Motorcity Recovery Efforts For PR

$11,965 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 54 people in 22 months
My name is Abby Martinez. My husband is Javier Martinez, a Waterford Regional Fireman. Together with Sean Blackman, we are teaming up to put together a relief for Puerto Rico. Join us Thursday, October 26th at the Garden Theater in Detroit to celebrate the Puerto Rican culture with In Transit's monthly world concert series with music, art, dance and cuisine. ALL Proceeds from ticket sales and donations are being given to relief efforts for families in Puerto Rico and will be delivered in person by Sean Blackman and Javier Martinez.
This is how it will work... 
The funds will be spent on non-perishable foods, water, generators, medical supplies, cleaning supplies, etc; distribution, delivery, and transportation of goods according to shipment capabilities. Most of the goods will be distributed to the town of Aguirre, PR (where our family is from) and nearby towns.
We will withdraw the funds before we travel to Puerto Rico and either buy goods or distribute money to families in need.

Sean Blackman...
"One of my closest friends, Pontiac firefighter, Javier Martinez is a Brother to me. He recently returned home from a challenging trip from his homeland of Puerto Rico with stories and photos so powerful that they inspired me to change the format of my monthly concert series... In Transit Detroit will be giving all ticket sales from this month's concert to aid in the relief and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. Javier & I have teamed up and will be curating the concert together as well as personally taking all proceeds to Puerto Rico to distribute to families in need.
We will also be accepting supplies throughout the month to take with us. "
