Pam hits Vanuatu; hard.

You want to know what love is?

Love is compassion. Love is uniting. Love is communities coming together. Love is putting all your personal issues aside and helping those in need. Love is thinking about other people’s needs before your own. Love is being kind. Love is giving even if you don’t have much yourself. Love is love. And every little bit counts.

My island home has just been battered by the monster of Cyclone Pam. If you don’t know Vanuatu, please look it up. It’s a spectacular place that is such a beautiful piece of paradise, and has just been hit by one of the worst storms in 30 odd years. The damage has not been confirmed as yet, but so far it’s been devastating. Flooding, trees are down, roofs ripped off, and apparent lives lost.

Some friends have set up this site to help manage funds and donations from around the world. Please get behind it and help these communities out.

If you have a spare $1, $10, $100 or just anything to spare, please, please help out where you can. Being kind feels good. I have family and friends that still live there and I’m gutted that I can’t do anything but sit here and hope that they are ok.

My heart and thoughts are with all those who are out there facing this devastation.

Peace and Love ️️✌️ ❤
