What started out as a fun interview about what it's like to be a Below Deck Super Fan and charter yachts without cameras, wound up turning into one of Gangplank's most impactful interviews to date. Our guest Karen Borin has strong charitable ties to Haiti and just before the episode was set to air, Haiti's President was assassinated. We put the episode on hold out of respect during that difficult time and wanted to touch base with Karen again for an update. More misfortune beset the island nation right before the follow up and Haiti was hit with a massive 7.2 magnitude earthquake. With Karen's help HaitianSportsFoundation.org had just completed construction of a technical school, and it is now housing 90 displaced families who lost their homes. Karen shared their joint mission with us, and if you are moved to donate you can do so either through HaitianSportsFoundation.org 's website, or through the foundation Karen created in memory of her father The Duane Davis Foundation. Donations to The DDF can be made through Venmo at @TheDDF , authentication code 6503. Thank you in advance for anyone willing. We've already raised 700.00 through Twitter and IG and food has already been delivered to families in need, but there's more work to do.
