I came up with the idea to donate 1,500,000 Hilton points to volunteers being deployed to Virginia and the Carolinas for Hurricane Florence.

I wanted to use the points to help volunteers and first responders, but didn’t know exactly who to help. I made a post on the Facebook group “TPG lounge" and the responses were overwhelming. 

From the recommendations of a lot of members who were effected first hand by Harvey I reached out to the Louisiana Cajun Navy.

The vast majority of the LA Cajun Navy bore the volunteer expenses themselves. Many use their vacation/comp/sick time to help out in a time of need. Most hotels/motels are already filled with people displaced from the storm.

It looked like I would be able to get people about 60 room nights. With additional one off donations from the TPG Lounge that donation grew to 80 nights.

I reached out to Hilton Hotels & Resorts and they not only agreed to match my 1,500,000 donation. They agreed to match donations up to 100 million points.

These donations will can provide up to 10,000 nights/rooms for people who need them, and valued at around 2 million dollars.

If you have Hilton points to donate please donate  to the following.  To donate please click the link with charity of your choice
Cajun Navy 
Team Rubicon 
American Red Cross 

I created this page because many people without Hilton Points also want to help. 

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE AND DON'T HAVE POINTS, PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A CASH DONATION TO THIS GO FUND ME CAMPAIGN.  100% OF  ALL CAMPAIGN FUNDS WILL BE USED DIRECTLY TO HOUSE EVACUEES

Originally the plan was to house as many volunteers as possible.  Now would love to house as many evacuees or people who have lost homes.

If you or anyone you know need lodging don't hesitate to reach out.  This page is for everyone.

Even if you cant donate please share the post so we can get as many people lodging as possible.

For those of you inland please consider donating extra rooms in your house to strangers.  People have already lost everything.

A lot of volunteers are still organizing currently and will be needing lodging in upcoming days

Lets continue to help the people helping us

Originally coming up with the idea to donate Hotel points has led to so much more. Have been able to personally House over 150 first responders.

It also led to direct involvement in the relief efforts.

Additional funds raised will go to fuel for the teams to respond to Matthew
