Hi EVgrieve!
I read your blog everyday of the week. We are throwing a Puerto Rico hurricane relief party tomorrow if you wanted to post it or people could check out our IG @outeastnyc and get the details. We are also collecting NYC donations in addition to financial donations and will be dropping them off at the firehouse. We would love a post and some support as we want to be a solid member of the community! Our hearts are with all the people in need in Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra and all the rest of the caribbean.
