What began as a group text in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian led to a simple question from Justin Leonard: What can we do?

Leonard and his wife, Amanda, have property at Baker's Bay just east of Great Abaco in the Bahamas, and she was on a text chain with a woman who lives in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, and had a home near Baker's Bay. The woman, Beth Warren, was hosting families and sharing tales of the devastation and the needs.

The answer was a collaboration with player and analyst Brad Faxon and Seth Waugh, the retired Deutsche Bank Americas CEO and now president of the PGA of America.
