Help Bring Light to Puerto Rico

My name is Hannah.  As you heard, Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria, and is struggling to recover.  Wilfred Rodriguez, our dear friend, is from there and will be traveling there to deliver supplies. We are going to be sending with him battery-powered lighting, as many as we can. These lanterns are small and very bright, and they illuminate a large room.
The sun sets in P.R. between 4pm-5pm, and rises between 6am-7pm. They are in pitch dark, with possible looting going on for 14+ hours.

If we raise enough funds we will be able to send light and water purification kits for individual homes. Please if you know anyone else who would love to help, share this message.
