My name on Clarissa Carson, I currently live in California. Our dear friends, Carlos & Vero, lived in the Virgin Islands and fell victims to category 5 hurricane, Irma. Their house is uninhabitable after the storm where they had no safe place to go, except to ride it out inside. It is a miracle they both survived and even more so, the 6 days after. Sadly, they had to flee from St. Thomas with an hour's notice leaving everything they have built together, over the last 3 years, behind with only the back packs and clothes on their back. They had to leave because the once beautiful island we called paradise and they called home, is in complete chaos filled with death, robberies, lack of food and water and not to mention no power for months to come, if not longer. People are becoming desperate and resorting to violence that is beyond my realm of comprehension. Life in America's Paradise is over as we know it. They moved there from Mazatlan to work and build a new life together as newlyweds. They are both extremely hard workers and not a day would go by that one of them, if not both, didn't work. When I moved to St. Thomas they welcomed me with open arms and are honestly 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet. Carlos & Vero helped get us through some of the most confusing and hard times of our lives and now I'm asking you to atleast share this post and keep encouraging your friends to share. Anything helps. They are homeless in Puerto Rico and need to get back to the states safely. Thank you for your time. All donations are going directly to Carlos & Vero after the funds are deposited into my account due to fraud in the VI and unable to be put directly into their bank account. Carlos and Vero are now safe in Texas where they will begin to rebuild their life.
Praying for you two, Nicky and I love you !!
