On September 8th, Hurricane Irma made landfall in Cuba as a category 5 storm, the largest storm to hit Cuba over the last 85 years.
I'll be spending time in Cuba helping out the communities most in need of cleanup and rebuilding (Ciego de Avila, Sancti Spiritus and Santa Clara).
A team of us will be working alongside the Cuban people helping with the most pressing relief efforts in tandem with local organizations and leaders to create the greatest impact.
In addition to helping with rebuilding and cleanup, we’ll be collecting and delivering much-needed relief supplies (medical, hygiene, etc) to organizations providing assistance to those most affected by the storm.
Your donation will support:
-rebuilding and cleanup
-the purchase and delivery of much-needed supplies
-cash donations to select, vetted organizations on the ground.
All donations from this crowdfund go directly to the CubaOne Foundation, a 501(C)(3) organization, to be used for the relief effort.
What's my relation to this cause? I first went to Cuba over a decade ago and stayed for a semester as a student. Since then I've been back dozens of times for educational and professional reasons. Throughout the years the Cuban people have given me so much and now is the time to give back.
I will provide a written followup to anyone that donates. I'm available to answer any questions about this project.
Thank you so much for any contribution, large or small!
