Push Ups 4 PuertoRico

$16,308 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 136 people in 5 months
My name is Maggie Steffens and I grew up in the Bay Area, but my Dad/family is from Puerto Rico. These funds are being raised specifically for Puerto Rico and will go directly toward Maria recovery. After much disciussion with family, PR, and those who have donated - we will be sending this money to the Boys & Girls Impact Fund of Puerto Rico ( http://bgcpr.org/) . This will be done by either direct sending from this GoFundMe, or a withdrawl and donation to the BGCPR!


Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria just a week after Hurricane Irma hit the Caribbean. While Puerto Rico was focused on aiding neighboring islands & welcoming in those rescued after Irma, Maria was strongly approaching Puerto Rico. This commitment for helping others says a lot about the Puerto Rican's giving and kind culture.

Maria has completely wiped out Puerto Rico's power, caused flooding around the entire island, destroyed infrastructure, and created shortages of safe water & food. There's still plenty that we don't know about as communication has been limited due to lack of power.

We are here to help our beautiful home island and the wonderful people of Puerto Rico. Inspired by fitness and doing what we do best, we are challenging people around the world to donate to our cause of helping Puerto Rico recover from this devastation. 

We challenge you to do 10 push ups & donate as much as you feel comfortable. We encourage you to post a video with #PushUps4PR and challenge your friends and family to join the cause. Planks as well!

Hello ALL!!!!

Wanted to share an update about where #PushUps4PR is going! After much discussion, especially with people in Puerto Rico, we have decided to donate this fund to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico! Specifically, to the Impact Fund in results of Hurricane Maria.

https://www.facebook.com/bgcpr/
http://bgcpr.org/

We are in contact with the Boys & Girls Impact Fund leader and are planning to meet with them personally. We hope to create a relationship moving forward as we would love to help with developing the youth here and rebuilding this place we call home. Plus, maybe with this check, we can influence others to continue the donating trend of the holidays!

I will be sending out tax deductible information as we are MOST GRACIOUS for all who have donated! Please check your emails before the New Year to receive this information!

Thank you so much!

Maggie Steffens
