WHO WE ARE
“Association Les Amis du SXM Festival” and “Two Bunch Palm” are two non-profit associations created by the founders of SXM Festival and registered in Saint-Martin and Sint Maarten. Our mission is to support the rebuild of the island and rekindle its international reputation: one of the most popular and desired destinations in the Caribbean.
For over 15 years, Saint-Martin has been our second home. We have long forged strong ties with the island and its people and have adopted their culture.
We have strong relationships with the tourist offices of both the Saint-Martin and Sint Maarten territories with whom we have worked in solidarity to raise funds and to support people in need in their time of crisis.
As devastating as Hurricane Irma was, Saint-Martin is experiencing a renaissance. As a community united, we have the power to help our second home recover and for our little Caribbean jewel to be stronger than ever. We want to show St-Martin and all our friends on island who have given us so much joy, that we are worthy of their love.
OUR FUNDRAISING PROJECT
The day after Irma hit, we created a page on GoFundMe and used the festival's media to make a plea to our community for donations. Thanks to this campaign, and with the help of the generous “Mr. Mouche” (an event organizer in Paris), we raised $55,032.91 USD.
This contribution is modest in light of the huge needs of the island after the passage of Irma. We are proud to continue assisting the recovery by welcoming our fans back to the island.
We are grateful for their willingness to support our cause. We would like to thank with all our heart and on behalf of the people of St-Martin, for the generosity and compassion of every donor who has contributed. We are happy to present the result of these actions.
