Time is of essence. We will be ready to publicly launch the auction as soon as we receive a scale of donations, so please act now. Our aim is to publicly launch this weekend, with donations accepted until Monday, September 16th.

We will be promoting the online auction and sharing information with you as to how you can help promote it as well. The auction also is a way to provide assurances to the public that the Caribbean is open for business.


With your support, we will be making a difference in the lives of so many affected by this devastating storm.


Thank you!
