Many Caribbean Islands, such as Dominica and Barbuda, are in immediate need from the devastation that hurricanes Irma and Maria caused throughout the Caribbean, and require ongoing humanitarian support.

“Caribbean Love Now” has been formed as an integrated relief campaign to help with donation of resources and funds.

Joseph Bogdanovich’s DownSound Entertainment/Reggae Sumfest, along with related companies: H&L Hardware and Lumber, H&L Rapid True Value, H&L Agro, Parkland Industrial Company, KLE, Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records, and FranJam have put together a team of professionals and top-level brands and sponsors to execute this multi-faceted initiative. More companies and organizations are being added each day, and updates will be forthcoming. To find out about partnering with Caribbean Love Now, visit Facebook Page…and stay tuned for the launch of in the next few days.

Bogdanovich, along with Jamaican Sumfest staff and advisors, and artist Tarrus Riley, have already commenced the #CaribbeanLoveNow campaign by visiting Dominica, Antigua, & Barbuda and met with officials there to personally assess the damage and discuss rebuilding efforts.

Mr. Bogdanovich will leverage the businesses and brands with which he is associated to rally donations on behalf of the people in islands impacted by the hurricanes.


The Caribbean Love Now Disaster Relief Initiative includes donations of building supplies and goods; the JAMATHON celebrity telethon and concert; and online donation platforms.

“Let’s us help” is the cry of the Jamaican people as they witness the devastation by hurricanes to neighboring Caribbean islands.

In a recent Caribbean Business article, Bogdanovich was quoted as saying, “Now, more than ever we have to stand up for our Caribbean brothers and sisters. No one could have imagined that so much could have been lost so quickly. Jamaica is in a position to help in a meaningful way, but we must act now.”

Relief, Recovery, Rebuilding, and Restoration of the hard-hit areas of the Caribbean are the long-term goals of this initiative and efforts will continue into the future.
