Turks and Caicos was hit hard by Hurricane Irma. Many people lost everything they've worked so hard for. The country's main source of income is tourism...why? Because of the beauty by nature, the turquoise waters, the marine life and most of all, the people.
The storm hit all of our islands and made shambles of many homes and many lives. All of these lives make a vacation the best it can be. The people of the Turks and Caicos Islands are genuine, have the best hearts and want to please everyone. They're all amazing.
If you've visited these awesome islands, they need your help now. They need things like water, tarps, construction supplies, roofing material, money to rebuild the life that they had, just better and stronger.
We're Janine Popick and John Hingley and we bought a house here 2 years ago because we just fell in love with the people and the environment. Six months ago we loved itso much we sold our spot in California to move to the best place in the world. If you've been there you know what we mean.
We will match 1 for 1 up to $10,000 so please give all you can! And if you are rich friends of ours you better come up with some $$ or we'll call you out ;-)
Seriously, we need these funds asap as Irma has passed and Maria is coming this week.
We will be purchasing tarps in bulk, plastic ties, stainless steel screws and nails, hammers, tools, netting, flashlights, batteries and other necessary items. We will be donating them to Red Cross and the Turks and Caicos catholic church.
Please see it in your hearts to give what you can. John and I will be purchasing what we know the people of the islands need and assure that 100% gets to the people that need it the most.
Please do your best, they are relying on you and so are we!
