Puerto Rico and I need you

Dear Friends,

As you are all aware Puerto Rico has been devasted by Hurricane Maria. In an effort to come together and help my family, friends and the rest of my hometown of Aguada, PR, I am asking for your help raising money to provide basic necessities for these people to live, for rebuilding, and for securing the city, homes, and lives of family, friends, and neighbors in Aguada. All that I can raise goes to the right hands and all the emergency relief items to families in need.

My hometown is more than 2 hours away from San Juan. Food, water, medicine, and gasoline are not getting there.

I am planning to go there in the next two weeks (by October 8th) to bring all I can with me, and to deliver the money raised through donations by all of us to the Mayor of Aguada, Puerto Rico.

Right now our call to action is for $$ donations to help us get these supplies to Aguada, PR safely and into hands that need help the most.

Please help as best you can. No amount is too small - anything will help this incredible cause and the people in Aguada that have been so drastically affected.

Thank you so much for considering to help this cause.

Love to you all,
