Rebuilding Puerto Rico in Realtime

Hurricane Maria has devastated our beautiful island of Puerto Rico.  The island is still without power . Many families as well as animals are left waiting for help. As of yet there still isnt enough help on the island. Please help in donating whatever amount you can in efforts of rebuilding Puerto Rico.  Whether its 1 dollar or perhaps at this time it is difficult for you to donate. We ask you then to share this campaign. With the help of you we can Give our Mothers, fathers , children the help they need. The Freakin Rican Restaurant will be going to Puerto Rico and making sure the funds collected thru this campaign as well as a donation made from a percentage of all sales thru our online store which is will be used to help those in need.  As stated in our facebook live video we want to rebuild from within.  It is our belief that in order for Puerto Rico to come back stronger from this we must show support for the businesses that have been impacted there.  Instead of bringing food and supplies from outside the island. We will use funds to support the growth and rebuilding from within. But note we will be coming with lots of supplies but we must  give back to their economy so that the island can stand on its own from its own resources.
We will update this campaign and keep you all up to date with the progress and allocation of all funds once collected.
I personally would like to thank you for taking the time out and helping our beautiful island get back to normalcy.  I plan on personally taking the trip out there with a team once I have been assured it is safe to start rebuilding.  As of today they still have no communication and electricity in most of the island. Many of us still have no word on the damage caused to our family and friends.  Needless to say they are in dire need of any help they can get. So please find it in your heart to donate. You'll certainly be changing someones tragic story. God bless you and thank you!

Con todo corazon le doy mil gracias por su ayuda
