St.Maarten was hit by Hurricane Irma very hard this Wednesday, Sept 6th leaving thousands of homes without roofs, over 13 buildings destroyed, families, seniors, animals on the streets. This Saturday Hurricane Jose will hit St.Maarten as well and we can only pray that it doesn't arrive with such intensity. For now, let's come together and support the St.Maarten community by raising funds to help them re-build their beautiful island.+ Read More

Hello everyone! As you know, my sister Piki is in St.Maarten working hard to help the St.Maarten community get back on its feet. These $1,620 funds collected thanks to YOU, now have a destination! My sister along with the St.Dominic High School, were able to collect the information, of 21 families in their community that lost EVERYTHING during hurricane Irma, Jose and Maria. My sister Piki was able to chat with these families and ask them what they need the most as of right now and she made an excel sheet with each family's needs. The excel sheet is now in the hands of my mother Maria Fernanda Chavarro whom lives in Miami, Florida and will be able to purchase these goods and ship them via Tropical Shipping to St.Maarten. Tropical Shipping offered to ship the goods with a 60% discount which is great! The funds collected in this GoFundme were transferred to my bank of america account and from there I transferred them to my Mom, so that she can make the purchases in Miami Florida. Our friends in Miami will help my mom with the logistics of purchasing, packing and transporting all the goods. Stay tuned for more and once again THANK YOU for your donation, these are the updates of what your donation is helping us do :)
