Puerto Rico needs our help. My name is Garrett Fuller and we were fortunate enough to get off the island before this devastating Category 4 Hurricane plowed across the entire island leaving mass destruction. We love Puerto Rico and call it home along with many of our friends and family. We, along with some of our friends who were able to get off the island, feel like this is the best way for us to help our Puerto Rican family get back on their feet.
The entire island is left without any electricity, barely any clean water, depleted fuel and lost communication with the majority of the island. No one has access to their bank accounts on the island and may not for awhile to come.
How the funds will be used? We have friends who are with the FBI stationed in Puerto Rico and we are currently using the funds to purchase food and supplies and have a number of jets that are donated that we can fill so that they can take the goods to the FBI agents in Puerto Rico. From there, the FBI agents are able to disperse and get to the population. We just filled our first plane today (9/26/17) with these funds and plan to send more in the next couple of days. We are planning to fill at least one cargo plane full of necessities for everyone that is still on the island. We want to get this down there as soon as possibe, so every little bit of help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.***
Where are these funds going? **I want to make sure that you know that the funds you donate through GoFundMe are going to be deposited into my personal account and from there will purchase necessary supplies to send back to Puerto Rico. I want to add this because I want everyone who donates here to be perfectly aware of the process. I, along with many of my caring friends, are strictly doing this to help our people of Puerto Rico. If you are not comfortable with donating this way, please still donate to another platform of your choice. Puerto Rico is in great demand to recover from this devastation and we all can make a difference by sharing and/or donating.
How do we plan to send the funds to the parties you're raising money for or use the money on their behalf? - We plan to use these funds to pay for goods and supplies directly and keep the receipts for record. For example, we just purchased 8 chainsaws and accessories today and so they could cut down trees that are still in there roads back in Puerto Rico (9/26/17). It is an extremely sad situation there and we are just trying to help however we can from here.
**The demand for help is extremely high and the supply is low. Again, if you decide not to donate here, please, please still donate in one way, shape or form through another channel to help our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico is home to 3.5 million Americans who need our help more than ever right now. We have assembled a network of people and charities that are in need of more funds that will purchase more essentials like water, food, batteries, water purifiers, clothes, medicine, etc that our fellow Americans are in need of at this time.
Puerto Rico will recover from this because they are strong and will fight until this does happen. We can help this cause along by donating any amount of money.
We need your help now. Resources will run out and timing is of the essence at this point. We will put your money to work right away to provide relief of all forms to our beloved Puerto Rican family that is on the island.
