During the Fall we had a spontaneous month long art sale to benefit our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico. I was blown away by so much generosity both near and far! We raised $6,300 through art sales! Thank you to all the artists who contributed their art! Thank you to all of you who bought art! Most of the funds raised went to Chef Jose Andreas' amazing organization World Central Kitchen. We were also lucky to meet people traveling to Puerto Rico who hand delivered solar radios and first aid kits we purchased. Jose Ortiz- Luaces delivered the solar radios. Bianca Bonilla travelled home to Puerto Rico bringing the kits with her. Here are some pictures from her visit.
Happy New Year!
