New York for Puerto Rico

Relief Plan

Puerto Rico has been hit with over 30 plus earthquakes in less than 2 weeks time. Many people are left displaced and some are without their homes completely. In collaboration with El Maestro Inc. and many other organizations, we want to raise this money to fund a couple of relief plans. #1 being a 40 foot container with goods to send to the south part of the island, #2 smaller individual packages sent directly to the people via mail, and #3 to provide financial assistance to local 501c3 non profit organizations that have been doing the ground work since Hurricane Maria hit 2 years ago. We learned many things from Maria and one important one is that the island was and still is in a structural, spiritual, and economically vulnerable state. We feel it is us “The People” that has made the most impact directly to the people on the ground and we hope to continue to bring relief to those suffering from these new natural disasters. Any donation, even $5 goes a long way, so please if you have anything to spare, find it in your heart to donate to this cause. You can donate at the link directly below.
