VG/BVI Irma Relief Initiative

Virgin Gorda is a Caribbean island in the British Virgin Islands. It's known for its friendly people, the Baths, a labyrinth of beachside boulders forming a series of pools and seawater-flooded grottoes. White-sand beaches nearby include Spring Bay and Devil’s Bay, plus Savannah Bay farther north. In the islands mountainous north, trails lead up Gorda Peak to a lookout tower with views of the scattered surrounding islets. Data Source: British Virgin Islands Tourism.

I was raised on Virgin Gorda throughout my infancy and teenage years. What makes Virgin Gorda special is the LOVE of One Community & One LOVE…Whether is giving your neighbor a fish from the fresh catch of the day or asking someone to pick up something while shopping in surrounding islands is just magical.

Virgin Gorda was recently devastated by the formation of tropical storm Harvey and category 5 hurricane Irma “Direct Hit”.

This initiative seeks to support the Virgin Gorda community and surrounding areas.

I am forever grateful for Virgin Gorda, enlisting life lesson’s that I continue to utilize throughout my life.

Funds from this endeavor will provide 1.Non Perishable items 2. Clothing 3.Psychological and counseling support - Additionally an itemized distribution of funds will be sent to each contributing donor- Detailing Who, What,Where,When,Why & How funds were allocated

 Your support is needed now, more than ever to restore a sense of normalcy for our beloved Virgin Gorda.
