Hurricane Maria relief fund

This is my family, we are 8 siblings and my mom and dad. They live in Canovanas, Puerto Rico one of the many cities devastated by hurricane María on sep 20 2017.
My family withstood the hurricane in the house that we built over the past 20yrs and everything was lost in the blink of an eye. Trees fell over our house and cars, water poured out of the power outlets, they lost electricity, have no running water, and almost everything they own is damaged. My dad is a woodworker and he lost everything on his workshop as well. Which means that we don't even have tools to start rebuilding the house. The repair process will be a slow and -at the moment- unaffordable one.

Anything that you can spare will be of great help. I believe that we rise by lifting others and I know that good will come to you when you are kind. I ask for your help today to aid a family in need of kind hearts.

Please share this in any way you can think of.
