Students with Puerto Rico

$216,180 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 3,439 people in 23 months

After the destructive path of Hurricane Maria through Puerto Rico, everyone on the island is working together to rebuild our home. As college students in the United States, we cannot sit idly by: we want to help those that lost everything get their lives back in order.

This initiative began with college students across the U.S. who anxiously witnessed the wrath of Maria from the outside and felt helpless. We realized that through our networks at the different Universities we attend, we can have a great impact on the recovery efforts. 

The proceeds from this GoFundme will go to Unidos por Puerto Rico, a public-private initiative started by the office of the First Lady Beatriz Isabel Roselló and a group of companies to help the victims of the storm. We are going to need all the help we can get.

Please support our cause to help Puerto Rico get back on its feet.


Después del impacto devastador del Huracán María en Puerto Rico, nuestra Isla comienza a unirse en preparación para reconstruir nuestro hogar. Nosotros, los estudiantes universitarios de la diáspora norteamericana, no podemos quedarnos inactivos, queremos ayudar a aquellos quienes han perdido todo a recuperar sus vidas.

Esta iniciativa comenzó tras estudiantes universitarios de 50+ instituciones a través de los Estados Unidos informarse ansiosamente sobre el huracán, sintiéndose inútil al estar tan lejos de sus hogares y seres queridos. Pronto nos percatamos que a través de nuestras conexiones en varias universidades, podemos crear un gran impacto de auxilio en la recaudación de fondos para Puerto Rico.

El dinero recaudado tras este GoFundme irá a la organización Unidos por Puerto Rico, una iniciativa público-privada que formó la Primera Dama de Puerto Rico, Beatriz Isabel Roselló con el apoyo de un grupo de compañías, para el auxilio y apoyo de las víctimas del huracán. Vamos a necesitar toda la ayuda posible.

Por favor, cooperen y ayuden a Puerto Rico a recuperarse y reconstruirse.
