Like many in America, we watched with horror as hurricanes Irma and Maria tore a path of devastation across the Caribbean and areas of the southern U.S mainland.
The two hurricanes combined to cause life-changing damage to property, services and institutions in the region and directly contributed to a major humanitarian crisis in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.
After witnessing the news reports and hearing about the tragic loss of life, we wanted to make a real difference and help those in need. That’s why for the month of October, we decided to raise funds for the International Medical Corps (IMC).
The International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian charity that provides healthcare and other important services to disaster zones and other high-risk areas.
Over the years, the group has helped tens of millions of people in over seventy-five countries, saving and changing lives everywhere that they go. With their representatives on the ground in Florida, Puerto Rico, Haiti and across the Caribbean, we knew that all the money donated would make an immediate impact and go towards vital supplies and services.
At the beginning of October, we set aside a donation and pledged to add to that fund whenever we received an order. We had hoped to raise a minimum of $1,000 but thanks to you, our valued customers, we exceeded that amount!
In total, we raised an amazing $1,290. This money has been donated and has gone straight to those working on the front line, providing emergency relief and support.
If you would like to support the International Medical Corps in its efforts, you can do so via their Global Giving fundraising page.
Thank you once again for your support during this charity drive – we could not have done this without you.
