Hurricane Relief for Marine Veteran

On Monday, one of our very close friends in Jacksonville, Harley, a father and Marine veteran, experienced every Floridan's worst nightmare after waking up to find his entire townhouse flooded from Hurricane Irma.

Harley's townhouse is located on a river in Jacksonville and suffered several feet of water damage, destroying all of his furniture and belongings, including everything in his 6-year-old son's room (toys, blankets, books, etc.). His car was also seriously damaged in the flood and he will probably need a new one. He is currently displaced and staying with friends and family, unsure as to if or when he will be able to return home. Through it all, however, Harley has been tirelessly and selflessly helping neighbors and others nearby who were affected by the flooding in Jacksonville.

All of the proceeds will go straight to Harley so he can get back on his feet and begin rebuilding his life right away. The money will be spent on replacing or reparing things him and his son lost, such as clothes, shoes, furniture, toys, books, and his car.  It will also go toward any living expenses he may need during this time while he is unable to work. 

ANY donation helps, whether it's $1 or $100, or even just spreading the word. Every little bit will mean the world to him and his son.

Thank you SO much in advance to everyone who donates and/or helps spread the word about this! We will continue to post updates.

How we know Harley:
Harley and my husband William grew up together in a small town outside of Jacksonville. He is William's best friend and was the Best Man in our wedding. Because we live in Tampa and can't physically be in Jacksonville to help, we hope to raise money that can help him in other ways.
