Bahamian Hurricane Relief

Bahamian Hurricane Relief

Many of you have heard me talk about the work that I do with One Eleuthera Foundation, one of the leading NGOs in the Bahamas. Much of my time over the last few days has been spent trying to assist them with raising money and resources to help the victims of both Abaco and Grand Bahama. WE will serve as a collection point for supplies over the next few weeks (see below for the list). The stories that I am hearing are heartbreaking, and the death toll is sure to rise significantly.
