Support rebuild after #Maria

My name is Johanna Soto ( and I am a certified coach, training facilitator, and speaker. I'm also the CEO/founder of Lēdərship LLC in Puerto Rico ( 

This beautiful Island is my home, and as you know we got devastated by Hurricane Maria. As a believer that life is a journey of empowerment for a lifetime of significance, I have made my mission for recovery to help repair and rebuild 10 homes and two shelters for homeless youth. For this project, I'm asking for $15,000 and I'll match dollar by dollar up to the same amount.

Your donations will go towards helping 10 teachers from Puerto Rico who lost their homes and making repairs to two emergency shelters for homeless youth (Arecibo and Hatillo) due to Hurricane Maria. The teachers are employed by Head Start programs across the Island and they are currently canvasing communities to provide humanitarian relief and support to the children they serve, even when they are going through the same situation. Help me provide support to these anonymous heroes. Let's build wonderful things together for a better future, for a better country! 

All contributions count! There are many ways you can help! Donate money, your time, your good thoughts, and specially share this campaing with your friends and contacts. I'm posting videos and updates on this page and on my social media, to keep you informed of our progress. 

If you have any questions, please contact us. I'll be more than happy to answer them. =)

Thank you for your help and support. Together we are better and stronger.

In gratitude and success,
