Irmaria Recovery Contest

St John hurricane relief donations have fallen off as the nightly news focuses on each new event unfolding around the world. The generosity of so many people has been amazing! But, recovery won’t be measured in weeks or months. And recovery will require money and volunteerism well into the coming year(s).

So, we decided to make donating fun!
“How?” …

You know those essay contests where the chosen essay entrant gets a house or a Bed & Breakfast? Well, we’re going to bring you some beautiful St John inspired items. “They aren’t for sale so how do I get one?”

All you have to do is Make a donation of a minimum of $5.00 and tell us in 200 characters or less ( that’s a Paypal limitation – we know you could write 2,000 or 2 million characters – and hey, it’s 56 more characters than Twitter allows! ) Why You Love St John.

A WINNER will be chosen by our round table of “rum scholars” and St John lovers. The WINNER will receive the item we’ve posted! The proceeds from each essay contest will be split between (3) St John relief and recovery organizations ( see RULES for details ). Sound like fun?
