Un Rayito De Sol

Un rayito de sol, (A ray of Light) was born from conversations with friends who wanted to help,  and do something meaningful for Puerto Rico. I kept waiting for something that we all could offer, the idea came a few days ago.  My dear friend, Teresa called and asked for a "solar lamp", an item needed by so many. Tomorrow I'm sending Teresa  her rayito de Sol, ...
Me and others are committed to send as many "solar lamps" as we could buy, and distrubute to the people in rural areas in Isabela y Aguadilla. 
We are delivering the lamps ourselves and we have "boots on the ground", ready to distrubute to those in need.
Research was done and we are hoping to get,

as it comes with phone charger as well. 
I'm very grateful to all my friends for your support during this time, I'am not alone on my love for my Puerto Rico!
Abrazos!
