Family Hurricane Maria Relief

$8,775 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 92 people in 11 months
My entire family is in Puerto Rico, surviving with limited water and food waiting for emergency rescue to get to them. Their homes have been destroyed by flooding and wind ripping their roof off. We are not a wealthy family and this will be a multi year struggle for them to get back to a place where they feel safe again. They want to go home. They have no idea how long it will be before power is restored and life is back to normal. I want to be able to send home some aid so that this enormous burden seems at the very least survivable for them. I wish I had more to send, but I don't and I am asking for your help. They are fantastic people and we all need a little help sometime. Please give what you can, every dollar helps. Máquina Coffee Roasters will also be raising some money for them. My heart is there on that island with them.

Hello everyone. Maquina Coffee Roasters will continue to raise funds for Puerto Rico in the coming months. Thank you so much for every single one on your donations, with this I close the campaign. I will be sending my family members these donations in order for them to start planning how to best utilize them and help them in their unique situations. Their homes have been damaged and everyone on the island must now rebuild. Thank you so much for your heart and generosity.

I am so grateful that the goal has been exceeded. Wow. I am humbled. Thank you so much everyone. Puerto Rican families need as much help as they can get, and tho tragically slow response is hurting the island, the individual efforts from ordinary citizens of the world, relief groups and companies has been beautiful to watch. Thank you so much.

For transparency sake, I will be withdrawing the donations and personally sending them to my family members. I would love to do it personally, but if not possible, once the period is over and the power is back on in the island I will be sending them all the donations. Thank you so much for any help you can give or send.
The folks who will be receiving these funds are my aunt Carmen Socorro Cabán and Wanda Cabanellas. They are my closest relatives after my father and mother passed away several years ago. These funds will go to replenishing water and food, purchasing generators and repairing their homes so that they can return to their homebase and start rebuilding their lives. This is going to be a long journey for them, but this will give them a small cushion of comfort. Thank you.
