Look for the Helpers!
You find the helpers, you find hope!
When the winds blew, we stayed strong, when the ports closed, we stayed strong, when the airport didn’t open, we stayed strong! I know this because St Thomas is my home, because the people there are my people! My pulse runs with the rhythm of the waves crashing on the beach down at Neltjeberg. Living on island isn’t easy, sure it’s beautiful, but it comes with its own challenges known only to those of us call it home!
From the wreckage of Hurricane Irma, stories of perseverance emerge from the rubble. Stories of neighbors helping neighbors, stories of the community coming together, stories of boat captains helping others, private citizens getting supplies to those in need! Do you know one of these helpers? Send us their story, let us help tell the story of how a little island in the Caribbean pulled together in the face of unbeatable odds!
