Help for Cuba after Hurricane Irma

The people of Cuba need our help. Irma made landfall in Cuba as a catastrophic CAT 5 hurricane, leaving behind complete devastation.

Cuban photographer Carlos Ernesto Escalona, and I have joined forces to help those who have been terribly affected, and we need your help to make this happen.

We are raising money to buy basic supplies, food and water for their neighborhoods, and they will need all the help they can get to rebuild their homes. 

$10, $5 or even $1 counts. If you can't donate, please help us share this information.
Also, Carlos is leaving to Cuba on Friday, September 15. ANY DONATIONS BEFORE FRIDAY (9.15.17) will arrive in Cuba that same day.

We may not be able to rebuild an entire city, but we can help families put a hot meal on the table, and give them basic supplies to help them on this very hard journey they have ahead. 

If anyone who is in Miami would like to donate goods or send money to their families, please message me privately to make arrangements.

Thank you, everyone! <3 

For further context: 
Carlos Escalona and Rachel Rojas, both are good friends of mine. They will be handling the funds in Cuba, since they are very connected in the community and are highly trusted. They both live on the island. We want to mainly get help to the inner provinces where people have been most affected. 

UPDATE: All donations until Nov. 22  have been delivered to Cuba. Thank you!!
