$47,965 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 165 people in 14 months
Hurricane IRMA passed over St Barths on September 6. The category 5 winds and associated storm surge damaged many homes.

The hardest hit were those residents living in older homes, some of which had been passed down for generations, and many of which were not insured.

These people are not the wealthy owners of multi-million dollar villas. Instead they are the school teachers, firemen, bakers, chefs, shop keepers, maids, waitreses and others who keep St Barths running for our enjoyment.

These people have specific and urgent needs, which will change over time - moving from chain saws to clear property to tarps to cover damaged roofs, to basic clothing, to ovens and refrigerators so people can make their own food again.

This fund was created by sbhonline.com, an international community of people who are passionate about the people, local businesses and the unique culture of St Barths.

100% of the funds raised are going to supplies to rebuild the homes and businesses of St Barths.  We are purchasing essential supplies in the US (chain saws, tarps, gas cans, generators and related supplies), and paying to fly them down to St Barths for immediate distribution to relief workers. and residents

The people of the island need your help, fast. Please contribute whatever you can today, and forward information about the campaign to anyone who may be interested in making a donation.

Thanks to all of you who have made a donation to the #stbarthstrong campaign. We have raised $35,000, however that's well short of our goal. The residents of homes damaged by IRMA are in urgent need of tarps to cover damaged roofs, water purification products, and household items lost in the storm which were not insured. Please make a donation today, and share with like minded people.

Update on Thursday at 4pm.
25 boxes of gear have arrived at San Juan airport, containing chain saws and tarps for damaged roofs. We will deliver them to St Barths on Friday, via Tradewind Aviation (they are true heros). Please keep the donations coming, the officials managing the relief effort asked us for 100 chainsaws, and we are only 50% of the way to that goal.

Thank you to everyone who has made a donation in the first two days of the campaign. We have purchased chain saws, generators, sat phones, protein bars, and related gear. First shipment arrived via Tradewind relief flight on Tuesday. More supplies are being flown down on Wednesday, for Thursday delivery. We are meeting with government employees based at the airport organizing the rebuilding effort to determine what supplies to buy next, and how best to distribute them.

Thanks to Tradewind Aviation and WIMCO Villas for their enthusiastic support.
