As we all know, Cat 5 Irma was no joke! She ripped throught the Caribbean (among other places) like a woman scorned! She took people's lives, houses, boats, businesses, and other necessities. At the current time, I am cut off from social media communication as cell coverage comes and goes. When it is on, I make calls, but otherwise I am out helping people.
This Gofundme account is being set up so I can help myself and others here on Water Island, USVI. I will be withdrawing funds from this campaign to purchase items for use on Water Island for us to continue to survive. We are a very small close knit community (approximately 170 people) and need financial help. We have means to gas, generators, food and diesel but need money to purchase these items. We are getting relief from the USCG, FEMA and the US Marines but they must also help our neighboring islands of St. Thomas and St. John, which have a much larger population and would gain priority over us, plus whatever havoc Irma causes in the States.
The money raised here will go to supply the needs for the people of Water Island (including myself) to help us rise up and become a functioning community again. As money is raised, I will be updating each and everyone of you on what we are doing as we move forward. Please share, and thank you for considering donating. I guarantee your money will be used very wisely and very much appreciated!
