how to help victims of natural disasters

Having been invited into so many homes over the years, we know they mean the world to people. Homes are sanctuaries, solace, memories and a place to relax and be with loved ones. Due to the disasters all around the country (and world) right now, our hearts are broken for the massive amounts of people who have lost their homes, family members, and more. Due to Irma, more than 80% of structures in the Virgin Islands were severely damaged or destroyed, and we know many of those were the homes of people who need help.

Between the fires here locally affecting those close to us, and a member of our family, Jenna Baker, being caught in Hurricane Harvey’s Texas destruction, we’re feeling these hits pretty close to home.

We’re always looking to help others when we can, and we know you are too. Millions of people are without homes, food, water or other necessities, so we compiled lists of resources where you can help.

If you know of any resources we don’t have listed, please comment with them so others can help!
