Good360 seeks funding to ship desperately needed products to nonprofits working on Hurricane Dorian recovery in the Bahamas. Our partners are assisting communities in the early stages of recovery, but they have many unmet product needs. With your funding, Good360 can ship products donated by our corporate donors, like Soap, Personal Hygiene, Diapers, Wipes, Socks, Underwear, Flashlights, Earplugs, and Cleaning Products. Good360 has these products, we just need help covering the cost of shipping.
Hurricane Dorian destroyed much of the Bahamas over the course of a few days. Nonprofits have been arriving and finding conditions in certain areas to be very challenging - such as wind damage and destruction in the Abacos and flooding issues on Grand Bahama Island. They have many challenging product needs from early response items (toiletries, personal products, shelf stable foods) to cleaning products and mold remediation. The nonprofit budgets are slim due to low levels of funding support.
Good360 partner companies have donated products for each phase of the Bahamas disaster recovery; early response, clean up, rebuilding and re-living. We will match donated products with the unmet needs of vetted nonprofits working in this disaster. This will ensure that organizations get ONLY what they need and request. Our model reduces waste and increases the speed of recovery. On average, Good360 can amplify funding by at least 10x, so $1,000 allows distribution of $10,000 in products.
Good360 will work our vetted partners in all phases of disaster recovery in the Bahamas. It is important to us to remain through clean up, rebuilding and getting families back into homes. Our corporate partners have donated products for all phases, including long term recovery. We can provide everything from shelter items to cleaning/mold remediation to roofing/flooring and finally to furniture and household items. Typically only 5% of funding goes to long term recovery - please change that!
