Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Fund

$108,983 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 2,426 people in 5 months
My hometown Utuado (in Puerto Rico) was recently destroyed by Hurricane Maria. The current situation is bleak. Utuado is located in the mountains of Puerto Rico and the main roads have been destroyed. The people are desperate. Utuado has no power, fuel, fresh water or food. According to media reports, the people of Utuado are desperate for aid and the children and elderly are starving. Please help!

The Center for Planetary Science , a non-profit organization, is collecting donations to directly aid the town of Utuado. Please help me send aid to my town as soon as possible. The goal is to complete this campaign within a week so that we can ship food, water, medical supplies, etc. directly to Utuado! We are a non-profit organization so your donation is tax-deductible! Please help, we are desperate for anything! We are sending:

-Solar Lanterns
-Solar Radios for FEMA Information
-Personal Water Filters
-First Aid Kits
-Baby Formula and Diapers

Your donation will go directly to Utuado ... no red tape! All donations will be used to deliver food, water, medical supplies, batteries, and other emergency essesentials for the victims of this natural disaster. Again, your donation is tax-deductable!

Thank you!

We are back from Utuado. Our trip was another success. Our primary goal for this trip was to deliver medical aid to the elderly in Utuado. Evan and I visited 114 homes in the Utuado area. Thanks to your donations, Evan was able to conduct several different medical exams, including blood pressure checks and a handful of minor surgeries. On our last day we delivered hot bread to the homeless in San Juan. Our 6th trip is tentatively planned for late March. We will keep you posted.
