Rebuild Marco's family home

Marco, was one of the people affected by the September 19th earthquake in Mexico. His wife found herself in their family home when the earthquake hit, and she died trying to shield her one year old baby girl from the collapsing building. Marco lost his two princesses that day, and the only thing that keeps him going is their little boy, who is all he has left now. 

Marco es uno de los afectados por el terremoto del 19 de Septiembre en Morelos. Su esposa se encontraba en la casa de su familia cuando empezó el temblor y murió mientras intentaba proteger a su bebé de un año. Marco perdió a sus dos princesas ese día, y lo que lo sostiene ahora es el amor por su hijo. Esta campaña ayudará a la reconstucción de la casa, en donde con su ayuda, se trabajará con un arquitecto para llevar a cabo la obra y ayudar a regresar un poco la estabilidad a la familia de Marco.

On the days after the earthquake it was really hard for me to see my country comming together to help out, and for me to be away, wanting to help but not knowing how. When I heard Marco's story, who is a friend's coworker, I knew we could all come together and help him. This campaign will aid in the reconstruction of his home. By donating directly, we will ensure that the money is spent wisely, and that the transition can be as quick as possible.
Lets please come together and help him rebuild, and make this transition a little easier for someone who lost everything in the blink of an eye.

The picture below has gone viral, and it's from a soldier who broke down after realizing that the woman, Marco's wife, who they had spent hours trying to rescue, had not make it, and was holding her little daughter, who she died trying to protect. Marco did everything he could to find this soldier, and wrote to him, "Thank you, because without you knowing it, you gave me an opportunity to say goodbye to my wife and daughter, thank you for risking your life under the ruble. I am told that when you saw her little arm under the ruble you screamed in agony, and you shed tears as if it would have been your own family .... I salute you... I will always be thankful".
