As of today, about 75% of residents in Puerto Rico still lack electricity and 25% are without water. Neither is expected to be fully restored for months. Their infrastructure has been destroyed. Food and safe drinking water is hard to come by. Today it is expected to be 87 degrees outside.
These are citizens of the United States who are currently not receiving the support from their government for any successful recovery efforts to take place.
Writers for Puerto Rico is a group of writers in film, television, and beyond who are seeking to unite with one voice and try and help these efforts. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to United for Puerto Rico. This purpose of this initiative is to provide and aid to those affected in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.
These people need our help.
*Donations are being collected by the UTA Foundation, a 501c3, and is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. All proceeds from the campaign are going to United for Puerto Rico, a new non-profit organization founded to help Puerto Rico rebuild and recover from the devastating hurricanes.
