S.O.S - Your help is needed

St. Mary's County, MD-based seaplane

Leonardtown, MD - As St. Mary's County and Southern Maryland residents woke up this morning to a beautiful autumn morning, thousands of residents who live on St.Johns US Virgin Island are desperate for supplies.

According to reports from CNN, "More than 40 days and two back-to-back Category 5 hurricanes later, St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands is still in complete darkness.

While much of the national attention has focused on 81 percent of Puerto Rico not having power, U.S. citizens on St. John are also waiting on the return of electricity, and with it, a sense of normalcy."

As TheBayNet.com readers will recall three airlifts were flown to ST. John USVI, by St.Mary's County volunteers with Mission lead and plane owner JB Hollyer providing all funding needed for the effort . Supplies were donated.  There are more supplies readily available and a tremendous need to get them onto the island. Hollyer is ready to go, but now needs financial donations to fly the plane, buy the gas and cover ancillary costs.

Please contribute to the not-for profit at www.Seaplanecrossings.org which will provide information about the relief organization and why your help is so necessary. Please go to the web site and donate, as Hollyer is ready to go again, but frankly this time financial help to get the plane down to the islands with relief supplies is essential literally to buy the gas. Please chip in and email m.fairclough@thebaynet.com for additional information
