Thank you for taking the time to read this. The funds from this fundraiser will go directly toward the purchase, freight, and distribution expenses for 3,000 water purification filters, to create a network of clean water around the island of Puerto Rico for the people who are trying to survive in the aftermath of the Natural Disaster Hurricane Maria. Here is a link to the products that will be purchased:

  • Katadyn Hiker Pro
  • Katadyn BeFree 1L/3L/10L
  • Sawyer Bucket Purifier

While the FEMA & federal government response to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico has been commendable, it has become VERY clear that their effort is NOT ENOUGH. NOW is the time to show the world that we as human beings are willing and capable of banding together to help and heal great numbers of people in their time of struggle and need. I’m in touch with several of the citizen led relief efforts on the ground. The MAJORITY of the island outside of the San Juan Metro area has not received any federal aide or relief and many communities don’t have access to food or water, and donations are just sitting at the port because they don’t have 1)enough capable volunteers available to distribute donation items 2)communication with the municipalities in charge of receiving and distributing items Here are the on the ground organizations & funds that this fundraiser will support:

Clean water is essential for life.

Hurricane Maria, one of the strongest and fastest growing storm systems in the Caribbean made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20th, 2017 leaving the entire island without power and millions of people without access to clean drinking water.

Make a donation today that mobilizes the effort to provide emergency filtration island wide.

Once the funding goal is reached, a shipment of 3 pallets of roughly 400 portable gravity filtration systems (plus replacement cartridges) will be deployed to 3 major population centers around the island, received by a ground team, and distributed to families, temporary shelter locations, and relief operations.
