Help me help our Puerto Rican friends and family survive the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Water filters & personal hygiene products can make a big difference in their everyday life. USPS started operating and boxes are being shipped directly to homes.

Hello, my name is Sandra Trinidad and I come from a beautiful island of beautiful people in the middle of the ocean...surrounded by water...big water... ocean water...Puerto Rico Oh!!!, and we are Americans. Yes, American citizens. We speak Spanish...English as well. 

When someone says their family in Puerto Rico is "ok" or "good" it means Hurricane Maria did not KILL them on Wednesday 9/20/2017. It means I finally heard from them and they survived.
Please do not confuse this with the fact that they are in a crisis situation, that some of them may now be homeless and/or jobless, that they have to stand in line for hours hoping there is still cash in the few ATM's that are operating because it's their only way to purchase essentials, that they are standing in line for hours to get $20 worth of gas, that they have no power, not enough drinkable water and very little means of communications.

3.5 million Americans are suffering, and while it may make us feel great to send donations, we have to make sure that the rescue and recovery efforts on the island continue.
On my behalf, I feel very grateful and humbled by the outpouring of love and donations directed towards Puerto Rico, but unfortunately it won't reach everyone and there's a high chance someone today, three weeks after the hurricane, might die due to lack of some sort of resource or supply they would've easily gotten if it weren't for Maria. Please don't forget about Puerto Rico, many people are still struggling today.

The money raised is being used to buy and ship basic everyday needs and water filters.
