Turks and Caicos Rebuilding Fund

$61,048 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 152 people in 5 months
This week Turks and Caicos was hit by hurricane Irma, the largest cat 5 storm in recent history.  Many of us were lucky enough to have homes and businesses left intact, but so many weren't.

Immediate aid is needed to secure and re-build homes that were flooded or devastated by the storm. 

Spearheaded by Habitat Construction and Domino Creative, we are working to get building supplies on island and into the hands that need them as soon as possible. We encourage the design and building community to join us.

As we work on shipping logistics we may be able to take donations other than money, but right now we're focusing all donations on securing, shipping and utilizing building materials. 

If you call the Turks and Caicos your home, then we ask you to help your neighbors, and if you visit or vacation there, I'm sure you've said more than once "it's the people that make the place". These people need you now. 

Please note that we are not a charitable organization with 501 c3 status so we can't provide a receipt for US tax deduction purposes. We're just a group of friends trying to put your gifts to good use.

Hi All,

So we have great news. After meeting our original goal of $50k, we have been able to purchase not the expected 20 ft container, but a full 40 ft one! That means twice as many people will be helped AND we'll be re-purposing the container to be used as a school classroom for one of the outer islands.

BUT it also means we need a bit more money to reach our expanded goals. We've adjusted our goal to $75k so if you've thought about giving and kinda forgot that Turks still needs you please donate now.

We'll also be in touch in the next few weeks with opportunities for you to actually volunteer your time.

All our best,
Habitat Construction, Domino Creative, and friends

HI Friends,

We're really thrilled to report we've beaten our goal of $50k!

Due to the rapid succession of storms we have not yet been able to ship down our container, so any further contributions would still be incredibly appreciated.

I'm also happy to report that we're partnering with the Salvation Army to help with logistics and identification of need, which we know is substantial.

Praying everyone survived Maria unscathed.

Best,
Domino Creative and Habitat Construction

Hi Friends,

We wanted to give you an update on our fundraising. To date we have collected more than $41k and with your help will be able to reach our goal of $50k!

Members of our own design community, including Coast Architects and Design Studio have joined the effort and many have expressed interest in lending their support. So many private citizens, friends, and clients have contributed that we can’t name you all but we’re incredibly grateful.

This week we applied for a duty waiver from the Turks and Caicos Department of Disaster Management & Emergencies in order to see as much of the funds as possible go directly to the supplies in need. Our partners in shipping, Caicos Caribbean Line and Cairsea have already generously agreed to waive their fees in order to see money go to where it is most needed.

Once we secure duty clearance, we will be able to final our order and get our container down to Turks. Our purchases will include but not be limited to: wind and water shield roofing membrane, tar paper, pressure treated plywood and lumber, roofing shingles, sheet rock and generators. Habitat’s team has already been working day and night toward the clean-up effort but these much-needed supplies will be the fortification we need to do the most good.

Thank you everyone for your generosity. We’ll keep you posted.

-Domino Creative and Habitat Construction
