The British Virgin Islands are one of the most beautiful and popular vacation destinations in the world. Tourism is the engine that powers the country’s economy, so rebuilding hotels, resorts, restaurants, marinas, and other attractions is the top priority. Bringing the tourists back is essential to getting BV Islanders back to work and earning the money to rebuild their own homes and lives. They simply wiped away their tears, thanked God for their survival, rolled up their sleeves, and went straight to work. Those who still had something helped those who had nothing, and those who had much shared it, all with the common goal of making their country stronger, better, and more sustainable than it was before the storms.
I’ve written here before about Richard Branson and others of great means using their personal and corporate resources to jump start the recovery and rebuilding effort. And I know that there are plenty of people who want to pitch in however they can. But good intentions don’t mean anything unless you act on them. If you want to make an impact in this life, you’ve got to get up and do what you can to make things better, not only for yourself and your loved ones but for others. And that requires action.
That’s why Aerial’s media production arm, Aerial Produced, is using its resources to raise awareness. We’ve produced a documentary, “BVI Strong: A Story of Resilience and Recovery,” and we’re now producing a series, “BVI Stronger,” which chronicles the ongoing recovery and rebuilding. Click here to view the first episode, and you’ll also find a Get Involved button that will connect you to the initiatives that align most closely with your talents, interests, and resources.
We will continue to add new episodes to the series, so if you want to become involved, visit BVIStronger.com regularly to see the latest one and connect with initiatives to rebuild the BVI stronger, smarter, greener, and better than before.
The easiest way to help beyond being involved in initiatives is simply to take your next vacation in the British Virgin Islands. You’ll be amazed at the progress that’s been made in only a few short months. The water and sky are as clear and blue as ever, hotels and restaurants are open for business, and the people will win your heart.
If you don’t believe me, follow us on our journey this week in the BVI!
