Puerto Rico Hurricane Maria Relief

As many of you know, Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico, leaving it’s millions of people without power and water, as well as a large amount homeless. The amount of devastation left behind by Hurricane Maria is indescribable. Millions of people are suffering and, due to the unresponsiveness of the US government, millions will continue to suffer.
Among those affected were my aunt and cousin (Davy and Julia Alvarez) who have lived in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico for 15 years. Luckily, they stayed with a relative during the entirety of Hurricane Maria, because, when they returned home, they found their house, and community, in ruins. We could not begin to imagine what my aunt and the millions of other people affected are feeling, we only hope to relieve some of that weight off their shoulders and help them move forward.
All of the money raised will go towards helping my aunt and her community. Any contribution, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated.
