Faragher-Kneipp rebuilding fund

$7,145 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 5 months
Our beloved Brodie, who grew up with us on Bowen Island, her lovely husband Joe, beautiful 3 and a half year old Marley, 9-month old Eve and Joe's momma Helen survived hurricane Irma. They have called Tortola, BVI home for most of their lives together, which has been devastated by the super-storm Irma. Their home, their businesses, their lives have been destroyed. 
They are on their way to Bowen Island where they have a community of family and friends. Their lives have been changed forever and their future remains uncertain.
Let's ease the pain of this tragedy for them.

Hello everyone, our dear little Caribbean family is packing up to leave Bowen Island today, heading back to their home on the BVI. They were originally planning to stay with family and friends here over Christmas, but with the glacial pace of rebuilding their home of Tortola, they’ve decided to head back to give their textile business the full attention it requires. Joe, who has been back since October has been on the ground working to get the business up and running, but there are still many obstacles including repeated flooding, broken windows, and mold. There is still no power, and likely will not be any until at least March. Sanitation and water are also ever-present issues.
They are so grateful for the donations and have used the funds towards a generator and sustaining their family with minimal to no income over the past and coming months. They also wanted to extend heir gratitude for all the warm clothing donations and assistance with housing that kept them cozy over the fall and into the winter months here.
The real work will begin when they arrive home as they attempt to revive their business. There is much work ahead. If any kind souls have more in them to give, they certainly could use a helping hand. This GoFundMe page remains open for donation with direct deposit to their account on a weekly basis.
Happy Holidays friends near and far!
