Starting Over

Hurricane Maria has left Puerto Rico in a crisis.  With no water, power and limited communications, the situation is dire.
This is my closest family in Puerto Rico.   Uncle Jorge, Aunt Mara, Cousin Mariette and her two boys and of course the family matriarch - my 94 year old grandmother, Antonia.  

We just found out that they are alive and ok for now.  My family is working on getting them here on the mainland as soon as possible. Once they are here, they are starting from scratch.    They will have to leave everything behind.

Many of you have reached out to me asking for a way to help.  This page is to create a fund for them to begin to rebuild their lives.

Costs:
We estimate airline tickets to be approximately $5000
The rest will go to clothing, food and possible first month's rent for my cousin Mariette and her two children at some point.

From the bottom of my heart - my deepest gratitude.

Our family is so grateful for everyone's support. We are able to connect with my family sporadically and know they are relatively ok. My abuela has enough medication for now and a neighbor is keeping her insulin cold with their generator. We going to fly them to my cousins home in Little Rock, AR around the end of October/first week of November. They will only have what they can carry on the plane. Our main concern are the two boys. They have never left Puerto Rico - leaving everything they had and know far behind.

I'll keep everyone posted as we know more. Thank you again for everything.
