Rescue my family from Puerto Rico

Last week Puerto Rico was torn apart by Hurricane Maria after already suffering damage caused by  Hurricane Irma. The entire island is without power and most people still don't have access to clean water. 

Help has been dispatched at a snail's pace and most of the shipping containers with supplies are stuck at the ports.  

I'm in Sacramento. We're attempting to fly multiple family members out of PR to Florida where my mother will be taking them in. My elderly grandmother will be one. She's in need of medication and the nursing home she's living at is barely surviving on a generator.  There are very few flights going in and out of PR at the moment and the few that are are insanely expensive...ranging from $700+ to $3000+. 

Please help us get our family members away from the devastation. Money will go toward flights, medication needed and food for the next few months.

Any amount helps. Thanks everyone.
