VPM Rebuild Rincon Fund

We are so grateful for all your thoughts and kind hearted messages about our beloved spot in Rincon, Puerto Rico.  We are so thankful that our extended family and friends are now safe and already working to rebuild their lives.  

Over the past few years, we  have fostered many connections with local businesses and community organizations on this beautiful island.  Many of you have spent time each year soaking up the vibes that this special place has to offer.  Now its our time to return the favor.  

Our intention with this fundraiser is to provide direct aid that will allow Rincon to get back on its feet as soon as possible providing the services and experiences that drive its tourist-based economy.  

Over the last week, we've been in close communication with our team in Rincon to access the needs of the community and are now ready to create and distribute a Rincon-focused relief fund.  100% of the proceeds of this fund will be given directly to local Rincon businesses and individuals to help them rebuild, and get back to doing what they do best.  

With your help, we look forward to turning this devastating storm into an opportunity to give back to all  those who've welcomed us into this special community.

Thank you for joining us.

Roxanne and Russ

UPDATE to our FUNDRAISING effort for PUERTO RICO! We have partnered with local businesses: Katarina Sail, Alert Security, and HQJ Plumbing and have purchased 210 water cisterns that are scheduled to arrive this week! We are happy to report that Russ Scully and Chuck Patterson are heading to Puerto Rico on Thursday to join the team in Rincon to distribute, install and fill the 350 gallon cisterns throughout the 10 Barrios in Rincon. We believe this sustainable project will provide water to many families in Rincon, now and later. We have yet to reach our goal so if you are willing and able to support this project-- please do. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for joining us in this effort. Russ will be posting progress of this project via our Villa Playa Maria instagram account. Make sure to follow along and share this post far and wide! It takes a village and we are so grateful.

Be well,
Roxanne and Russ
