TLDR: HELP ME WITH HURRICANE MARIA EXPENSES BY COMMISSIONING ME OR BUYING STUFF FROM MY REDBUBBLE. SUPER APPRECIATED THANK YOU!
Hey guys, I know it's been a while. As most of you know, I live in Puerto Rico, which was recently devastated by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María. My house didn't suffer any major damage, but I'm still not sure about some electronics which may have gotten wet when my room flooded. So, in general, I'm okay and so's my family. On the other hand though, some of my friends have had destruction strike them--one of my best friends is homeless right now, as her house was almost completely destroyed.
I was fortunate enough to fly to Massachusetts with my grandparents to go to my cousin's wedding and my aunt was kind enough to let me stay for an extra week, so I could have access to clean, hot water, electricity and cellular service. During my time here, I've been comfortable, but I'm leaving tomorrow to go back to the island. While things are better there, it's still pretty bad. For almost a month, my dad was jobless and wasn't earning any money. While he's working now, it's just enough to get by. I've spent a lot of my own money buying food to take back home with me and share with friends and family and, you know, most of it wasn't cheap. And the struggle for food and other needs will continue for who knows how long. So if you'd like to be an angel, feel free to commission me, or to buy anything from my RedBubble shop! (Both links above). I'll be trying my best to keep in touch in regards to the commissions, but please understand that signal is limited in the island. I wish I could be able to help my friend(s) who've lost their home(s), as well. Even if it's just whatever money I make from sales.
Because of the storm and all that, my semester's been delayed... I only took 3 days of class lol... Graduation seems so far away,, and with everyone legitimately moving out of the country, it makes you wonder if you should stay or not.
I love you guys, though I'm not as active here as I used to be. I hope you guys are doing okay too. Like always, feel free to follow my art blog or my regular tumblr. (keiggyart & keiggy)
