While visiting Puerto Rico in January 2020, my family and I were awakened by powerful earthquakes two nights in a row. Upon returning back home and reflecting on the beauty of both the island and its people, I wanted to do something to help. 

So I created a "pop-up" auction for the next week on Facebook. Five pieces (along with their studies) were auctioned off to aid the recovery and relief efforts through Unidos:The Hispanic Federation, close to $900 was raised.
