Direct support for Puerto Rico

Hey everyone!

Have you ever wanted to donate to a cause, but held off because you didn't really know where your money was going(ie large charity organizations (yes they do great things, but its hard to tell how you helped))?  Me too, that's why I have decided to take things into my own hands and make a real difference!

Hurricane Maria tore Puerto Rico apart with no expectation of electricity for at least 3 months.  Life is based on survival at this point!

With my own money (no money donated will go to myself, my travel, or any personal expenses) I purchased a one way ticket to Puerto Rico, Oct. 6th .  I am buying (and taking donations from companies) food, water filters, medicines, batteries, and tons of other items people will need in the coming months.  On my own I will have enough to make the trip worth it, but I figured I could help YOU donate directly through me.   ALL money raised is being spent on those items being given out right from me to the people who need it most.

My plan includes traveling to the areas that the bigger organizations will have a hard time getting to.  It is much easier for me as an individual to travel around to difficult areas when compared to the large operations consisting of more people.

You will be able to track my progress and SEE where you donations go and the impact they make.

Donate if you can! If you can't, no pressure, please share and spread the word!
