Rebuilding after Hurricanes

With recent Hurricane Irma and Maria, my good friend Ital and his mother Margaret from Salt Pond, St. John, USVI have both completely lost their houses. This is a photo Ital took of what was his house.  The island is without electricity and running water and it will take months before it returns.

Ital is considered the Culture Bearer in the Virgin Islands. He has devoted his life to the arts, music, herbal medicine and the environment. He serves his community through education and music and teaches the children of the Virgin Islands and abroad at Environmental Education centers and schools. He is an acclaimed Craftsman and creates arts and crafts from the gifts of nature.

I have many friends that I know would like to help an individual and know that the money they donate goes directly to them. Please share a little to help them get needed food, water and shelter. Money raised will go towards them rebuilding their lives.
