Hurricane Ida landed in Louisiana with winds over 150 mph, making it one of the strongest storms to hit the region in more than a century. Multiple people died in the storm's path. Ida has also caused widespread power outages. Thousands are displaced from their homes and the situation is even more dire because of the COVID-19 strain on the medical system.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts after Hurricane Ida. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected in the United States.

- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people and animals
- Support temporary relief and emergency supplies for displaced families
- Provide support to front-line workers, like meals and gas
- Meet other needs that emerge
