My entire family ( father's and mother's) is from a "Barrio" ( subdivision of a municipality) called Barrio Ceiba which is part of a small town called Cidra. Anyone that is from a small town knows that the "Barrio's" are the last to get help or even ask for help. They are such humble humans that just make ends meet with what they can get.
I took my 3 kids and husband this spring to Puerto Rico and they fell in love with the Island. My husband who isn't Puertorican was mesmorized at the love people had for him. He couldn't belive the open arms welcome they gave us and what little they had they shared with us.
Well today those are the same people that lost everything. While I am not rich other wise I would just send them everything.
I am trying to get them generators and portable stoves and basic things so they can survive while help gets to them.
Please spread the word so I can somehow help these families that are in dier need of basic life necesities.
I know it is hard to donate with out knowing me but I am speaking from my heart. I promise anyone that puts it in the notes I can email you pictures and receipts of all we spend it on. I have no other intention that to go and help my fellow Boricuas from Barrio Ceiba.
We got a company that can take them a pallet full of things so we plan on getting generators, some water, clothes, basic things for the ones that lost it all and any medicine we can get to them.
