Flight of Supplies to Puerto Rico

I'm booking a private plane ($8,000) and filling it with supplies to head to a remote area of Puerto Rico on 19th October.  The supplies are going to several families whose relatives have reached out to us, and the bulk of what we are sending is being handed directly to Jason Maddy and his team of Volunteer U.S. Army Vets.

Our plan is to land in Mayaguez to drop off the supplies.  I am personally delivering the supplies, and am an EMT who is offering 4 free seats on the plane back to Florida to anyone in need of evacuation.  

This is our way of seeing these donations go straight to the people affected instead of to large corporate charities that have tons of overhead.  

So far from our donations, we've purchased 40 community LifeStraws capable of filtering lake water at about 3 gallons of water an hour.  Each is about $100.  We are also purchasing Individual Lifestraws which will provide an individual up to 500 gallons of safe drinking water.

Even a donation of $17 will buy a LifeStraw and every $100 will provide a family or small community with clean,safe drinking water.

We are keeping everyone here updated on what is being purchased and we will be updating everyone here frequently.  We want you to see the impact that you are making.  

We are trying to purchase smart items that are light, and easy to hand-carry.  We are limited on weight and space in our plane.  If you want to send items, we are in need diapers, baby formula, baby food pouches.  Please do not send cans or large items, these items need to be hand carried over rough dangerous terrain.

Also.. please email me if you have family or friends in the area in need.  I want to make an impact and know that these supplies are going to help people and not get lost in the shuffle.
