Anegada Relief Fund
      #1744536 - 09/09/17 07:10 PM (184.173.226.162)

Essentially nothing that is donated to other funds will benefit Anegada. Anegada is the forgotten stepchild of the BVI. We are the last to receive any kind of aid from the government. The knowledge that we are on our own is what makes Anegadians so strong and stubborn.

Therefore, I have created a fund for Anegada Relief. No cash will be distributed to anyone. Everything that is collected will be used to purchase supplies for the people of Anegada. I am going to be there to manage and distribute.

Was about to pm you about this, Walker, but you have anticipated all questions and have provided us a way to do the right thing.

Glad to join in.

Many thanks,

David

Are you sure you won't have a problem with immigration?
They might consider it working.
Best of luck

Great job, Walker. Everyone who has ever been to Anegada can vouch for the friendliness and consideration the people there have shown us on our vacations; even if we do not know them as well as you do, our hearts go out to them and now our money can help.
Perhaps everyone can think of contributing, say the cost of a meal or accommodations...every amount will help. Thank you for doing this, Walker.

Walker, thank you for taking the Lead on this effort. It is an honor to donate to this cause. Having visited Anegada so many times with family, friends and guest I am heart broken to see what has happened.

Walker, if you're on island we would appreciate any contact from Anegada. We are shipping FCL tarps and gennys to p Purcell. Let me know what you need for Anegada community and we be sure name marked on goods. Hope to ship this week with 8 days transit time direct from St Johns east coast.

Blessings all

I am not on island yet. I will go down as soon as our first shipment is on the way. We have two 40' FCL - about 100,000 pounds - of building materials shipping from New Jersey. The first container should be sailing by this weekend. The second container has to wait for delivery of galvalum roofing.

Anegada could use some tarps and generators. We still have some open roofs.

PM me for info on how to get things to Anegada through Port Purcell. It takes a bit of a workaround.

Any changes on the approach to setting point or depth to the anchorage? Was pretty shallow last time there 2016. Hopefully didn't fill in with more sand.

Other than the fact that the channel markers were blown way off station, I doubt that there are any substantial changes to the anchorage or approach.

We haven't asked how you survived the hurricane in Houston. You're not complaining, but are you okay there?

We were on Anegada when Harvey hit here. We were very fortunate. Homes only a block away in almost any direction had water damage. We had none. Although the terrain here looks like it is flat, there are slight rises - and we happen to be on one of them.

The relief fund is going very nicely. Donations are now over $66,000. We have purchased two full containers of building material and are now in the process of getting it all transported. It is nearly 100,000 pounds of material.

I joined forces two weeks ago with Hannes Scheepers, owner of BluCharters. Hannes has organized a group of professional construction people to come down and help with the building.

We did have a bit of a setback, however. When I was creating the budget for material, I used an online estimator for the cost of transport. I added a 50% margin to that cost and allocated the rest of the money that was available at the time to material. When we then began actual booking, the shipping wound up being way over our budget (about $10,000 over!). So, at the moment, we have enough money to ship the first container and are having to wait for more donations before we can ship the second one. We would really appreciate the help if anyone can find a bit of money to help us get the material delivered.

The Anegada Beach Club has been phenomenal in assisting us. Getting material through Port Purcell to specific entities is difficult. ABC is letting us consign the entire containers to them, and they are arranging transport of the containers to Anegada. Further, since I have no power at home, they are giving me a room and use of their kitchen while I am on Anegada.

The wonderful folks at Neptune's Treasure are providing rooms and meals for Hannes and his group.

We hope to have the first container arrive and be on island to begin work about a week from now.
