Remember that these are islands and people cannot simply walk or drive to food help or shelter or somewhere unaffected by the storm. Any mount helps as well as awareness. Please support. Please pass this along.
The United States Virgin Islands has suffered the worst Hurricane in decades. Hurricane Irma quickly grew to a category 5 and ravaged these three small islands in a matter of days. Over 100,000 U.S. Citizens born. On either St. Thomas, St. John, or St. Croix, and visiting from the continental US as well as many other tourists and guest on vacation have been stuck to ride out this natural disaster. Evacuation simply was not an option for island natives and plane prices have been reported to skyrocket to over $1,000-3,000 per ticket to leave days before the storm.
The U.S. Virgin Islands as well as Puerto Rico will need support in the upcoming weeks, months, and possibly years as we rescue and rebuild. Please any amount helps. Share and spread the word. Many Americans don't even know the USVI exists much less that it has suffered such a disaster.
