Weʼve raised £7,280 to Help Sunchaser Scuba, Ben & Kay & Staff
- Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
- Funded on Friday, 3rd November 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Since The Hurricane the Island has been left with nothing, houses and businesses are destroyed and it is going to take a lot of hard work and money to get them functioning again, they are still without Power, Communication, Food & Water, although they are hoping that this will get better as the weeks go on,
Of Ben & Kay's life over on Virgin Gorda, Sunchaser Scuba (their dive shop) The hotel that it is part of and their apartment remains very little, roofs are flying, possessions are flying , their scuba gear is scattered everywhere, luckily their boats have survived, They are trying to get these in the water and help ferry supplies to the helpless
I have had a lot of messages of support for Ben & Kay from friends all around the world, asking if they are OK and what they can do to help,
So instead of donating to a government site where the money may get swallowed up and not have a clear purpose, or any fake sites that have cropped up, I have decided to set up one for the people of the Island that we know and love, all monies raised will go directly to Ben & Kay to distribute for rebuilding their beloved Island,
it is very frustrating to sit on the other side of the world without being contacted and helpless. This way we can do something for them without the red tape that always comes with these type of emergencies, Please give what you can, every little helps - Love Lisa & Kim (Kay's sister) xxx
