For all you Windows 10 players that still (a month and increasing) cant connect to Facebook (no ETA on a fix for it) a tip for this event since it will require you to drop goodies on other players islands to complete this before D-day. If you don't have anyone in you local friends list go to their island or boat if they are there and friend them using the +. Then when you have goodies to give you can go to their island. The big tip is to use the boats at your friends island and go to the boats on your friends island and give goodies, then a boat on your friends friend island and jumping as deep as you want. Without Facebook it was the fastest way I found to give as many goodies as I could.

I just used this method to help my fiancé drop the last of his wrenches....gets frustrating when some don’t have any boats to go to, and there is no back button to go back to the island you were on lol. But another way to do it also, is to just go to the world market and visit islands that way.

I've also found you can hold out on collecting the last rewards from your last dive, this way you have thoes friends you can help, and by the way this has been going on sinces the middel of April for me, and we are only allowed 8 players we can friend with the + on an island or boat. and yes we can boat hope, I'm ready for it to be fix, tired of these shade tree tricks have to do, just to play the game, dont mean to be smart or disrespectful, just saying enough is enough, an thank you for your suggestion, thought I would add this one about the dive list.
