Relief Fund for Cullen's in St John

This past April, Eileen, John and their two dogs left their home of 50 years on Long Island and relocated to St. John in the Virgin Islands. They said good bye to family, friends  to start a new venture -- running a Bed & Breakfast on this lush Caribbean island.

What they couldn't have predicted, was that Hurricane Irma would turn the island upside down, literally. Homes, boats and businesses have been decimated.  The island is in major disarray with no power and little WiFi. Power is estimated not to return to St. John for several more months.

Because of all this, the island is not able to support tourism for at least 6 months, possibly even up to a year. This is how Eileen and John make their living! Folks who have upcoming
reservations want refunds 

 Eileen and John need us --The money raised will  help them keep their B&B. And keep them going during this time.
