The Story

Hurricanes Irma and Maria have recently devastated the British Virgin Islands.  We appreciate the many expressions of concern from our guests, many of whom consider our Guana Island employees as family.  As a result of the hurricanes, the homes and lives our our employees have been greatly impacted.  We are putting all of our resources towards helping them to get on their feet, and have set up a special fund to help.  

Please make a donation so that, together, we can help Guana Island employees to rebuild their lives.  Every dollar donated will be matched by Guana Island, and will go directly towards Guana Island employees. Thank you!

Today is "Giving Tuesday," a global day of giving fueled by social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and following the shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the season in which many of us make our year-end or holiday gifts. 

This holiday season, please consider support for our Relief Fund for Guana Island Employees. We have almost reached our goal -- just $8,240 to go! 

Our heartfelt thanks to those who have already given. You are helping employees such as James Daley and his family. When the hurricane hit, they were living in a duplex. After their shutters and doors blew off, James sent his wife and kids downstairs but got pinned in one corner of the house. A tornado sucked him out of the house and he landed on broken glass, eventually needing surgery to remove the shards from his feet. They are now living downstairs, as the upstairs of their building is exposed and uninhabitable. He says that rebuilding will be a long, hard road, but he is grateful for the support of so many caring individuals. 

Again, thank you!

Your support has been tremendous and we are pleased to report that we  have raised over $35,000 for our staff. It comes during what has been a  very difficult month on Guana with the passing of one our most beloved  Guana family members, Lafleur Thompson. She lit up Guana with her smile  the last 17 years. As staff begin to heal, they’ve taken comfort in the  outpouring of messages from around the world which have been printed and  shared on our walls. It’s a reminder that they are not alone and people  care. We will rebuild and we look forward to sharing this journey with you
