The Story

Inspired by my husband who is down in St. Thomas working with FEMA, I hope to motivate as many people as I can to help contribute to the recovery effort. While I'm sure all of us wish we could be down there to help first hand, most us have full time jobs or families or other commitments that make picking up and leaving for a few weeks impossible. But we can't let that stop us from helping how we can. We have all seen the photos and reports of the destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Most of us can't imagine our home completely destroyed, our clothes strewn out in the yard, not being able to call our families to let them know we are ok, not being able to access basic medical care, much less knowing when we might be able to return to work again to support our families. We must help support these American families in need so they can recover and rebuild. Let's not let them feel abandoned by the rest of their country. Let's let them know how much we really do care!
