Generator for Luis

Hello, I am starting this gofundme account in order to purchase a Generac electric generator and to personally deliver it to a young person who is in desperate need of it.  This young persons name is Luis Joel Velez Serrano who is 19 years old, and suffers from cerebral palsy.  He currently has to have his food processed and pureed and since there is no electricity in the town the family is having a difficult time.  Luis currently weighs 29 pounds. The current cost of the generator is $699.00 plust tax it would come out to $760.52. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Generac-Rapid-Start-5500-Running-Watt-Portable-Generator-with-Engine/50205129?cm_mmc=SCE_PLA-_-SeasonalOutdoorLiving-_-Generators-_-50205129:Generac&CAWELAID=&kpid=50205129&CAGPSPN=pla&store_code=1624&k_clickID=011cb401-4d93-42a2-93d2-83f34eca70ac&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIndv7pqD91gIVAR6GCh07_A0lEAkYASABEgK7CfD_BwE 

I am attempting to raise $1000.00 to include shipping costs and set up.   My goal is to not only raise the money to purchase this generator for Luis, but I have been included as a Hurricane Relief responder representing a law enforcement agency to fly to Puerto Rico on Monday morning October 23, 2017 and returning October 26, 2017.  I am currently working out the logistics on having the generator transported so that I can personally deliver it to Luis and his family.   Thank you all for your generousity, compassion and understanding.
