Hurricanes Irma and Maria were a couple of the biggest storms to hit the Caribbean…ever. I’m sure most of us have seen photos of the complete devastation of the places and people we care so much about.
The islands of St. Maarten/St. Martin, Antigua & Barbuda, Anguilla, St. Barths, British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and Cuba have all been impacted. If you would like to help support the places that you love, please find the relief support link below that is closest to your heart.
Together with the Caribbean Soul Trekkers, we have come up with a list that lets you support both individual small business and larger relief programs.
If one of your fondest memories is dancing the night away at Elvis’ Beach Bar on Anguilla, you can support their rebuild. If you sail to the Bitter End Yacht Club every year and want to help the now-out-of-work staff that you love so much, you can donate below. If you are a member of Kenny Chensey’s No Shoes Nation and want to support his efforts to rebuild St. John and St. Thomas, you can find a support link below.
We wanted to get this list up as fast as possible. That’s why you don’t see relief support for St. Barths, Puerto Rico, or Cuba (maybe issues with Cuba support). This support list will be constantly growing as new legit relief programs and funds are created or found.
If you have a Caribbean business or community that has been impacted by Hurricanes Irma or Maria and has a relief fund, please message me on the RumShopRyan Facebook page. If it’s a legit fund, I will add it to the list.
ANTIGUA & BARBUDA
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
US VIRGIN ISLANDS
ST MARTIN / ST MAARTEN
TURKS & CAICOS
Thank you! Again, if you find any other legit funding pages for the Caribbean islands affected by Irma, let me know.
Thank you for all your support!
