27 September 2017News

This is very important! Let’s help the people of Puerto Rico who survived to Hurricane Maria.

On September 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria swept over the island of Puerto Rico, killing at least 10 people. Power and communication were cut when the hurricane hit. Survivors need assistance. Local communities need help in rebuilding entire towns. A dam is in danger of collapsing, which would leave over 70,000 people without a home. Water bottles, generators, food, clothing, insulin and many other sanitary and basic products are desperately needed. We need your help.

Voices for Puerto Rico is an initiative by Artists in the Diaspora to support those affected in Puerto Rico by natural disaster, most recently Hurricane María. We have opened a relief fund to help support the rebuilding of Puerto Rico. Please join VOICES and help us spread a message of unity. Together we are stronger! Let’s help Puerto Rico’s local heroes as they rebuild the island. Let’s unite our Voices for Puerto Rico!

Here is the message that Eva sent today to put her help and also speak up against those airlines who are charging $2200 for a coach seat.
