Jojutla Morelos Relief Fund

Hi, you all may know me as Checke my handle in the room. My name is Ezequiel Quiroz. I currently comute between San Antonio, Tx and Chihuahua Mexico and I am trying to raise money for a very close friend from the University who lost his house and his retail business that was next door to his house in the earthquake. He lives in Jojutla, Morelos one of the most affected sites of the recent earthquake. Jojutla is a small town in a small state, and unlike Mexico City has received very little help - the bulk of it is going to Mexico City.
I am starting this fundraiser to help him and his family get back on their feet. His name is Ernesto Jimenez. Thankfully, they are in good health and only suffered damage to their home and place of business.  The funds raised will go to help rebuild what they can and most importantly, restart their retail business so he can help himself and his family.  Sort of give him the tools he needs to fish instead of giving him a fish.  Any amount helps, especially in these times.
I estimate $25,000, $10,000 in building costs and $15,000 in lost inventory. Money will go directly to him, instead of other relief funds that have to manage overhead costs.  So what you give, minus the gofundme charge is 100% relief fund.  The funds will be transfered to my checking account, exchanged into MXN and wired directly to Ernesto's Mexican Bank account.
Thank you in advance for your help.
