Pray for Puerto Rico

My name is Paige Nielsen and I am from Lincoln, Nebraska. A couple of my family members were in Puerto Rico at the time Hurricane Maria hit. Through their story and how they were affected by being stuck in Puerto Rico, my heart aches for all those who live there and recovery will take years for some finacially, and emotionally. With many areas still without power, drinking water, and farms flooded, it will take months or even years to recover their already in debt economy. My family has arrived home safe, which makes it much more clear that our lives aren't as affected as those who live there. After Hurricane Irma and the devastation it caused Houston, Hurricane Maria came and completely destroyed Puerto Rico, and they are still in trouble.

I am setting up a gofundme to 1) donate to the cause and 2) offer two signed Suwon FMC jerseys. One Jersey will be given to the top donation and the other Jersey will be given to someone even if you donate as little as $1.

I am giving you this site to donate and I will transfer those funds from my account directly to the "Puerto Rico Hurricane relief" program on the website: https://hispanicfederation.org/donate

Let's help Puerto Rico in any way we can face this long, expensive recovery to restore power, homes, and heal the hearts of many.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
