Family Relief Fund - Puerto Rico

Dear Family and Friends, 
As you all know, our beloved isla of Puerto Rico was destroyed by Hurricane Maria and is currently in a humanitarian crisis.  It is expected that life's everyday necessities we take for granted , like lights, electricity, air conditioning, clean water, cooktop,  and limited food. Many of us couldn't imagine being without these basic items for even a few hours, let alone 2 weeks now since the storm hit, or the projection the officials have given of 6+ months before electricity is restored.  Yet, we have family members living through this at this moment. 

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, we have spent hours each day listening and watching the news, spilling over photos, and videos of the catastrophe caused by this historic hurricane.   We have donated to local charities and continue to collect for the general population of Puerto Rico.  And, we have & remain continuously praying and asking for God's grace and hand over our loved ones and all of those on the island.     Yet, we still feel helpless and incredibily saddened.  

There is currently no way to get supplies directly to our post office services or express shipping is available.

Today (thru God's grace) we confirmed a process for getting much needed supplies and food directly to our family.   We would like to do our part to assist our family during this unimaginable time.   As a family, I am asking for your support to help get essential supplies and non-perishable food to our loved ones in Puerto Rico.  

Our goal is to secure the supplies as quickly as we can and ship out within a week.  It will take up to 5 days to reach the family once shipped.   Please give what you can to support nuestra familia.   If possible we are requesting all donations by October 7th or sooner, in effort to move quickly. 

Thank you in advance for your kind heart and generosity.   God Bless!
