Donate to Puerto Rico and Mexico Relief

Hurricane Damage in Puerto Rico (Reuters/Carlos Garcia Rawlins)

An important message to the thisistheBronX community:

We have all seen and read about the devastation levied on Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria and Mexico City after the recent earthquake.

While Puerto Ricans make up more than 21% of the Bronx’s 1.38 million people and the 71,000 Bronx Mexicans are more than 5% of all Bronxites, who among us can stay aloof when we hear that the prospects in Puerto Rico for growing food, re-establishing basic utilities, rebuilding homes, and providing the basic amenities that we all take for granted are months, maybe even years away.

Conditions in Mexico City are similarly horrifying. The 7.1 magnitude earthquake killed more than 300 people and leveled more than 60 buildings, with hundreds more sustaining crippling damage. Thousands are homeless and many more are unsure if they can return to their unstable homes.

This is where you and I come in. We have placed a Donate to Puerto Rico and Mexico button right on the top of the thisistheBronX home page and we ask you to click it and give what you can.

While damaged transportation infrastructure might make the delivery of goods difficult or even impossible in some cases, experts are saying that the most effective form of giving in this case is monetary.

The thisistheBronX ‘Donate’ button will take you to the Hispanic Federation Unidos Disaster Relief Fund that assures us that 100% of your gift will go to help children, friends, and families recover from the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria and the Mexico City earthquake.

So please give what you can, no amount is too small. The need is greater than any of us can imagine.

Thank you.
