Dear all,

I wanted to give you all another update. Yesterday, I made the trip and visited Puerto Rico, in order to help and support the victims of hurricane Maria. Supported by the donations received from all of you via this page, I was able to deliver goods purchased and that were shipped to the island from the US mainland.     

With the help of my colleague tennis player Maria Sharapova, I was able to hand out supplies, including 1250 gas stoves, 1000 solar powered light/radio units, 3000 propane cylinders, and medicine for San Jorge’s Children’s Hospital, all which was purchased directly with your donations.  

Following a meeting with Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Rossello upon arrival at the airport, we visited patients at San Jorge’s Children’s Hospital and donated the purchased medical supplies. Following the hospital visit, I went to the town of Loiza in one of the hardest hit areas of Puerto Rico and distributed the stoves, lamp/radio units and propane cylinders to the thousands of waiting residents there.

While as much as 90% of Puerto Rico is still without power, my fundraising efforts won't stop and I will continue via www.youcaring.com/donatewithmonica. Thank you all once again for all your generous donations. With your help, we were able to put actual, much needed supplies, in the hands of the people directly. I am forever grateful.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to update you all with some information on the fundraising efforts that I have been working on over the past couple of weeks through this amazing website. I am speechless, in awe, and so incredibly thankful for the support that I have received and all of you that have donated and offered to help. We have raised so far over $125K, and continue to raise more funds every day. As I mentioned from the start, my goal was (and remains) to make sure that every dollar received here from you is spent in a direct way for the people of Puerto Rico. We have used your donations to purchase large quantities of the items listed here, which we are shipping out, today, in a large container from Jacksonville, FL to San Juan, which will arrive Saturday morning. This container contains the following items (in large quantities) – all directly purchased with your generous donations: 

- Solar powered lamps
- Cooking stoves
- Propane cylinders (for the stoves)
- Medication that is urgently needed 

I will be going to Puerto Rico on Monday, October 23rd to personally collect the container, unpack it, and distribute these items to those that so desperately need it. This is the first trip to come and bring help, and it certainly won’t be the last one…   

Thank you again to EACH AND EVERYONE ONE OF YOU who so generously donated and will be donating moving forward, it means the world to me. 

- Monica ❤️
