Supplies for Puerto Rico

My friend was in Puerto Rico during the initial devistation of Hurricane Maria.  He was lucky that he already lived in the continental US and worked for a company that had an emergency response team to get him and his family out of Puerto Rico.

The remaining 3 millions people of Puerto do not have the same forture.  Over half of the island is still with out electricity or clean water.

Back to my friend... he is going to Puerto Rico to bring supplies to his mom.  I asked him "if we could give him more money, can he take more bags to provide for the larger community."  The response: "YES!"

I'm seeking to raise $1,000 over the next 48 hours for my friend to take more supplies to Puerto Rico directly.   He will fill luggage bags full of items that are extremely hard to come by on an island that has been without basic needs for a month now (e.g. hand sanitizer, baby wipes, bug repellant, et al).

Anything will help ( a $3 donation will buy hand sanitizer)... thank you for your consideration.
