Suppuerto Rico Hurricane Relief

The hospitality industry is comprised of many small to large families of professionals who look out for one another on an everyday basis. Right now, families that do the same for one another are suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria on their home island of Puerto Rico.

Our industry is also an interwoven network of these families that come together to support others in need on a regular basis, which is why #suppuertorico was created. We are here to make a small impact on the everyday lives of the residents of Puerto Rico as they start to pick up the pieces left behind by such a catastrophic storm.

My name is Jeff Wilson, and my wife, Marta, and I are hospitality industry professionals in Chicago, IL. We have very close relationships with some of the industry professionals on the island, and also consider Puerto Rico a second home with the warmth and hospitality we have received while visiting the island. Those things, paired with Marta's Puerto Rican heritage,  have compelled us to help the island that we love in any way possible.

We will be taking financial donations as well as setting up specials, promotions, discounts, and events at our establishments. 

Please donate to our GoFundMe and/or provide any press information that may help us spread the word to encourage as much support to Puerto Rico. Also, use the hashtag #suppuertorico to spread the word via social media.

We will be donating monetary funds to United For Puerto Rico (http://unidosporpuertorico.com/en/), Save The Children's Hurricane Maria Children's Relief Fund (http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXMGIpI4E/b.9535655/k.98EA/Hurricane_Maria.htm) & The Center for Popular Democracy's Hurricane Maria Community Recovery Fund (https://connect.clickandpledge.com/w/Form/cb4a3c78-5694-4324-bead-42c8ad94c1bf).

Any of the money received during this campaign will be withdrawn by me, and directly deposited to the account provided by the above listed organizations.


Thank you, and let’s make a difference!
