Hello All! We are asking for help to get our parents back to the States after the devastation they have undergone in Puerto Rico. Sadly, after weeks of no electricity, water, clear roads and limited access to gas and food, it has become clear they can no longer stay in their home, no matter how much they have hoped to remain in PR. We are asking for help with funds to secure plane tickets, as well as money for security deposit, rent in their new apartment, and other incidentals such as home goods, clothes for winter, etc. Unfortunately due to the nature of the situation they will have to leave almost everything behind except for a suitcase for travel, causing them to basically start from scratch up here. Many of you have already asked for ways to help, but due to the lack of communication, difficulty in obtaining any sent funds and inabilty to safely send supplies we have not been able to provide a clear answer til now on how anyone could be of any real assistance. If you have any desire to donate to a very real and specific form of Hurricaine relief, please consider making a donation to help with this transition. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! and if you still have a little goodness left in you, also consider a small donation to any of the organizations in this link to help the millions of other Puerto Ricans facing such insurmountable obstacles and that don't have the means to arrange to go elsewhere under these extremely devastating conditions. We appreciate all the love and support and hope we can get Yeyo and Annie out of these conditions as soon as possible! Thank you so much for your time.
Much Love from the Otero and Rodriguez Familieshttp://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/can-help-hurricane-victims-puerto-rico/
