Help Me Help My Family in PR

I need your help.  As many of you know, Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria on September 20 leaving the entire island without electricity and communications capabilities. 

After three long agonizing days without knowing the status of my entire family in Puerto Rico, I finally heard from my sister on Saturday September 23 and she stated that the family was shaken but everyone survived the hurricane.   As of today, my family is without electricity and adequate water, food, and fuel supply. 

I am raising money to purchase standby and portable generators, battery operated lamps, batteries, and anything else that my family may need.  It is with your support; I will be able to help my family in this time of crisis.
