Family helping Family

People are asking about ways to help with what's going on in Puerto Rico and we don't even know where to begin. What we do know is, as a result of Hurricane Maria, all of Puerto Rico is without power and water. While our immediate family there is safe, thier life has been directly impacted.

My siblings and I cannot stand by and wait for things to happen so we decided to start this account to raise money for two generators. Giving our father and grandmother access to electricity will help them in so many ways. We assure you that this will also assist the rest of our family there, including our step-mom, aunts, uncles and cousins. Domino effect, if you will. Our father will make sure of it.

Anything we raise is going to assist in buying them the generators and other supplies they so greatly need. We will work out the details to get it there. Any extra funds will go to repairs. If you prefer to donate items, please contact me directly for more information.

If you know a Puerto Rican, you know how big our pride is. Asking for help right now will not only give us peace of mind, so that we can communicate with them, but it will also give us faith that everything will be alright one day again.

We know some have lost everything. We are grateful for thier safety and just want to try and make the next couple of months easier. Thank you in advance for anything and everything.
