Help for my family in Puerto Rico

Hi, my name is Ian Febres and I am from Newburgh, Indiana. As you all know Maria, the devastating category 4 hurricane, made landfall on Puerto Rico a week ago. The effects on Puerto Rico are catastrophic. The island is without power and the winds from hurricane Maria have virtually destroyed everything in its path. This humanitarian crisis is very close to my heart due to the fact that members of my family are a few of the many victims of Maria. Their town of San Lorenzo is located in the southeast section of the Island, which took the first hit from Maria. Communication is sparse, but I know the damage is extensive. I am raising money to help my family in San Lorenzo, my grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins. This money will help to mend their damages and help them obtain necessities such as food, water, clothes, and anything else Maria has taken away. I love my family very much and want to ease their suffering as much as I can. The money will be sent to my family in Puerto Rico as soon as I can via wire transfer. Any and every donation is appreciated.
