Joel's Parents Rebuilding Fund

Hello, My name is Joel Morales, from Tampa Florida. My parents live in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. They are very simple people, they dont have much, but always, always fought to make sure me and my brother strived and bettered ourselves, they sacrificed a lot while we were growing up.  

Hurricane Maria has left a heavy mark on our family and as of right now we are unable to tally the loss. Part of the roof is gone, the house is flooded and the furniture is gone. 
My mom has a broken leg to make things worse on a two story home. I need to get to Puerto Rico as soon as it is possible and make sure repairs are started, they are taken care off and rebuild their lives to a little normalcy. I need these funds ASAP, this is of extreme urgency. Your donations will be use for housing (repair of the current house or relocation) , repair materials, equipment, food, travel expenses for me as I come and go to the island, replacement of furniture, clothing, etc. I will be withdrawing and using your donations immediatelly as the need is urgent. 

I will forever sacrifce for my loved ones and I will never be too proud to ask for your help, specially when it comes to my parents , family and friends. I will forever be grateful for any help you can provide us. 

Thank you.
