Help Puerto Rico | Hurricane Relief

$1,545 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 14 months
Hey guys, it's Silent. I have started this fundraiser to raise funds to purchase much needed supplies for Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico. 

For the last 4 years I have been back and forth to the island, working on a documentary on La Perla, Puerto Rico. La Perla is one of Puerto Rico's most notorious "slums" and is unfortunately infamous for its negative reputation. The goal in making my documentary was (and still is) to shed light on the positivity within the community. 

I lived in La Perla and spent time in other communities for a few months and was able to connect with many residents. The island has a special place in my heart and I was absolutely devastated at the destruction that Hurricane Maria has left behind. 

People were left homeless, roofless, hungry, thirsty, hot and without electricity. I have spoken to community leaders, the local pastor and residents and would like to provide relief supplies directly to the communities of La Perla, Villa Clemente, Tocones and Catano. 

The funds raised will be used to purchase items such as: nonperishable foods, water bottles, feminine hygiene products, first aid kits, battery operated fans, batteries, tarps (to cover damaged rooftops), small toys for children and other necessities. If you wish to donate actual bulk items (cases of water, packs of batteries etc.) please email me to make arrangements at laperladocumentary@gmail.com. 

You will see what your donation has provided via photos and video footage posted on here and all social media pages.

With your help, we will be able to give back and rebrighten a community of amazing people. I hope that we can exceed our goals and inspire others to come together with love, in support of those in need.

Don't hesitate to share this campaign with your friends and family. Sharing increases the chances of reaching other people who may be able to help as well. Thank you!

Hola. He comenzado este recaudador de fondos para recaudar fondos para comprar suministros muy necesarios para las víctimas del huracán María en Puerto Rico.

Durante los últimos 4 años he estado yendo y viniendo a la isla, trabajando en un documental sobre La Perla, Puerto Rico. La Perla es uno de los barrios más famosos de Puerto Rico y es conocido por un estigma negativo. El objetivo de hacer mi documental fue (y sigue siendo) para arrojar luz sobre la positividad dentro de la comunidad.

Viví en La Perla y pasé tiempo en otras comunidades y pude conectar con muchos residentes. La isla tiene un lugar especial en mi corazón y yo estaba absolutamente devastada por la destrucción que el huracán María ha dejado atrás.

La gente quedó sin hogar, sin techo, con hambre, sed, calor y sin electricidad. He hablado con los líderes de la comunidad, con el pastor local y con los residentes y me gustaría proporcionar suministros de socorro directamente a las comunidades de La Perla, Villa Clemente, Tocones y Catano.

Los fondos recaudados se utilizarán para comprar artículos tales como: alimentos no perecederos, botellas de agua, productos de higiene femenina, botiquines de primeros auxilios, ventiladores con baterías, baterías, lonas (para cubrir tejados dañados), pequeños juguetes para niños y otras necesidades. Si desea donar artículos reales a granel (casos de agua, paquetes de baterías, etc) por favor envíeme un correo electrónico a hacer arreglos en laperladocumentary@gmail.com.

Usted verá lo que su donación ha proporcionado a través de fotos e imágenes de vídeo publicado aquí y todas las páginas de medios sociales.

Con su ayuda, seremos capaces de devolver y volver a aclarar a una comunidad de personas increíbles. Espero que podamos superar nuestras metas e inspirar a otros a unirse con el amor, en apoyo de los necesitados.

No dudes en compartir esta campaña con tus amigos y familiares. Compartir aumenta las posibilidades de llegar a otras personas que pueden ser capaces de ayudar también. ¡Gracias!

Thank you for your donations for Puerto Rico Community Relief! During the holidays I mentioned buying mosquito nets, battery operated lights, book bags filled with goodies and more. I shipped the items to PR and I wanted to share a couple of photos that were sent to me. At some point in the coming month I will be purchasing other items to give to those in need since I am now on the island. Your donations were GREATLY appreciated! Stay tuned for updates.

Hey guys, I wanted to give you an update regarding the fundraising campaign efforts. I did a video showcasing all the items I've bought thus far: Battery operated light switches, packs of batteries, mosquito nets, goodie bags for children and more. I also show the Puerto Rico photo calendars that I recently made. There are two sizes available and all sales will be going to the fundraiser as well! Watch the video for details and feel free to share it on all social media platforms, as well as with family and friends. Thank you again. Your help has been greatly appreciated!

It has been 3 weeks since Hurricane Maria passed through Puerto Rico, and I can't even imagine what those affected are feeling right now. Every time I see new photos & footage, it makes me want to jump on a plane and give what I already have, but I know I have to be patient! The more items/donations I receive, the more people in need I can provide. Thank you so much for helping me raise $502 thus far... it is greatly appreciated. Please continue to share the campaign and spread the word... helping to make even a small difference, will make a big change in someone's life.
