I am creating this go fund me, to directly provide imminent care and support to the people of Puerto Rico as a gesture of solidarity, and alliance with my mother country. This go fund me will serve as a personal 100% non profit organization that will serve to assist the island and people of Puerto Rico in its dire time of need. Donations to the fund will serve to assist Puerto Rico over the next few months. Donations to this fund will serve to cover costs of

  • Clean Water in mass bulk
  • Transferable & alternative fuel and gasoline
  • Medical Supplies
  • Medical Coverage
  • Non perishable food
  • Charitable on site meals
  • Spiritual and emotional trauma counseling
  • Cargo plane expenses
  • Cost of air fare

When entry way to Puerto Rico becomes more accessible again, I will be organizing a relief trip with a trusted group of disaster relief organizers, construction volunteers, & medical and spiritual practitioners. We are hoping to bring direct contact and support to the island and it citizens over the next few months.

The Diana Gameros “¿Cómo Hacer?” (music video) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.  (Directed by: Ben Fee)
www.wearescandinavia.com

You build a wall – we make a bridge.
You ban an immigrant – we make a flower bouquet, a song
and welcome all humans in.” 

“¿Cómo Hacer?” – a song made up of questions that came out of my need for home, wisdom and forgiveness. Although I know we may not always have the answers to all the questions we ask on our quest for freedom, i truly believe that asking the questions is the first step toward being free.”  (~Diana Gameros)

Original Music & Lyrics by Diana Gameros:
www.dianagameros.com & Translation:

¿cómo hacer que la vida perdure
(que nada ni nadie escasee)?
si nadie es eterno
nada nuestro

¿cómo hacer que el que camina vuele?
¿cómo hacer que las fronteras se evaporen?
y caminar sin prisa al hogar
sin miedo llegar

¿cómo hacer que mi tierra me perdone?
¿cómo hacer para que su jardín ya vuelva a florecer?
y hacerle saber que lejos duele
decirle también que vivo por volver a verle

————————–

english translation:

how can we make life last?
(so that nothing and no one is scarce)
if no one is eternal
nothing ours

how can we make the walker fly?
how can we make the borders dissolve?
so he/she can walk home
with no rush
fearless, arrive

how can i make my land forgive me?
how can we make her garden flourish again?
i live to see her again
