Dear Scuba Diving community:

We are Orion —an border collie— and Charly —my human family. Today we come to ask for your help.

On Saturday June 3rd, a fire destroyed my home and SmilingTulum, the diving company that Charly has built over the past five years.

What started like any other day of diving and smiles, turned into the worst nightmare anyone can have. Charly and a friend returned from a dive, they put the batteries to charge for the next day, We all went out to eat.

When we returned, we discovered that a fire had consumed years of work and the house where Charly's father lives in a matter of minutes.

Even amid the tragedy, I’m grateful that neither Charly nor his dad nor I had been inside the house at the time of the fire.

Heroic Firefighters managed to get the fire under control before it spread, but not fast enough to save the entire SmilingTulum equipment. The fire and smoke destroyed all our belongings and caused major damage to the property. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have insurance to cover the damage and we must rebuild it with our own resources.

To recover, we need your help in any of the following ways:

  • Volunteers to clean the house, (thanks to everyone who has been with Charly these days)
  • Reservations for tours
  • Monetary donations (any amount means the world),
  • Sharing this campaign.

We are infinitely grateful to you for not letting us down, even in the darkest hours.

With our hearts in our hands, we say thank you very much for all the love, support and care you have given us these days. Your companionship gives us the certainty that we will get ahead, and that fills us with hope.

And please do not leave batteries charging without supervision or if you do, set aside a special place for it and install an automatic fire extinguisher, believe it or not, they are very affordable and easy to install.

Thank You, thank you, thank you.

Orion and Charly
