Family in Puerto Rico

We've all seen the devastation of from Hurricane Maria on the news.  My girlfriends uncle, Max was one of the people that lost his life during the storm.  As he was trying to save his dogs and flea from water coming in to his home a storm surge came and tragically swept him away as people watched helplessly. 

Max was such a good husband to his wife Marta and an amazing father and grandfather.   Max and Marta are some of the nicest people you could ever meet.  The feeling that his smile in the picture gives off is what his energy was in real life.  Marta now lost her husband and her home.    Theres no way to get back everything that she lost, but I am hoping to raise some money to help make things just a little bit easier. 

I know a lot of people of people are looking for ways to help in storm relief.. This money would go directly to a family in desperate need, and a family who will share all of their resources with their neighbors in need in parts of Puerto Rico that may not be getting the immediate attention it needs.
