Puerto Rico Reconstruction Effort

Hello Peeps! My brother Gustavo Diaz and I opened a Co-Living space, HustleHouses in Puerto Rico on August 4th. After Hurricane Irma, and 10 days without electricity, we put our last savings into purchasing a power generator, pushing the 250lbs generator up 7 flights of stairs, and then opening our home to those looking for refuge from our neighboring islands. Now, after the passage and devastation of Hurricane Maria, we luckily faced minimal damage to our space. And, as we see and feel the devastation of our island with these blurred eyes covered in tears, we will not accept to stand idle. We will not accept to stay comfortable. And, we will not accept to become complaisant within the situation we ALL Boricuas find ourselves in.

Therefore WE ARE RETROFITTING, our Co-Living space, the HustleHouses, to fit AT LEAST 14 volunteers amongst our 7 bedrooms in the upcoming weeks and months. We have prepared with cisterns and power generators but will need help from YOU and the COMMUNITY to cover the cost of maintaining all for at least 1-MONTH. Us, amongst others throughout the US have begun coordinating efforts to bring in specialized personnel, supplies, and resources to the island, and plan to use the location as an Head Quarters to help the community and everyone around us.

To keep up the power generators, the cisterns, and enough supplies for the 14 volunteers for 1-Month, we're looking to raise $4,500.00 in the upcoming days. We'll track every expenditure on a Google Excel sheet as well as all work performed by the volunteers in an open and transparent manner that anyone can access and see from anywhere.

If you can support us with $1, a share, a like, or a comment, we will ensure to put it all to good use. We will hustle to see this island rebuilt again. We would never ask for handouts or any type of capital, yet acknowledging there are no planes out of the island until next week, the government hasn't stopped rescuing families from flooded areas, but resources are pouring in slowly. Therefore, we're rolling up our sleeves and working to restore the island we all love so much NO MATTER WHAT.
