Vanessa Redwing | Hurricane Relief

Please help our sister Vanessa rebuild after Hurricane Irma destroyed her home in the Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands.  After seven tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan as a member of the civilian military in the NSA, Van decided to retire from war & peace keeping to live her dream as a restaurateur in the USVI.  

Irma swept through on Wednesday, leveled her home and she, like so many today, is homeless and sleeping in her car.  When she was given the all clear from Irma and Jose she went to her neighborhood restaurant Thirteen and salvaged as much as she could after the storm.
She located a generator, is using a cistern to capture rainwater and intends to serve other displaced locals meals, even though she is still living in her car.

We have established this campaign to alleviate fees, but she lost her entire home and contents, all personal belongings and still needs to rebuild and repair her restaurant.  She also needs to survive a year until the infrastructure has been rebuilt on Saint Thomas and the tourism industry can return.  

Please join us in helping this INCREDIBLE young woman by donating to Vanessa vs Irma today!
