My Family in Puerto Rico Needs Help

After Hurricane Irma and Maria , all communication with my family in Puerto Rico was lost.  Each and everyday photos of the devastation flood the media and I can only pray that my family is ok.  It has been over a week that I have not heard from my sister Sonia and my niece Yasiries. Sonia is a single mother who has struggled to support her and her daughter. Because of a grave injury, work opportunities are very limited. They will be the beneficiaries of this fund.

My niece Yasiries was looking forward to being a college graduate within the next couple months so that she can get a job in criminology and help create a better life for her and her mom. Sonia is the caretaker to other family members and is unable to travel to TN.

 Currently, they live in Naguabo, a small town at the base of the rainforest that took the full impact of Irma's  fury.  Naguabo, along with a majority of the island has been demolished. I am asking for donations because I know my family has lost any hope of a better life and now is in desperate need of financial help. May God bless you for your kindness.

I am Elixa Beaumont from Franklin Tn. Mother of three wonderful children and married to John for 18 years. and the recipient is my sister's family.  The funds will be spent to offer relief in the wake of the hurricane damage to my family and those they aid.  I plan to withdraw funds and send them to my sister as internet and electricity is restored. The funds will be sent electronically as soon as her cell phone is back up or via a certified check in her name.
