I’m writing to give my heartfelt thank you for all of your help in shipping relief items to St. Thomas. Every person that I spoke with at Caribbean Cargo was professional and kind.
A little background: In 2010 I competed in the Miss America pageant as Miss DC. My best friend there was Miss Virgin Islands, Shayla Solomon. Last week Shayla called me to tell me that her family lost everything in Hurricane Irma and Jose. My entire Miss America class sprung into action to raise money and send Shayla and her family items. After raising $3000 in 5 days, I went to UPS to ship my goods. UPS quoted me $1500 to ship our generator and $800 a box after that. There was no way we could afford that.
Shayla’s aunt lives in Maryland and recommended you all. I’m so grateful that you were offering a 30% discount to ship to St. Thomas. We were able to get all 5 large boxes out and even picked up from my house for less than shipping one box at UPS.
I can’t thank you enough! Thank you for caring about the people there and making sure we can all step up and help.
