February 2018: PUERTO RICO(GOAL: $500) GOAL MET!
As all of you know hurricanes devastated some parts of the Caribbean last year. Some places are still in the recovery phase, and while not making the news on a daily basis still need assistance in getting the basics such as water to folks in those affected areas. I am therefore asking you all to make a small donation to support the purchase and shipment of bottled water as well as supporting the shipment cost of other supplies collected in Atlanta to Puerto Rico.
