La Isla Foundation

$530 of $14,875 goal

Raised by 20 people in 11 months
On September 20th, 2017, a massive Category 4 Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, resulting in millions of American citizens losing power and clean water for months and the loss of 2,975 lives. Within a week, nearly 70 people, comprised mostly of Puerto Ricans residing in the Puget Sound Region, met in Seattle to discuss tangible ways to help provide immediate relief to victims of Hurricane Maria; this resulted in the creation of the La Isla Foundation . With the generous donations and support of those near and far, our volunteer-led non-profit organization has raised approximately $50,000 to date.

For this one-year anniversary, we will share on social media  some of ways La Isla Foundation has offered relief through volunteer work and your donations in addition to providing ways that we can continue to uplift and rebuild Puerto Rico together.

We are sincerely grateful for your continued support in the form of time and donations that have undoubtedly made an impact on and off the island, evident by the words of gratitude we have received from the people in the towns we helped.
 
Today, we are setting a goal for 2,975 people, one for every loss of life, to donate $5, about the cost of a medium latte, towards our ongoing hurricane relief efforts. So, will you pledge to put down your latte and raise up Puerto Rico?  


Thank you,

La Isla Foundation Board

Overdue Update!

We closed 2018 with one of the most heart-warming acts of kindness and giving from our entire community. Thanks to you, and other donors, who gave through our Amazon Wish Lists, we were able to provide Chiara and her two daughters with the basic needs to settle into their new home, and have a warm FIRST Christmas in Seattle. Chiara said "You've all helped me realize that people do care, and I feel like I am part of a great community."

Thank you for your generosity. Please stay tuned, for more updates on upcoming projects!
