A friend and I rallied together our neighbors and collected $3060 in cash and supplies to donate to the Utah Support For Puerto Rico organization. It was created by 3 Utahns who combined with Vivint Smart Home to gather and fly the supplies to Puerto Rico sometime in the next day or two.
I was overwhelmed and grateful for the donations, and it all came together within 36 hours! This gathering of money and supplies to help those in dire need created a lot of positivity for those who gave and for those Puerto Ricans who will receive! To Puerto Rico con amor! (with love.)
P.S. Zeke arrived safely in Roseville, California, having arrived with the clothes on his back and only an overnight bag. All his belongings are still in Puerto Rico, either blown away by Hurricane Maria or floating down a flooded neighborhood street. But he is safe and hoping to return to Puerto Rico to give humanitarian aid as soon as possible.
