Official 2018 Charity: Help St. Barth
Hurricane Irma presented an early and urgent opportunity for the traditional St Barths Bucket donation. There has never been a more worthy, timely cause. In the immediate aftermath of the horrific September storm, we were able to help with some critical supplies and logistical assistance. Urgent needs included chainsaws for clearing roads and byways and tarps for the many roofs that were lost or damaged.
With the full support of the Stewards, the Bucket organizers coordinated stateside logistics and arranged for the purchase, shipping and payment of high priority goods and transportation. The courage and determination of the people of St Barths was, and continues to be, an inspiration.
Through the sales of the 2018 St Barths Bucket poster, we can provide further financial aid to help those people most in need as they continue to rebuild and refurbish on this most beautiful island.
