Tedeschi Family Abaco Evacuation

My family has lost everything in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.  They are ALL evacuating from Abaco to other islands in the Bahamas.  With 80%-90% of the population of both Abaco and Grand Bahama being evacuated to Nassau and other Bahamian islands, shelters and housing will be limited.  They are leaving the islands with NOTHING! Simply the clothes on their backs.  My goal is to get them here to the United States with me.  As they are evacuated to islands that have open airports and international travel is available, we want to purchase airline tickets for them to come here.  This will be for my immediate family:  My mother, father, step-mother, two sisters and their husbands and children.  A total of 10 people.  Once here we will also need to help them get clothing and necessities.  I have offers of places for them to stay for the short term, but may need to look for long-term housing depending on what they decide to do.

If you are wanting to help my family specifically after this horrific event, this is the best way you can.  Please feel free to continue with donating supplies to the islands, it will help many other Bahamians, but your donation here will help my family directly.

Thank you for anything you are able to do.
