Puerto Rico se levanta!

As many of you know Puerto Rico is devastated by the passing of Huricane Maria on September 20, 2017. Puerto Rico needs your help to lift itself back up, not only today, but a month, two months and even 6 months from now.  If you have considered donating to a large organization, that it wonderful, but I have another option for you. I am raising money for certain marginalized communties in Puerto Rico that are many times forgotton about. I am one of the lucky ones that was able to leave and spend some time in my parents home in CT while things get a little better. On my return, I will be entering these communties and speaking with residents to see what their needs are in order to provide the direct and specific service that many times is lacking. This could be water, food, building materials, furniture etc.  I want to thank everyone for their endless support during this difficult time and remeber that anything helps! PUERTO RICO SE LEVANTA!
