Help rebuild La Rosa & Lasso

Dear friends,

The situation in Puerto Rico is devastating and sadly many neighborhoods are in ruins. There have been many lives lost, entire homes wrecked and many who are in need as we post this. We encourage you to give them aid if possible through the many organizations available like Save the Children, Fondos Unidos and many more that are active at the moment. 

This page is meant for our friends, for those  who know us, our family, our guests past & future, and for the ones that have reached out offering help. 

La Rosa de los Vientos (larosapr.com) & Lasso (itslasso.com) were directly affected and are still inaccessible due to intense flooding, even ten days after Hurricane Maria has passed. Both have suffered  far more damage than any of us could have ever imagined. 

It is heart wrecking to see all the hard work be destroyed in the blink of an eye. Although we have been hit very hard, we are doing our best to keep our spirits high and have started planning towards rebuilding & reinventing both La Rosa and Lasso. 

Any help is welcome and greatly appreciated. We invite you to make a donation and support our recovery as we move forward during these difficult times. Everyone who knows us knows that every dollar we raise will be put to rebuilding!

For more in depth deatils on our campaign:

All funds will be going to our father Manuel Baez, he is the family boss and will be taking care of collecting all your donations. In the start of our campaign we were completely devastated by all the losses we suffered and estimated that they would mount up to 50k or more. Now that a few weeks have passed and we've managed to asses the situation further we have calculated the damages to be around 100k. We have started our insurance claims and unfortunately they wont cover the whole extent of our losses. Nonetheless we have decided to bring down our campaign goal to 20k in the hopes that we can start using this money to begin rebuilding not only the property but our personal lives. As our main family income, our goal is to get both Lasso & La Rosa running again as soon as possible. 

Thank you as always,

Maria, Pamela & Manuel Baez
