Un-Forgotten Coast Relief Fund

My name is Steven and I am one of the proud few to share in a claim of Gulf County as the home of my family. Gulf County, just like its neighboring counties up and down the coast of the Panhandle, has always welcomed visitors with open arms.  The people of this region are hardworking men and women; most of whom have spent their lives catering to the needs of the millions of visitors who are fortunate enough to spend a week or two each year in Paradise.  If you are lucky enough to have been exposed to the gentleness and hospitality that these great people extend to visitors, this is your chance to show these amazing folks how much they are appreciated:

Please help me fund the clean-up of the affected areas and supplying of necessities for the 
people of the Forgotten Coast!  This fund is being established to help all those in need after the devastation that Hurricane Michael is going to cause. It is imperative that we generate as much as possible as quickly as possible, but disaster recovery is unfortunately more of a marathon, and we will work to insure that we leave no need untreated until every last red cent given by you is spent.  I will be sharing pictures and updates to each person who gives to this fund, and I will also be completely transparent with the raising and use of funds.  I am currently designing shirts that can be sold as an incentive to raise funds (proofs to follow shortly).  Thoughts and prayers are certainly helpful, but let's show these great people how much we care for them and their families!
