Two Mamas in the US VI #IslandMamas

My two sisters who have made their home in St. Thomas, the US Virgin Islands for the last 34 years, have been devastated by the storms. Hurricanes Irma and Maria have broken the Island’s heart and soul.
Sisters Eileen and Deirdre are both out of work. Their places of employment, physical therapy clinic,  hotel are destroyed. Between them, there are five children, one grandchild and one grandchild on the way.
Their living situation is dire. You have seen it on tv. No power. No services. Long lines. I see my family desperate to get them help, find them a generator, get a care package to them and it breaks my heart. I would like to help them with the bare essentials, ice, gas, food, rent, the very basics of life that we all take for granted. Thank you for your time and support. All money received will go to our account in San Jose and will be sent directly to the sisters to use as they rebuild their lives.
