The Story

My name is Scott Bernstein and I've started this campaign to help raise funds for a couple who had their lives turned upside down. For the full story on Kate and Joel head here. I'll explain some of the basics below:

On September 6, Hurricane Irma tore through the Caribbean and devastated everything in its path including St. John. It's now six months later and many of those who lived on St. John are still trying to recover from having their lives torn apart including Kate Farrington and Joel Walton. Kate and Joel are a couple I met after attending the Concert For Island Relief at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on January 6. Following the benefit concert, the pair told me their story of riding out Irma, losing many of their possessions, making a treacherous journey to Puerto Rico and finally escaping to the mainland. I was heartbroken to hear of their experience and mentioned it within my review.

The goal of this YouCaring is to raise the approximately $3,000 (or as much of that figure as we can) the couple spent right after the storm to evacuate from St. John. While there are countless people who like Kate and Joel are still recovering from the traumatic and destructive storm, this is your chance to help on a micro level. Let’s get these two incredible people and live music fans back on their feet. Any monies raised above the $3,000 will be split with St. John's Island Health & Wellness Center.

Again, to read about Kate and Joel's experience, their backgrounds and how the money will be used, head here.
