Relief & Recovery After Hurricane Dorian

Sep 02, 2019

The outpouring of immediate love and support for the Bahamas has been overwhelmingly beautiful and we cannot be thankful enough. We greatly appreciate each and every one of you. We were very fortunate not to have been in the path of Hurricane Dorian but our neighbors need us. Together we can help those in the Abacos and Grand Bahamas rebuild. Many of you have inquired on how to contribute to the relief and recovery.

There is an excellent list of relief organizations available from the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism. We are working with a number of these organizations. There is also a privately organized group of movers and shakers who are leaders in the community called HeadKnowles. They have contributed significantly to past natural disasters and are doing an incredible job today. There are more details about them on their Go Fund Me page. We have donated to them in cash, and we are working with them on housing relief workers and evacuees. They act intelligently and quickly, making substantial strides in the relief efforts.
