The challenges that we face and will conquer with your help

Estimated Monthly and One-Time Expenses:

  • We will be renting a home that is fully furnished along with dishes, linens, appliances, etc.  $1,000/mo
  • The island utilities are very expensive, (water, internet, electricity). $600/mo
  • Food and other items are all imported to the island with hefty taxes applied, with the exception of eggs and local fruit $500/mo
  • We plan to take as much as we can pack into our bags on the flight and that should be all that we need while there. $2,500 for 6 R/T tickets
  • Private school for Anna and Wiley $400/mo
  • The island roads are very steep and hilly, so travel by bike is not an option.  For that we will plan to purchase a used SUV on the mainland. $5,000

 Breakdown of what a donation can accomplish:

If 50 people commit to a monthly donation of $20, that is $1000

(our rent is covered for the month!)

If 50 people commit to a monthly donation of $50 a month, that's $2500

(rent, utilities, food is covered!)


The people we have on board with us is not just about a dollar amount, it is TOTALLY about accountability.  We want to be held accountable for following through with our commitment to you: to go out there and make a difference in the lives of people that would have no chance otherwise.  We thank you for your consideration in joining us, following us and letting others know about what WE are doing together.
