The Worst Hurricane In Decades
Hurricane Irma is a potentially catastrophic category 5 hurricane that will bring life-threatening wind storm surge, and rainfall hazards to areas including the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the southeastern Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos, and portions of Haiti.
Many of these areas are still badly damaged from prior tragedies leaving them extremely vulnerable for potential devastation by the impact of these hurricanes, including:
- Dominican Republic
- Puerto Rico
- Turks and Caicos
- St. Martin
- St. Barts
- British Virgin Islands
This fund will ensure that these areas are not forgotten, and will provide relief to survivors through the networks of internationally recognized and vetted charities active in these areas.
All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts for Hurricane Irma.
All donations to this fund will support relief efforts for Hurricane Irma and Maria. The fund's initial focus will be immediate needs for survivors such as food, clean water, fuel, and shelter. After initial relief has been provided, remaining funds will be used to support long-term recovery efforts in conjunction with local vetted organizations in those countries, including but not limited to SOS Children's Villages, and the David Ortiz Children's Fund.
