Familia Semidey's Hurricane Fund

As many of you are aware, Hurricane Maria devastated most of Puerto Rico and has affected the lives of many including some of my own family members. They are still without power and water and it is unclear when it possibly might return. My familia, los Semideys, are a tough bunch of folks and they are survivors. However considering the situation it is unlikely that they will be able to return to work anytime soon and budgeting is already tight. I am looking to secure funds that I can send them so they can make it thru these trying times and provide an extra cushion in any which way we can.

Update 1: Wow we initially started at $500 and blew past that! Thank you so much! I've gone ahead and adjusted the goal to 2K! This is amazing you all! Thank you!

Update 2: We made it to 2k! I've sent over the first 2k but I got news today that not only will my grandfather be unable to return to work soon, but also my aunts. So I'm going to extend the campaign till the end of October till the end of the month to send additional funds! Thank you to everyone who has given and lets keep it going!

Anything you can give is appreciated, $3,000  would go incredible long way.  Also if you also haven't done, please consider donating to other agencies that are assiting my fellow Boriquas la El Concilio:


Thank you,
