Restore Puerto Rico

Restore Puerto Rico fundraiser sends funds directly to loved ones in Puerto Rico. Each dollar counts as it will help support getting those in need: water, food, gas and restoring their homes to more livable conditions. A dear and trusted friend of mine, Jariksa Valle Feliciano has agreed to act as a community organizer and will be delegating your generous contributions as the steward of the campaign donations.

Thank you for visiting, for your support and the reminder to me that we can come together and make a difference in the lives of others. To once again, connect with our human natures and be of service to one another during challenging times. 

As many have seen and have been exposed via media to the great destruction of Puerto Rico, here is a way to support and help directly the families there. It’s an opportunity to have a direct impact on the well-being and lives of others. ALL funds raised will go to Jariksa directly in Puerto Rico to redistribute to those in need in the west of the island of Puerto Rico.

My very dear and close friend, Jariksa Valle Feliciano, founder and owner of Chakra Verde has a great passion for organic agriculture and being a leader in Puerto Rico for bringing sustainable practices back into place. Part of her purpose is to connect with the roots and traditional practices that once permeated the island and implement these practices again. Her partner, Yordan Gonzalez O’neill recently flew from Puerto Rico to the Virgin Islands to support in rebuilding the infrastructure there. Jariksa and Yordan live in the west of the island with their 2 dogs, Luna and Copal. All of them are safe, staying positive and heart-centered as they navigate through this challenging time. Many material items have been lost or destroyed and have expressed their gratitude to be alive and safe and are working each day to stay centered and present amidst the chaos.

My heart is filled with gratitude to be in connection with them as they are both well known in their communities, have a gift for knowing what’s needed and creating positive change. For now, so much is up in the air and unsettled as to what exactly is needed to start rebuilding and supporting our fellow Puerto Ricans. I will be giving regular updates on how the funds are being used and supporting local families. Jariksa will be sending me updates, hopefully with photos too if the communication lines permit of the impact your donation is making. 

I, thank you from my heart for your support in helping a cause and being a support to those in need. 

In gratitude, 

Renee Rowe
