We cannot wait for this government to take care of our own! A message from @delavegaprophet : "I'm urging all of my supporters to help the people of Puerto Rico during this critical time. Even the smallest contribution can have a huge impact. Unidosporpuertorico.com is an effort started by the First Lady of Puerto Rico Beatriz Rosselló enlisting private sector help to provide aide to those affected by both hurricane Irma and Maria. Visit the website to make your donation."
A large number of LSA families are not only from Mexico, but are from the states that were most impacted by recent earthquakes. In addition, a number of families, staff and community members are Puerto Rican and have family members on the island.
LSA is committed to helping those that are most vulnerable. We are joining with others to collect items to support those impacted by these natural disasters.

As of today, Puerto Rico (along with the U.S. Virgin Islands) still remain in a state of crisis. And the elected leader of the United States, along with many other officials, have been deafening in their silence around this.
If you can, please speak up for those who cannot. Call your representatives and ask them what are they doing to address this tragedy. If you can, donate to organizations that are working to help our fellow citizens in their time of need. There are many ways to help!
Truly honored to be part of two fundraisers this week. This Wednesday at @arlohotels with @hollenbergbros for @artstartorg, a great organization providing arts programming for at-risk youth who may be homeless or living in shelters. And Thursday for @fiestadecolores593, organized by @dgaleart and located at @chemistrycreative. 80% of proceeds from this event will go towards this year's Fiesta de Colores project that helps those in Educador still affected by the earthquake of 2016. 20% will go directly towards families in Mexico & Puerto Rico. The art lineups for both shows are crazy, the vibes will be great and we'll all be doing our part to help others. Come through or make a donation.
