News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Sept. 29, 2017: One Caribbean-based non-profit organization is shining way above the many other fundraising efforts to help Caribbean victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria launched on crowd funding platform, GoFundMe.

The group has so far raised over half a million dollars by crowd funding alone to help with hurricane relief efforts on one island.

St John Rescue, Inc. says it “is dedicated to saving lives and building a better community through participation, education, and community spirit” and all of the money will be used to help the St. John community specifically in the US Caribbean territory that was decimated by Hurricane Irma.

St. John Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit group launched in 1996. It currently has over 45 volunteer members who help provide: emergency rescue and medical support services to St. John EMS, Police, Fire, National Park Service, VITEMA and DPNR.
