Kindness for Puerto Rico was created by Karla Salinari, Alice Bodón, Zuleika Acosta and Karen Bodón as a collaboration to help victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Being of Puerto Rican descent and having close ties with family and friends on the island, our desire to help was instantaneous. We felt a strong commitment and a great sense of responsibility to our loved ones and their communities in Puerto Rico. It was also important for us to go beyond simply posting well wishes and sharing information on social media. It was, and still is, essential for us to show our compassion and care through action.  As we saw the crisis worsen due to the delay in receiving funds and supplies from the mainland, we felt an even greater sense of urgency to distribute the supplies personally to those in Puerto Rico.
