Help our home Puerto Rico Villalba!

Hurricane Maria category 4 has destroyed a place we call home Puerto Rico. Last we heard our village is unrecognizable, destroyed, and flooded. Many of our family and friends live there, I have grandparents who live there with serious health conditions, and since the hurricane hit we have not been able to get in contact with anyone on the island, nor do we know if everyone is ok. We all feel devastated, and helpless. Seeing the pain my parents are going through puts a heavy pain on my heart. We do know that once this passes over our love ones will need our help in rebuilding their lives. So I am asking for family and friends every where to come together to help our Loved ones, that will need as much help in rebuilding their lives in Puerto Rico. Anything will help so please donate whatever you can. I am also asking everyone to share this post to help spread the word. We want to get as much help to our loved ones as soon as we can. Thank you keep all in your prayers!
