La Perla Christmas

Donation protected
Hey guys, it's me Silent and I wanted to let you know about a special project i have in the works that I need your help with. 

In March of this year, I set out to continue filming for my first documentary in La Perla, Puerto Rico. La Perla is one of Puerto Rico's most notorious "slums" and is unfortunately known for negative aspects. The goal of my documentary was (and is) to shed light on the positivity within the community. I spent a month living in La Perla and It opened my eyes and absolutely changed my life. I witnessed a lot of love, pride and humbleness between the people. The residents are eager to overcome the negative stigma and show that they are normal people just trying to survive through hardships. 

I really wanted to give back in some way and when I recently showed my family some footage, we decided to do a Christmas Fundraiser. La Perla has a community center that houses pretty much all activities (Karate, Computer, Arts & Crafts etc.) and we would love to gift the kids and adults gym and sporting equipment to help keep them active. Items we would like to buy include basketballs, footballs, bats & baseballs, roller skates, jump ropes, weights, etc. We also want to get a printer for their computer and toys for the children, among other things. I figured this would be an amazing way to show my gratitude to the community, for opening their hearts and allowing me to tell their story. 

With your help, We will be able to give back and brighten up an already amazing community of people. I thank you for your support and hope that we can exceed our goals and show the world what love and support can really do for others.
