Puerto Rico Christmas Project

$675 of $5,000 goal

Created October 10, 2017
Puerto Rico Christmas Project is partnering with Calvary Chapel Puerto Rico who has been at the for front of relief distribution in Puerto Rico. Our desire is to provide a bit of joy to the children in Puerto Rico through the giving of Christmas shoe boxes full of toys, school supplies and hygiene items. 

Our goal is to provide enough boxes to distribute to a local orphanage as well as to some local low income communities with which Calvary Chapel Puerto Rico has a working relationship. However, the staff at Calvary Chapel Puerto Rico have said that every day they are meeting more and more families who have lost everything: home, furniture, clothes, etc. 

We would love if you would consider partnering with us to package and distribute as many boxes as we can

This GoFundMe page is designed to facilitate donations from around the globe that will go towards the filling, packaging and shipping of these boxes. 

Our hope is to recieve as many donations as possible to get the boxes done by the month of December. Once boxes are packaged, we will ship them to Calvary Chapel Puerto Rico for distribution. 

Throughout this process we are determined to keep you updated on our progress and provide you with updates after the distribution. 

Many families are struggling to get basic necessities. Christmas is going to look very different this year. Our desire is to provide joy and bless these communities, assuring them that they are not alone and that God sees them and loves them! Especially the little children!

As a doner,  we would love to connect you to your box. Please contact us if you would like us to place a photo of you/your family in a box that you donated for. You may also choose to have us add a special note to the child who will recieve your box. 

Also, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us!

Thank you so much! We hope to do so much good with this project! Will you join us today? Every little bit counts!

Hi Everyone! So, time is moving so quickly! It's already November 1st! I am so happy to say that lots of friends and strangers have reached out to help get Christmas boxes to these children in Puerto Rico. I was able to find 15 shoe boxes on sale at Target that I'm so excited to fill at a packing party I'm having this month!

A woman reached out to me about providing around 6-8 boxes to send over! I am so grateful! I don't even know this woman but I'm so glad that she has a heart to bless these kids in Puerto Rico.

I want to say I really appreciate everyone sharing about this project. Every time you share it, someone new gets an opportunity to be involved in making a difference in the lives of these kids.

I know Christmas boxes may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but many parents will truly be heartbroken this Christmas as they have to explain to their children why this Christmas will be especially empty. Priorities like home repair, work & even survival are the focus right now. But we, you and I, can make a difference! We can bring some Christmas joy to the lives of these children and remind them that they are not forgotten. That their life is worth it and that they and their families will get through this!

I plan to include an encouraging note in a Christmas card in each of the boxes so that these children remember these truths!

Please, please help us make this happen!

Our largest expense is going to be shipping. Please help us tackle this expense so we can make sure that these boxes are filled with the toys, school supplies and hygiene items these children need!

I have donated some of my own money so that everyone knows I'm giving my time and resources to this cause! I am dedicated and willing to do whatever it takes to make this possible. These children deserve to be thought of and cared for!

Please consider being a part! We need all the help we can get!

Please share! :)

I'll be updated with pictures after the packing party I'm having! Talk soon!
