God's Pocket Fire | How You Can Help

25 April 2014 - 09:58 AM

There was a devastating fire at God's Pocket Resort of the north end of Vancouver Island that took out generators, compressors, pumps, batteries, and desalinators.


For those of you who would like to help Bill and Annie get back on their feet, we are encouraging folks to purchase a God's Pocket gift card, and pay it forward back to the resort. To purchase a God’s Pocket Gift Card by Credit Card, either call 250.949.1755, or e-mail info@godspocket.com. Checks can be sent to God's Pocket, PO Box 130, Port Hardy BC V0N-2P0.


Here is Bill and Annie's description of what happened.


"On April 14th at 6pm we were all sitting around an amazing dinner which all of us at God’s Pocket had assisted in preparing for our 12 wonderful friends.  The power went out.


Shortly after a 1-minute stroll to the generator shed, we found ourselves scrabbling for fire hoses and pumps, making an emergency call to coast guard and coordinating a safe evacuation of 14 people and one pooch. Thirty minutes later there was nothing left of our entire infrastructure. Our generator shed and all equipment were melted down to nothing. No one was injured.  Loads of tears and scratching of the heads, but otherwise all is well.


Many of you asked what you could do to help. At this point we mostly need to get our ducks in a row before we start making calls to accept all the offers of labor. We aren’t quite prepared for that yet but we will be very soon. The one thing that would be most helpful to us is cash flow. We are not looking for charity; we invite you to visit our website and see if there are any dates that appeal to you in the 2015/2016 season. Your deposits will be very helpful in rebuilding God’s Pocket.


We have new gift cards that can be purchased for your own use, or to pass on to a friend. The gift cards will have no expiry date and can be purchased in the following denominations: $100, $250, $500, $1000 and $2,500."
