$10,000 is what we as a team need to raise to reach our “Big Hairy Audacious Goal.” We’re sending a team and supplies to Puerto Rico to bring much-needed relief from 2017’s Hurricane Maria. 100% of your financial support will go toward the team’s expenses which include things like air travel, fees, ground transportation, lodging, and building supplies. $100 can be used in many ways. Add up a couple of lunches, a coffee and a snack or two, dinner out with the family, a movie outing. And BOOM, there’s $100.

Or 100 of us can invest $100 to send our missions team to PR to help bring much needed relief.

You can help us reach our goal by clicking below and using your dollars to give someone in Puerto Rico a roof over their house, clean water, electricity. Things we get to enjoy every day.

Give now!

The story…

In the fall of 2017, Hurricane Maria left thousands of Puerto Ricans living without electricity, safe water or reliable sources of food. More than 200,000 Puerto Ricans have fled the island since Maria struck to stay with friends and family on the US mainland, but are anxious to return.

Our teams will have the opportunity to work alongside the local church and help families rebuild their homes and lives. Regardless of your skill set, together we can provide the free labor needed to clean up, gut homes, install roofs, and assist the community in rebuilding their homes. Our initial focus will be assisting the most vulnerable: widows, seniors, single moms, and low-income families living in the rural-interior of the island. These families need hope and you can provide it.
