The Story

Sponsor a Tarp 
For just $10 you can secure a roof on a home in the US Virgin Islands

Hurricane Irma took the roofs off of many homes in the US Virgin Island on September 6th! There is currently a shortage of available tarps in the region to help with temporary repair of homes! We have consistently heard the same message from residents, there aren't enough tarps! 

Now with your help we can change that! We have secured an available shipment of 1,600 heavy duty tarps which will be shipped to our freight forwarding company in Miami to stage for container shipping as soon as we can get them there! 

The total cost of the tarps is $13,149, please see the attached quote for transparency. The remaining money will be collected to cover shipping container costs!

Price per tarp with shipping to Miami is $8.21! Add $1.79 for cargo ship transport and you can help to secure a roof for a home in St Thomas!
