Hello everyone, 

Gabys family needs your help. Hurricane Maria just got done destroying Puerto Rico and her family got hit as hard as they could've. Their houses got flooded, trees were knocked down and laying on their roofs, cars are damaged and who knows what else.  We were able to talk to them yesterday but they have lost all sort of communication as of Thursday 10am. They are physically fine but extremely exhausted and hopeless. They have no power for at least 4 months. Every market is empty. Gaby and I are going next week as soon as they open up the airport and will try to help as much as we can. We are planning on taking dry foods, batteries, and as much as we can get through the airport to help them start over.  We will use the funds we raise to purchase food, batteries, tools, furniture, and materials to repair whats broken. Your help is extremely appreciated. We will get through this, we won’t give up and they won’t be alone.  Thanks for your help. 

 

Guillermo, Gaby and all of her family.

Another successful day today. Lots of stuff done.
We got the chainsaw, gas tanks, extension cords, and we also went to the airport and talked to DELTA.
So we had added up all the things we have and roughly we have about 1200 lbs. We are allowed to have up to two 75 lb bag in luggage.....NOT 1200+lbs . So we asked them if they were willing to waive the extra luggage fee because of the purpose and circumstances of the trip and they agreed to it. DELTA....you rock!
Tomorrow we start packing, wrapping, and trying to figure out how to fit half our garage into suitcases and boxes.
Thanks again for all the help everyone.....we are almost there.

We got tickets! We fly out on Thursday. Did the first round of shopping today. We get lots of dry foods, flashlights, tools and talked to Delta trying to figure out how to be able to get 2 generators, 1 chainsaw and all of the food and luggage with us but I guess we are not the only ones doing this so it won the an issue :)
Tomorrow we have more food shopping to do and getting the generators and chainsaw.
