Shiver Hamilton Announces Matching Donation of $100,000 for Bahamas Relief
Atlanta based law firm, Shiver Hamilton, LLC announced a $100,000 matching donation for relief efforts currently underway in the Bahamas today. The donations will go directly to victims of Hurricane Dorian, which ravaged the northern island chain in the Bahamas known as the Abaco islands. Many victims are homeless and have no access to fresh water. Food is quickly running out.
To raise money and distribute needed provisions, Shiver Hamilton is partnering with Allen Exploration, a company with deep ties to the Bahamas. In fact, Allen Exploration founder Carl Allen recently purchased the legendary fishing island and resort known as Walkers Cay “Allen Exploration and Carl Allen have been amazing stewards of Walkers and the neighboring island, Little Grand Cay” said Shiver Hamilton partner Jeff Shiver. “While there are many great organizations providing support during this catastrophe, we are confident 100 percent of the money collected by Allen Exploration will directly benefit the people of the Bahamas, particularly Little Grand Cay.” According to a press release by Carl and Gigi Allen, who have also committed $250,000 to the initiative, the sources and uses of all funds will be made public.
Little Grand Cay is a small outlying island occupied by a few hundred people. “Unfortunately, it appears Little Grand sustained disabling damage to critical infrastructure” according to Shiver. “No lives were lost, thankfully, but the entire island is without power, communications are down and the desalination plant is destroyed. Being such a remote island and not a popular resort district, we fear this is the only way the people on this island can get life-saving relief.”
Allen Exploration owns a fleet of vessels it is making available to bring supplies to Little Grand.
Preparations are being made so that all donations will be routed through a 501(c)(3) charity. Donations can be made online by following this link.
Shiver Hamilton asks that anyone donating please also email Jeff Shiver at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to have their donation matched by Shiver Hamilton.
