Messfam and Helping Hands for Puerto Rico are helping restore a park, renovate a school, gather new school equipment, furniture, materials and supplies for donation to schools belonging to the Instituto Nueva Escuela.
#Messfam represents the concept that no matter how much we think we have our lives together, we are all “Still a mess," encouraging people to live life messy, to own their failures fearlessly and to achieve their highest potential. We promote equality, unity and opportunity and are dedicated to doing everything in our power to assist Puerto Rico during the rebuilding process and beyond.
"Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success." – C.S. Lewis
With your assistance, we will clean and restore an abandoned park in Aguadilla, PR, supply children with educational essentials they deserve (such as; backpacks, journals, erasers, pencils, pens, crayons, water bottles and nutritious foods), and help equip teachers with materials needed.
We want to ensure students are receiving the best education that can be offered by helping restore one of the many schools that have already been closed in part with the Instituto Nueva Escuela.
Additionally, the 1st annual Puerto Rico P.R.O.U.D. Festival will be curated for the youth on December 22nd, 2018, filled with inspirational music from local musicians that motivates children and families to persevere, expressing that through our collective strength and effort Puerto Rico will prosper. This will be both a grand reopening of the park that has been closed due to the storm, and a back to school event for residents of Aguadilla and Isabela.
We are extremely grateful to be in a position to help and want to provide the future leaders of the world with the best learning and living environment possible. It is by investing in the generations belonging to the future that will help boost opportunities and create upward economic mobility.
