Recently, Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, leaving the whole island without access to power, water, food, and bare necessities. Many people weren’t able to communicate with their family for days. As you may or may not know, my husband is from Puerto Rico and we got married there as well. Puerto Rico has become my second home. Seeing the devastation and hearing stories from our friends and families is heartbreaking. You can help!
