Weʼve raised £1,123 to Help with shipping supplies to assist schools & community projects rebuild libraries and hygiene & medical supplies for elderly & vulnerable
- Funded on Friday, 19th July 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Many schools were destroyed by Hurricane Maria, all lost their supplies and these are limited on the island. We are supporting schools and our Art and Craft blog explains why and gives details of what we have been doing for schools and communities since 2015.
There is also a great need for medical and hygeine supplies, especially as many elderly and vulnerable are still in shelters after losing their homes last year in Hurricane Maria. So we also send these supplies to the shelters and to Health Centres.
Everything is documented on our Facebook page with photos, so you can see that all goes directly to where it's needed.
But we are a small charity project, with just 3 of us running it, so help with shipping costs is much appreciated as these are very expensive. Our last 40ft container cost over £4,000 with shipping, port costs and transportation.

Exciting news! We have now confirmed the loading date for our 40ft container as 29th July. We hoped to ship sooner, but this is the first date we could co-ordinate the volunteers plus vans from Nottingham and Milton Keynes to all be available. We will keep you updated nearer the time. Thank you all for your support.
