to. 3C will compile a total for each family and each donation received. Then, at Christmas, there will be a list of checks given out to those who received donations. We are looking for small to large donations. Right now those locals who have lost everything need funding, love, and support. This is a great way to help us make a difference this holiday season.

How can you help us: Donate to a family or individual in Hope Town and share our mission with all who love this community. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to bless the locals who survived hurricane Dorian who work night and day to figure out what is next. Most are working frantically to make the island beautiful again. It's our duty to help them back. So many are NOT getting paid and yet they continue to work with resilience and compassion because this is their home. #HopeTownBahamas
