Give Safe Water For Puerto Rico
More than 45% of Puerto Rico's population has no running water since it was hit by hurricane María on September 20th, 2017. However, since almost 90% of the island is without power, this water is not drinkable. Bacterial diseases are already spreading. We need to help!
Please help me raise money to get personal filters and chlorine tablets to vulnerable people that cannot even get already short-supplied bottled water. These filters turn up to 100,000+ gallons of contaminated water into safe drinking water. They are portable and easy to use. In addition, they decreased plastic waste.
Please donate anything you can, share this campaign and motivate others to do the same.
Buying the filters is just step one. We will be making sure the filters arrive to PR and directly in the hands of people in need. We will be documenting every step of this effort on my facebook page. Feel free to follow me.

PS: We have lived in Maryland for the past two years but PR is our home. We have supported family, friends and strangers since day one. We have been involved in several donation drives and have seen first hand how difficult it is to get inmediate help to the island. They are a lot of "hoops" to jump. It just does not make any sense. So, we decided to do something about it.
Thank you for your generosity.
Please share our campaign and help us identify communities in need of these filters.
We have already purchase 30 of these filters, which are made with the best filter technology and turns contaminated water into up to 540 gallons a day/ 100,000+ gallons in total!
Water filters are on the way!
