Puerto Rico Family Hurricane Relief

A team member and friend of mine is in need of our help.

Carlos is incredibly kind and one of the most giving people I have ever met. He will go out of his way to help someone, especially his family, even if he doesn’t have a lot to give. I have heard stories over an over of how Carlos has done everything he can in order to help support his family in California as well as Puerto Rico because they’re not able to support themselves due to multiple issues. Now, Carlos needs our support.

Carlos’s sister and two young nieces living in Puerto Rico were recently affected by Hurricane Irma and have been displaced due to losing the roof on their home as well as the road to their home being partly washed out.

Carlos is the main financial supporter of his sister and nieces due to family struggle as well as severe health complications his sister has and continues to experience. His nieces even look up to him as their main father figure, even with the great distance between them.

Carlos and his family need our help, and quickly.
Just recently, Carlos funded having the roof replaced as it was in dire need of repair, and now because of the hurricane, the roof is completely gone. The house is structurally sound otherwise, as far as they can tell; however, until the roof is fixed, their belongings inside are exposed to the elements and they’re not able to return home until it’s repaired. 

Carlos has given everything he has and has been stretched to the max financially to support and provide for his family, especially his sister and nieces in Puerto Rico. With the recent devastation, he needs our help to get his family’s home back in living condition and hopefully pad his own pocket some after giving everything to family.

Any amount helps and is appreciated beyond words. There is no worse feeling in the world than wanting to help someone in need and not being able to. A little bit from each of us will mean the whole world to Carlos and his family.

Thank you so very much for your donation.

Please note, a portion of every donation goes toward fees associated with gofundme.com.

My name is Kristina and I work with Carlos in Seattle, WA. More specifically, Carlos is a member of my team.

Donations to this cause will help to rebuild the roof on Carlos's sister's home in Puerto Rico as well as help fund him getting her a generator, a camping shower, and  additional basic need items (food, hygeine items, clothing, etc.) as the island of Puerto Rico is completely without power and water.

The donations will be withdrawn Wednesday, 9/20/17 by myself with my own information and immediately transferred electronically to Carlos, or he will be able to log in and enter his personal info for the withdrawal and receive the funds directly.
