Calvin Ayre is no stranger to philantropy (charity work and contributions that is) and it seems almost every year, his Calvin Ayre Foundation is behind a cause and this year it's one that is close to home with Hurricane Irma leaving a wake of destruction in the carribean including Barbuda.

Calvin Ayre has announced that his foundation will be matching donations for the Barbuda relief up to $1 million.


Cash donations can be sent to the Barbuda Relief & Rebuilding Fund via government accounts set up at the following banks:

Antigua Commercial Bank: Barbuda Relief & Rebuilding Fund account #100004771
Caribbean Union Bank: Barbuda Relief & Rebuilding Fund account #10001372.

Donations can also be made to the Red Cross relief effort by downloading the TickeTingEvents #helpBarbuda app from either the iOS App Store or Google Play, or via the TickeTingEvents website.

Wherever you choose to donate, send [email protected] a copy of your receipt and the Calvin Ayre Foundation will add an equal amount to the money they’ve already committed. If you donate $100, it will in effect be equivalent to $200 directly helping the Island of Barbuda.
