Power the Island of St. Thomas

Hurricane Irma destroyed 90% of the island of St. Thomas power lines and 80% of its transformers, leaving the island out of power for quite some time.  Your generous donation will be used to purchase medium-sized emergency portable generators that can power multiple survival appliances, such as refrigerators, sump pumps, and furnaces.  With power generation, the Doute family and many others will have running water, can flush toilets, refrigerate food and take care some of their basic needs. With your help, we can ease some of the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma!   Additionally, through your contributions, we are able to send power cords, batteries, battery packs, and cover the shipping cost. 
Thank you in advance for taking time to support this cause. Your donations are greatly appreciated!  Our goal is to ship the first set of generators on Thursday, September 21,  2017 and continue to ship as many as we can to help her our family and friends on the Island. Thank you!
