Blessing Bags to Puerto Rico

Many of you know of the destruction within the US Territory, the island of Puerto Rico.

We recently sold some items on our eBay website page and we've put up and very small GFM of $600 in order to make 400 Blessing Bags and send them to the island through a flat rate shipping.

This is a great time to help those in need as the holidays are coming and many still have no power, no running water and much of the island is like living in a 3rd world country.

We met Rafael Alando who lives on the island of Puerto Rico, a life long resident there.

"Things are very bad here, it's sad that we do not have power for heat, to watch TV, to even see. We've been having to walk to the next town over about 2 miles away to get gallons of water for our family. Yes, if you could send some bags here that would be such a blessing here.."
Help us by raising $600+ by December 13th 2017 so we can get bags made up and sent out before Christmas to the island.

100% of our Goal has been reached!



UPDATE: 

100% FUNDED!

We are in the process of purchasing items for the 400 bags that we are going to make and ship in the next couple of weeks. 

Do make a donation (yes its tax deductible) to help those literally that have gone without this upcoming holiday season.





Nearly 7 weeks AFTER hurricane Maria roughly 43% of the island is still without power. According to the status website, water services have been restored to more than 80% of the island and 60% of the island has cell services. You can learn more at their website.
