Thank you for helping with Dorian relief efforts!

Posted on October 18, 2019

We never cease to be amazed by the generosity and caring of the Howler family.   As everyone knows, the first week in September was a tough week for many thanks to the wrath of Hurricane Dorian.  It was an unpredictable storm that took a vast toll on the Bahamas and on parts of the East Coast.  Abaco, an island we love that is home to many friends, took the worst of it.

On September 6, we decided to give all the proceeds of our sales that day to Hurricane Dorian relief.  We raised just over $60,000 that day thanks to our customers generosity.  We received countless calls and emails from you all.  We sincerely appreciate it.

After the dust settled, we spent some time trying to figure out how to best use the funds to help those impacted by the storm.  We ultimately decided to give the funds to SBP, an organization that specializes in disaster relief whose roots go back to Hurricane Katrina.  After speaking to them on the phone and learning about their efforts, we also learned that our gift would be matched two times by Raising Cane’s and Latter & Blum - effectively tripling our impact.

It feels so incredible to be able to help out in this way.  From Hurricane Harvey to California Wildfire relief, the Howler family has always stepped up.  Many thanks to you all.
