Down, but not out...
**Update 10/17/17: The number of heartwarming messages of "gratitude" starting to come in has only illuminated the ongoing need on the island. While our incredibly generous donors have provided enough to help us send multiple packages of sat phones, medicine, water filtration devices, generators, and more, the need is on-going and, in some cases, increasing. We've partnered with Cajun Airlift to help get more supplies to Puerto Rico faster and in the right hands, but we can use all the help we can get to continue sending directly to people in need. Please visit our facebook page for updated pics, vids, and info.**
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the recent Hurricanes in Puerto Rico. While news footage highlights the impressive damage caused by Hurricane Maria, we realize that we still today lack contact with many of our own friends and family members and can only hope and pray that they are all okay.
Given the encouraging number of requests to assist, we decided to put together our own initiative to gather volunteers and funds to help support our brothers and sisters on the island. We are amazed of the number of people willing to volunteer and personally carry much-needed supplies to Puerto Rico!
But, there are a lot of ways to help the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. For those who have the means and time, we recommend joining the Red Cross, Team Rubicon, or Island Corps to go to the island and pitch in in any way possible. Or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help direct you.
If you'd like to contribute your hard-earned financial resources, but are unsure of the best way to do so, our generous supporters have offered to match every dollar raised through our site. We will give 200% of each dollar raised (through matching) directly to a needy family to provide for the basic necessities of life.
Whether you can give your time and physical effort, a few bucks, or just your prayers, we appreciate it more than we can ever say. It will take a long time to recover, but we are encouraged by the demonstration of love and support we have already witnessed and experienced and are certain we will only be stronger in the end.
Thank you! iMil gracias!
