Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, who have been busy restoring a resort on South Andros Island in Bahamas as documented in the HGTV Canada series Island of Bryan, are safe and sound.

The Baeumler family were not on the island when Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas. The Caerula Mar resort, where the series is filmed, was not damaged and all of the staff and Island of Bryan crew there are safe. However, the incredible path of destruction has had a huge impact on the surrounding area and the Bahamian community.

After receiving news of the hurricane’s destruction, the Baeumlers organized a GoFundMe page and have pledged to match the donations. The Baeumler Family Charity will give 100 per cent of the proceeds directly to the Bahamas Out Islands in need. Their initial goal of $10,000 was surpassed within hours of launch, with contributions continuing to grow. The campaign runs until September 30, 2019.

In addition to the GoFundMe page, the Baeumlers and the Caerula Mar resort are offering to work directly with the local government, the Red Cross and other agencies to assist in recovery efforts. Following Hurricane Irma in 2017, Bryan helped assemble tractor-trailers filled with basic necessities and tools to help with reconstruction. The Baeumlers will be travelling back to Caerula Mar in the coming days.

The Caerula Mar Hurricane Dorian Relief GoFundMe campaign is being run through the Baueumler Family Foundation (a registered Canadian charity).

Note: The second season of Island of Bryan will premiere sometime in 2020. Stay tuned to HGTV.ca for the confirmed broadcast date.
