A Response To “A Call For Help For Puerto Rico”   

October 8th, 2017 by George Harvey

Together, We Can Make Things Better

I should start this off with a disclosure. I know Joseph Mangum personally. However, I am not profiting in any way from this message, aside from the feeling I get from being able to spread it here. I can say I believe that Joseph’s message is true, precisely as he presents it.

After publishing “A Call for Help for Puerto Rico” in CleanTechnica, I got this message from a local Brattleboro solar installer:

Message from Joseph Mangum of Sunnyside Solar of Brattleboro, VT:

https://www.gofundme.com/ngwbw-solar-generators-for-puerto-rico

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico. My wife, Rosemary, is from the island and half of our family is there. With great patience and perseverance, they have struggled over the last two weeks. There is no power where they are at (6% of the island is re-powered) nor is there safe water to drink.

We were delayed in prompting this fund raiser until the logistics of getting supplies delivered were sorted. The infrastructure is in ruins and gasoline incredibly difficult to come by. We have successfully navigated both gas and vehicle problems so this project is ready to go.

We are building solar generators and delivering water pump purifiers for the hardest hit areas.

Solar generators have myriad uses. Medical needs such as refrigeration for insulin and power to phones for communication and information are two of the largest concerns.

This is a personal plea. If I had the funds I would already be there. I may not be Puerto Rican by blood, but a large part of my spirit is there. Rosemary’s whole family is there and she has been solidly strong through it all but not being able to help right away has been extremely emotional.

We humbly ask for your support in either donating, spreading this campaign far and wide or even better both.

No matter what you do, thank you for reading this.

Joseph Mangum

Here is an opportunity to help people stand up to a president who makes light of disaster by throwing out paper towels. That was a moment I believe is right up there with “Let them eat cake.” But we are all in this together, and together, we can make things better.

Please help Joseph, Rosemary, and their family.

Thanks,

George Harvey
