Help us, help Puerto Rico

My name is Vanessa and with my friends Kim, & Arlyn we have come together to volunteer to help Puerto Rico, after the destructive path of hurricane Maria has left the island. We have the opportunity to help those that are in need.
Here’s our pitch, I was born and raised on this Island. In which I like to call my sanctuary. We don’t have millions but what we do have is the opportunity to volunteer ourselves to reach the people in need.
We have gathered and collected many supplies and sent 6 pallets to Puerto Rico to those towns that are in need. Yet, that is not enough. This is going to be a long recovery for the people on this island. There are many that still need our help. With your help and faith in us, we will make sure to make a difference on the ground and make sure every dollar goes to this relief.
Our goal is to get food, water, tarps, baby supplies, baby food,medicine and get to those families that have no communication and need help cleaning their homes. Making it to at least 2 towns a day for a week of our stay. If I could also get the opportunity to fly anyone that is in need of medical attention this will also go towards it.
But we need your help. We need to rent a truck, flights, gas, and supplies to make this trip happen!
We promise to update you with the expenses being made, make a video of every part of our journey. Most important is to make you proud of what we are doing.
Thank you in advance for anything you can do. Many prayers are needed throughout our journey!
