Following the most recent hurricanes that impacted Puerto Rico, many of the inhabitants are still without drinking water and electricity. Can you imagine your day without either of these? Especially in the tropics where you need air conditioning? How long has it been since you have done your laundry by hand? They have endured weeks in this condition, not to mention the devastation to their beautiful island.
The leaders of 3A Press of which Marie is the President and co-owner have purchased 100 generators to assist their employees. They are ordered, paid for and will be sent to Puerto Rico on a container that will be shipped from Florida.
I asked Marie, once we could communicate, 'what was wanted and needed? ' Always thinking of others, she gave me a list of what will help her employees at this time. Many live in remote areas of the island and some have lost their homes.
I am establishing this fund so we can get some of the things the people of Puerto Rico need in the wake of the post hurricane challenges. Marie will deliver the items personally after we get them to Puerto Rico.
Here is how it will work:
1) Make your donation here. We have to move quickl
2) With the cash donations, I will purchase the needed items on Amazon and have them sent to our contact in Florida to be put on the container with the generators.
3) The container will arrive in Puerto Rico under Marie's name on Friday October 20th.
4) Review this list of what is 'wanted and needed' and if you know resources who can provide any of the items, contact me and I will provide you shipping details.
Here is the list of what is 'wanted and needed' that I will purchase with the donations:
To assist with the generators:
1) 5 Gallon Poly Gas Can
2) 4 Cycle Engine Oil
3) Extension Chord's
To be given to individuals:
1) Bottled Water
2) Battery Radios with Batteries
3) Water Filters
4) Battery Fans with Batteries
5) Flash Lights
6) First Aid Items
7) Women's Toiletries
8) Hygiene Items
9) Non perishable/canned foods.

Ready to eat protein.
Non perishavle, pasteurized milk.

Thank you in advance for your support of this effort. Marie does so much good for so many. I am thrilled we now get to do some good for her and some of the folks of Puerto Rico whose lives will never be the same.
In the midst of so much tragedy, we will do good. One person at at time. One heart at a time. One donation at a time. One container at a time. One generator at a time. One friend at a time.
Humanity is cool!
Let's fill that container,
