In case you haven’t heard, we’re holding a raffle. And it’s pretty great. For just $25, you can enter to win a full vacation to St. John. The vacation package is valued at more than $6,500 and includes everything from a villa to airfare credit to a Jeep and more! And even better, the proceeds are going to support Bahamas relief.
In February 2018, All Hands and Hearts – a nonprofit organization that addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters – arrived on St. John. They stayed 18 months and helped residents put their lives back together following hurricanes Irma and Maria. They did everything from muck and gutting to roof repairs and rebuilds. They were instrumental in our recovery, and we’re pretty certain they’re going to be instrumental in the Bahamas’ recovery too. So we want to support them in that endeavor. It’s our way of paying it forward.
So far, we have sent All Hands and Hearts $100,000. Pretty incredible, right??!! What’s even more incredible is that Norwegian Cruise Lines is matching that amount. So, with the help of all of you, we have been able to give $200,000 to All Hands and Hearts for their relief work in the Bahamas. Now is that doesn’t make you smile today, I’m not sure what will.
I am so appreciative of all the businesses that donated to this raffle, and all did it without hesitation. So if you are looking for businesses to support during your next trip, please add our donors to your list. (Listed below.)
