You can help victims in the Bahamas and other impacted areas by donating below. 100% of all donations will go directly to supporting response efforts. We will work with local United Ways and nonprofit agencies in the affected areas to support both immediate and long-term recovery needs.

Right now we are collecting dollars to provide 270,000 meals and medicine to help 10,000 people (for at least 90 days).
