Matthew & Tanji Survival Fund

Matt, Tanji (Williams), Jagger and Lyric Willey need your help. Their home on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands was devastated by Hurricane Irma and they need help to survive.  Matt's tools were destroyed in the storm but he needs them to rebuild. They have some money saved but not enough to sustain them for any length of time.  There is currently no way off the island and power may not be restored for months.

We are asking for monetary donations or extra tools if you have them. Money donated will help get Tanji and the kids to safety and will help Matt rebuild their life.

Please help!

Required info:
I am Elizabeth Willey, Matt's sister, from St. Louis, Missouri. Money/tools raised will be given to Matt & Tanji. I am responsible for the withdrawal of funds in my name and the delivery to Matt and Tanji outside of GoFundMe.

If you have any questions or would like to help in another way please feel free to contact me.
