Bags of Hope
Operation: Bags of Hope
Two back-to-back hurricanes, Irma and Maria, ravaged the Caribbean Islands in September. Living in Puerto Rico, we experienced this firsthand and are seeing the devastation of our once lush island and its beautiful people.
Any help matters. With tiny hands but large hearts, our network of bilingual worldschoolers are building "Bags of Hope" -- bags filled with items of immediate importance, including a note of love from our children to inspire hope.
Bags can be assembled in Puerto Rico or sent from the mainland to be distributed to families in most need (details below). Please come join our efforts and make a difference!
