“The Bahamas is a really special place to me. I’ve spent a lot of time there over the years, both with my family and in the studio, so I want to do all I can to help and I hope you will too,” Timberlake wrote on Instagram.
Timberlake is teaming up with Tiger Woods and some corporate partners to establish the One Bahamas Fund, which will help “raise money and support for the restoration and rebuilding” efforts. Justin, Tiger and their corporate partners have already pledged $6 million toward relief and rebuilding. Tiger says in a statement, “Our hope is that others will join us in the effort so we can actually raise $12 million or more.” “It’s horrifying to see the videos and hear the stories about the effects of Hurricane Dorian,” Woods said. “We’re matching each contribution dollar for dollar so if someone gives $100, we’ll match it and from that one pledge, we raise $200.”
Justin wrote, “The damage and devastation the residents are facing after #HurricaneDorian is unfathomable so we’re matching dollar for dollar the next $6 million raised. If you give$1 we’ll match it so we can hopefully turn that $6 million into $12 million, together.”
