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
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.

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)
