Kenny was pretty quick to respond to the need for Irma funding....anyone know if Buffett's camp has done the same? He has certainly profited just as much, if not more, from island inspiration?

Just curious as I have seen nothing as of yet.

He has in the past been right on top of it. I'm waiting to hear as well

My wife and I were just discussing this. He's been very quiet. Very odd.

I did receive an email letting me know there were new Margaritaville shirts available online.

Not all good-doing is seen. Heck, he could be behind some of these large anonymous donations that are popping up on many of these Caribbean fundraisers....who knows.

I would point out that he is much more directly and personally tied to Florida, and the Florida Keys, than he is to the BVI. He grew up in Florida. His home (well, at least one of them) is still in Florida. As such, it would not surprise me if he is putting most of his resources into the disaster relief that is required there. And there is a lot of disaster relief needed, particularly in Key West.

He grew up in Alabama. Most every burger dive on the redneck riviera (Alabama and NW FL) coast claims that they are the original Hamburger in Paradise. :)

Trey Anastasio of Phish penned a long, heartfelt post about Tortola yesterday, appealing for help/donations:

That's funny - because Jimmy's own website (https://www.margaritaville.com/faq) says the famous meal took place in Roadtown.
