Provide Media Coverage for our US Citizens in the Virgin Islands Disaster Relief Efforts


Over 110,000 American citizens live in the United States Virgin Islands. The Islands of St. Thomas and  St. John have suffered devastating destruction to their homes, businesses, restaurants, resorts, and overall infrastructure.

With little to no internet capabilities, no electricity and running water, as well as communication challenges the residents have months and months of rebuilding ahead.  

Major news outlets and media sources have given intermittent, if any, coverage at all to this dire situation. 

Relief efforts are finally coming in, but more coverage of this situation is desperately needed. 

Many of us don't live on island but hold a special place in our hearts these people and their home. Fundraising efforts are underway, but we need more exposure to make this a success. 

These people are American citizens, and they need our help! Please help us secure more media coverage of their needs and fundraising opportunities.

All we are asking is to include these relief efforts in the landscape of the overall broadcasting. 

Those wishing to donate can find three reputable organizations here:

St. John Community Foundation:

St. John Rescue, Inc.: 

St. John Animal Care Center:
