Hi dears,
Can you make a donation this holiday season to help resilient rural communities in Puerto Rico rebuild after Hurricane Maria?  

This is a *FLASH* fundraiser with an urgent time sensitive deadline because I will bring donations directly to Puerto Rico on a flight 12/26.

Thousands lost everything in Hurricane Maria and most communities are still without water or electricity. Some places hae been isolated after bridges collapsed and landslides. Rural communities were hard hit and are showing their strength and perserverence as they step up to rebuild from the ground up. Everything we are able to do to provide material aid after this devastation has impact on the lives of hurricane survivors

Your donations will be used to buy these items requested by communities in Lares and Utuado. Even if you can only donate $5 it will go a long way. 
$7.99 provides a sturdy LED flashlight 
$9.49 buys 10 feet of mosquito netting 
$14.95 offers a solar lamp with a fan
$23.95 provides a solar charger  
$27.99 buys 473ml of citronella oil 
$39.99 provides a propane stove
$89.99 offers a rechagable deep cycle battery
$131.99 provides a foldable canopy and wall panel

Please share today, this is an urgent effort! The day after Christmas I will bring donations on my flight and deliver them directly to the community who generated this request. I will share follow up about the donations with each donor and on my Facebook page.

Please help out today! You can make a difference by clicking the donate button.


¿Pueden hacer una donación en esta temporada Navidad para apoyar a las comunidades rurales resilientes en Puerto Rico a reconstruir después del huracán María?

Esta es una recaudación de fondos * FLASH * con una fecha límite apremiante y urgente debido a que llevaré donaciones directamente a Puerto Rico en un vuelo 12/26.

Miles de personas perdieron todo en el huracán María y la mayoría de las comunidades aún no tienen agua ni electricidad. Algunos lugares han sido aislados después de que los puentes colapsaron y se derrumbaron. Las comunidades rurales fueron duramente golpeadas y muestran su fortaleza y persistencia mientras se preparan para reconstruir desde cero. Todo lo que podemos hacer para proporcionar ayuda material después de esta devastación tiene un impacto en la vida de los sobrevivientes de un huracán.

Sus donaciones se usarán para comprar estos artículos solicitados por las comunidades en Lares y Utuado.
Incluso si solo puedes donar $ 5, será un gran avance.
$ 7.99 proporciona una resistente linterna LED
$ 9.49 compra 10 pies de mosquiteros
$ 14.95 ofrece una lámpara solar con ventilador
$ 23.95 proporciona un cargador solar
$ 27.99 compra 473 ml de aceite de citronela
$ 39.99 proporciona una estufa de propano
$ 89.99 ofrece una batería de ciclo profundo rechagable
$ 131.99 proporciona una cubierta plegable y un panel de pared

Por favor, comparta hoy, este es un esfuerzo urgente! El día después de Navidad traeré donaciones en mi vuelo y las entregaré directamente a la comunidad que generó esta solicitud. Compartiré el seguimiento de las donaciones con cada donante y en mi página de Facebook.

Por favor ayuda hoy! Puede marcar la diferencia haciendo clic en el botón de donación.
