The Story

Hurricane Irma impacted the Turks and Caicos as a Category 5 storm. In its wake, destruction on a massive scale has resulted. Thankfully the majority of the damage is to roofing and exterior portions of structures. But many homes were destroyed as well. This has left many if not all of the islands citizens in desperate need of help. Food, supplies, work for some. Even the animals need help. This fund is to help provide for all of those in need! I am the owner of the weather page sponsoring this fundraiser. I enjoy helping people remain prepared for the weather, and now I want to help the people of this island. We are regular visitors and have many friends on the islands. We have not heard from some, but trust God they are ok. YOU can be a huge part if bringing normalcy to those that have had theirs taken from them. Please consider helping us help them...and God Bless!!

Hello everyone!! It has been quite awhile since I have posted an update. Thanks to everyone's donations we have helped literally thousands of people! Most recently we took care of providing a ice cream party for the children of South Caicos Primary School after they helped with all of the goods dispersal back in November. 

We are currently on North Caicos and a need has been identified. We are trying to help someone that will remain anonymous. The need is significant, as it will require about $30,000 to complete repairs to home, deck, and business all in one. We know with the kindness of our friends we can make this happen! 

We currently have about $345 to work with but are trying to raise $10,000 for these wonderful people who do so much for us, but also help so many of their own here on the islands.

To date we have not had an impact on North Caicos, but this is our chance to help now. We are seeking 100 $100 donors to complete this mission. Are you one of them? If so, please give.  If you can only give a small amount, that's ok too! 100 % of all proceeds will go directly to help this family. The only fee is the donation fee to You Caring. We do not take or accept any money for this personally.

Thanks!

Paul

$40,000!! THANK YOU isn't enough! We are so very appreciative to each and every donor and each share we get. Your donations are making a huge impact in the Turks and Caicos.

To date, we have donated nearly $31,000 to LOCAL organizations involved in work on the islands. Even today we have placed a $4,100 order for goods that will be shipped to the islands.

The islands will need help for many months to come, and we will continue to help as ling as donations are coming in. In that spirit, we are raising our goal to $50,000. Remember that every dime goes directly to help the people in Turks and Caicos!!

WE MET OUR INITIAL GOAL OF $20,000!!! 

We are now going to look at "doubling down" for the wonderful people of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

This fund will be donating 100% of all proceeds directly into the people (with a smaller portion going to animal care). We have chosen to work with agencies with 0...yes...0 FEES so that we can maximize the impact of our donors money.

If you want to be a part of the movement, please consider a donation! No gift is too small or large. Every gift will make a difference for someone. Whether it be food, water, clothing, a new roof. The sky is the limit. 

Thank you again!
