Carmen Yulin Cruz is the mayor of San Juan, one of major municipalities in Puerto Rico, and she put out a plea to the world to help the people in Puerto Rico after the devastation from the recent Hurricanes. Although you may not be able to get to Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Texas or Florida to help, there are ways to help the people that are still in dire need of the basics such as water, food, medical supplies and shelter. Once the basic needs are met then the rebuilding must begin. Here are some ways to help from afar.
American Red Cross - Disaster Relief and you can choose where to send funds
Save the Children - Provides help to families and children
One America Appeal - Provides help to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands
