HOW IT BEGAN
Our homes were rocked during the September 19 earthquake in Mexico City, just two weeks after the strongest earthquake of the century had also hit the southern states of México.
Our homes still stand, but thousands of other Mexicans cannot say the same.
Immediately after the earthquake settled on S19, a group of concerned friends gathered together to do whatever they could to help their devastated city. It started as a project of collecting collecting tools, safety gear, medicine, food and clothing from our local friends and companies to distribute. But once we started to share our efforts on social media, people from across the planet began to help by sending us money.
It became apparent that there was an overflow of help in México City, while other smaller towns were receiving little aid. With the money we had behind us, we were able to stock up on much-needed supplies and head out to a town called Morelos, where we now continue to assist in their rebuild, along with another location in Oaxaca.
