Help The Bahamas recover from Hurricane Dorian
Just over two weeks ago, the Category 5 Hurricane Dorian made landfall in The Bahamas; the strongest to ever hit the region.
The impact from this disaster has been devastating. There are over 50 confirmed fatalities, which is expected to rise dramatically as 1,300 people are still listed as missing. Currently, it is estimated over 76,000 people have been left homeless by the hurricane and are in desperate need of food, water and shelter.
On 12th September 2019, we pledged to raise $15,000 to aid the relief efforts in The Bahamas. We plan to purchase a Watermaker to help provide clean water for survivors, with all remaining monies donated to Bahamian charitable organisations and local businesses.
What are we doing to achieve this fundraising target?
1) Our Blue O Two Directors & Investors have already donated £5000.
2) We are accepting donations from our customers, which Blue O Two will match up to a value of $200 per transaction.
3) Some of our upcoming trips are affected by this disaster aboard M/V Bahamas Master. For all customers choosing to rebook for a later date in The Bahamas (rather than cancelling), we will be donating $200 towards our target.
4) Our staff are being actively encouraged to suggest fundraising ideas – More on this to follow.
What can you be doing?
MAKE A DONATION
Even if you’re travelling with us elsewhere, we’re matching every single donation pledged, up to $200 per transaction.
KEEP BOOKING HOLIDAYS
The Bahamas has already been decimated. The worst thing to happen now for the local economy is for tourism to falter too. Whether you come diving with us, or book with another tour operator, we really don’t mind. They will rebuild, and they need visitors to keep coming next year.
DON’T CANCEL YOUR TRIP
If you’re given the option, please consider moving to a later departure date in The Bahamas. As mentioned above, for everyone who does, we’ll donate $200.
Together, with our staff and customers, we hope to make a big difference for the people of The Bahamas.
Call our team on 01752 480 808 to make a donation.
