The main priority is now to get supplies for the locals and ask friends for donations. Those abroad who feel helpless this is the best we can do right now and send care packages as soon as possible. This will be very important in the coming months.

The Dutch and French Military are supplying the island and re-supplying them up until Jose hits on Saturday. More will come after Jose as that is complicating things.

If anyone is looking to donate to a local charity us St Maartners are prioritizing this campaign: http://rebuildsxm.com/.

This campaign was built by Unified St Maarten Connection, an organisation that helps students from SXM go to study in Europe. It's a SXM organisation so we recommend you donate to this one.

Holland has also released the National Disaster fund of 2 million euros for St.Maarten and www.rodekruis.nl (Red Cross Netherlands) is accepting funds in Holland via donations to bank account NL02INGB0000005125.

You can also donate to SXM Festival's GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/rescuesxm. This page was endorsed by the Tourism Bureau in St Maarten and by SXM Festival (obviously).

St.Maarten is on the news, talk shows, continuously. We need to keep them coming and let the world know! Contact your local media and get people to donate, especially in the Netherlands and France!

People back home get ready for hurricane Jose and get to shelter! #hurricanejose is now a Cat 4 and is coming on Saturday afternoon!

One Island, one people, one love!

Ive been asked to create a gofundme but if I do it would be for relief to my immediate family and friends. Will update on that.

Please share this information. #SXMStrong #SXMRebuild #SXMInfo #SXM
