Meg & Myk's Hurricane Irma support

My sister-in-law Megs, her husband Myk and their 8 month baby, like so many others, have been left with literally nothing after Irma, a Category 5 hurricane, ripped through the British Virgin Islands and tore up their home while they huddled together in a bathroom.  We are thankful beyond words that they are safe.  A hardworking couple, both worked in the yachting industry, which has been utterly devastated, so it may be some time before they can return to work.  Any support that anyone is able to offer to help rebuild their lives will go a very very long way in this terribly difficult time.
They need to replace everything for their baby plus need to buy the usual daily things such as nappies (diapers) etc.  They need to replace what they lost in their rented home.  With the situation as it is, receiving physical things will be difficult hence the request for funds which they can use on the ground there.  As you can imagine they need funds as soon as possible.
