Relief for Puerto Rico

My name is Roman Carrillo and I work at Fitness19 in Pleasanton as a personal trainer. I am a native of Puerto Rico where on  September 20, 2017 hurricane Maria devastated the island, its citizens homes were destroyed. Many are still without power and shelter. To further complicate their lives, the island has been hit by a series of earthquakes since December 28th, 2019 the latest hitting January 7, 2020 a 6.4 earthquake with aftershocks creating even more destruction and fear.I am taking another relief trip to Puerto Rico bringing basic needs like water, canned food, flashlights, batteries, etc. I want to help as many people as possibleIt and for this I am asking for your help. It will take a lot more than what I plan to raise but it will bring relief to many on the island. I have already made one trip and what I saw was sad. Even though I was able to help out 24 families with the help of my kids and grandchildren, that was not enough and that it why I plan to travel to Puerto Rico one more time in the month of July. So please consider donating to this cause and bring some hope to those who feel that they have been forgotten. My goal is $20,000 but whatever I take back I know the Lord will multiply. Thank you in advance and May the Lord multiply your giving and bless you abundantly.

At the moment that I was getting ready to go home I was recording a CD to help raise funds. At this moment that project is complete and anyone who donates will receive a copy. This is all original material from my family and I am positive that you will enjoy the contents. This project is focused on Puerto Rican folklore specifically Plena.
