The Story

Please donate to assist with Anegada's recovery from the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.


There are numerous fundraising and relief efforts that have been created for the BVI. The truth is that none of those are going to benefit Anegada one bit. Anegada is the forgotten stepchild of the BVI. We are the last to receive any kind of aid from the government. The knowledge that we are on our own is what makes Anegadians so strong and stubborn. 


We need your help. 


Donations will be used only to purchase needed building materials for families and individual people. I will be on Anegada to supervise all distribution. No cash will be distributed, only building material. Priority will be given to people that are financially unable to help themselves.


Credit for the photographs that we have of Anegada goes to Caribbean Buzz Helicopters. They have done a tremendously good job of providing photos and videos of Irma's devastation. They had video available on the day after Irma passed through and continue to provide superb imagery. A big thank you to them!

Update October 12, 2017:

Things are going quite well, but we have had a setback.

We have purchased enough building material to fill two 40' containers - about 100,000 pounds of material. I will post an update with photos of the material when it is delivered to the shipping terminal.

The setback is that we estimated the shipping cost based on what information that we could obtain from the internet. We budgeted this amount plus 50% before allocating the rest of the current fund amount to purchasing material. Then, after we made the purchase, the shipping company told us that it was going to cost much more than our estimate even with the 50% padding that we had added.

So, as is, we have enough money to ship one container and get it to Anegada. We are nearly $10,000 short of having enough money to ship the second container to Anegada.

Please help us out! Dig in your pocket and find a little more money to ship the rest of the material that you have purchased. Share this, beg everyone that you know. This is vital to many people!
