Puerto Rican Relief

As many of you know, Puerto Rico was hit with a Category 4/5 hurricane this week. It was a catastrophic blow to an already weak infrastructure and total damages wont be known for weeks. Electricity is out across the whole island and telephone lines have been completely destroyed in many of the pueblos. In the early stages of assessing the damages, it was established that people on the island could be without power for 5-8 months. People have family whose homes have been flooded. People have familiy who are without homes due to mudslides throughout the island. People have family members that they have yet to hear from to know if they are safe. 
 
None of you owe me anything, but we are collecting money or supplies for a shipment I would like to send out as soon as logistical issues are worked out(UPS and FedEx aren't immediately shipping to PR) and I am able to. With any money collected, I would like to purchase flashlights, batteries, glow sticks, first aid kits, and anything else that the people of PR could find useful during this time. At this point, anything would be appreciated for the people of Puerto Rico. In advance, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for any considerations. #OremosPorPuertoRico
