The fund has been set up with 100 per cent of the proceeds going directly to the Bahamas Out Islands in need, while Caerula Mar will be working directly with local government, the Red Cross and other agencies in order to assist in Dorian recovery efforts. The fundraising campaign will run until Sept. 30 and the Baeumler Family Foundation (a registered Canadian charity) will be matching all proceeds.
