More Info

Hi everyone! It is with an extremely heavy heart that I humbly write this to you this afternoon. This morning before 7 am on July 29, Lombok (the closest large island) suffered a 6.4 magnitude earthquake. I was riding my bicycle on the island and felt it here. Lombok has suffered extreme damage. Almost all of our captains and boat crew are from Lombok, Indonesia. They live here on the island in staff quarters making money to send back to Lombok for their wives and children who they get to see 4 days a month. 4 members of our boat crew had to rush home this morning to tend to families and houses- Habibi, Rosie, Aarie, and Abass lost their homes and Aarie's nephew took a huge blow to the head when the house fell and didn't survive, he was 5 years old. They also have multiple family members that suffered injuries alongside lost houses. Abass only finished his house 3 months ago. 

These guys are our family! We work side by side them every day and are always trying to help them out whenever they need something! If you could PLEASE find it in your heart to even donate 5 or 10 dollars, anything will help! It will now be a long process to get these guys back what they've worked hard for years to build. With your help, we could make the adjustment for them and their families faster than without. Please help us support our Indonesian family in this hard time! 

If you have any questions or would like to help in other ways, please contact me and I will let you know what you can do!
