Thank you for visiting this campaign. My husband and I are regular visitors to the island of Anguilla for the past 13 years. At first we went for the pure beauty of the island but now we go back because of the AMAZING people that live on the island. Many of them have become our friends and we care about them as if they were family. It is devastating to see and hear what Hurricane Irma has done to the Caribbean and especially to Anguilla.
We are hoping that those who have traveled to Anguilla over the years have had the chance to take a taxi ride with Christian Webster. He is a wonderful man who has lost not only his home and personal belongings, but his main source of income since there are no tourists needing a taxi ride to a beautiful hotel or delicious restaurant. When I finally was able to communicate with Christian this week he broke down in tears as he said he was down to a bottle of water and was occupying a small room in his house that wasn't flooded or damaged and he is unable to pay his bills going forward. He promises that any additional monies that we raise will be used to help other friends and neighbors in need. This account has been set up so that all donations collected will be sent directly to Christian. PLEASE help to lift Christian's spirits and show him the love that he has showed all of us.
It is going to take a lot of time and effort to rebuild this treasured island but it will get rebuilt and we will all return. The amazing people of Anguilla are beautifully spirited and resilient but they need us right now so anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your kindness in helping a dear friend. Unfortunately I am not on social media so anything you all can do to help spread the word and the love would be an absolute blessing!
With sincere appreciation,
