Portable Water Purification Units

YOU ARE SO GENEROUS! Gracias a todos!

We surpassed our original goal of $1000 and have set a new goal of $3000.  In addition to Water Purification Units we would love to bring funds for chainsaws to help remove debris and a generator that can be donated to a local school. 

Each chainsaw costs $169.00 and the generators are $799.00 each. 

We are humbled (although not surprised) by how generous and kind each gift is.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico 2 weeks ago and many people are still without clean drinking water. 

Please consider donating a watever you can to help us purchase portable water filtration units that have a 60 gallon capacity.  These units can be used in areas of Puerto Rico that are without potable water as a result of Hurricane Maria.   Each system costs $200. We are working with a local non-proift called ISER Caribe that we have worked with in the past.  Your donations are donations are tax deductible!
Gloria and I are returning to the island the end of October and will take photos of your donations at work!
