The Season of Giving: 5 More Ways to Support Puerto Rico - LuminAID Lab

December 05, 2017

This season, we've been so honored to see the way people and communities have banded together to help families in need in Puerto Rico, Dominica, the US Virgin Islands, Barbuda, and beyond. On our recent feature on Shark Tank, we shared how much we've accomplished together, thanks to grass-roots support and our incredible partner organizations. We want to highlight their crucial work, and support them with so much left to do.

An estimated 1 million Puerto Ricans are still without power two months after the storm. In the US Virgin Islands, more than 60% of the residents have no electricity. In Barbuda, the entire island had to be evacuated, and now residents are trying to return to rebuild. During the season of giving, there are so many ways to give back.
