My name is Jerrell Wilson. Owner of SKB.
Hurricane Dorain has caused great devestation to two islands of the Bahamas.
Grand Bahama where i reside and Abaco.
Many families have lost thier homes, cars, children and other family members.
Things we take for granted such as flushing the toilet, taking a bath. making a hot meal or having something cold to drink. Have been more challenging. Many of us are still without city water or power.There have been a lot of devestation to homes but their has been a lot of devestation to businesses as well. There is a possiblity some or many Bahamians may lose their jobs due to the devestation of Hurrican Dorain. I want you to imagine how this situation adds to the devestation. Your house is destroyed, your vehicle destroyed, your child or one of your family members died during the hurricane. Then on top of that. You lose your job. You cant provide for you and your family basic needs. That is enough to cause anyone to have emotional and mental strees. My goal is to have 500,000 people & businesses donate as much as you can towards the survival of small businesses in the Bahamas and their employees. You can donate $5, $10, $50, hundreds or thousands of dollars. Many around the world have donated water and food to the Bahamas. We are truly grateful for the supples each family receive. The money that you donate today will help many families now and in the years to come receive their salaries needed to to take care of their family basic needs. The funds receive will assist with repairs and other priority items needed.
Why am i doing this. I can relate. Yes i am one of those who had extensive damage to my home, vehicles and my business but I realize that am not the only business that has been effected. Many businesses have been effected by Hurricane Dorain. It hurt me to see my staff of 10 and their familys being effected financially since the Hurricane. I am determine to do what it takes help them and many other employees in the Bahamas. Keep their jobs and take care of their families.
Since am from the Bahamas. I know the small busines community very well. . My current staff and i will asses each need and assist effectively as possible.
