Rebuilding Lives after Irma

Hey all! Danielle in Florida here! This campaign is for my Husband’s family, who are currently on the island of St. Martin. We are not a family to ask for help. But now we need it now more than ever. My Father in law, Mother in law, Sister in law, Brother in law and two nephews need help. They live on the island of St. Martin that hurricane Irma destroyed. We waited 27 hours to find out if they were alive. The island suffered 95% destruction, they must go to water and food distribution sites to get basic essentials to stay alive. Their home was too severely damaged to live in, they have no jobs. They won’t have any for a while. They have lost everything but their lives. Lost everything they have invested in. They will have to leave with only suitcases. The civil situation on the island has gotten better, but is still not safe for them and their children . They want to come to FL to be with family and attempt to regain a life of normalcy. We can not provide financially what they will need. The funds from this go fund me will go towards finding them a place to stay, basic necessities, a small vehicle and establish a new life. The withdrawal plan is, if possible, we will set up a residence for them in advance for when they get here, if they must do it themselves when they arrive the funds will be transferred to them to be able to take care of it and anything else they will need to re-establish their life. We wish we could provide everything they need on our own, but financially we can not, so we ask the public for your help in restoring a bit of “normal” to our family’s life. Thank you in advance - any help is so very appreciated! Thank you so much for all the love, support and kind words. Friends helping friends and stranger helping strangers. We will be forever grateful for each and every persons help.
