Disaster Relief USVI & Puerto Rico

$2,400 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 16 months
****UPDATE**** I am giving 100% of the donations from this fund to USVI Saint Thomas and Yabucoa Puerto All Hands Program’s. I was lucky enough to receive a flight voucher so I do not require any funds for flights. Sooooo, NEW incentive. The person who gives the biggest single donation will receive an All Hands sweatshirt. So far, $200 is the largest! Looking forward to everyone’s help to raise funds for these awesome programs so they can continue to do the great work in response, recovery, and rebuilding. Thank you so much and please continue to share this with everyone! $1 or $2 donations can add up so fast and literally no amount is too small! Let’s help make these islands as beautiful as we know they can be!!****

Hi everyone, my name is Naomi Tomita. I am a 4th grade teacher working overseas on a U.S. Military Installation. I LOVE my job, but let's be honest, by the time summer rolls around, I AM SOOOOOO READY!! It's the perfect rest and relaxation to get me recharged for the next year. I am usually bumming around and just catching up on my favorite movies and TV shows. I am basically a sloth all summer. However, after some self-reflection, I realized how unproductive I have been summer after summer. This summer, I am changing that. Living overseas doesn't really offer opportunities to help fellow Americans during times of tragedy. So, I am taking it upon myself this summer to DO MORE. I have committed to volunteering 2 weeks in the United States Virgin Islands and 2 weeks in Puerto Rico to help with recovery/rebuilding efforts that have been going on. I have never done a Go Fund Me before, but I am hoping that those of you who are not able to give your own time, might be able to help support me to fulfill my time. I am trying to raise the cost of my flights and stay for USVI and PR. Anything raised beyond that will be donated to the organization I am volunteering with, All Hands and Hearts. If you look on www.charitywatch.org or www.charitynavigator.org you will see how highly rated they are, which is why I elected to work with them. Any amount you are willing to donate for my cause will be greatly appreciated. I can't wait for the productive summer I have ahead. Feel free to share this page and pass along to anyone you think might want to contribute! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! xoxo
