All five living former U.S. presidents joined together to expand fundraising efforts for hurricane victims in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, following the massive devastation created by Hurricane Maria.
Expanding on the “One America Appeal” launched to raise funds for Texas and Florida created to help in the aftermath of last month’s destruction from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the campaign will allow donors to also contribute to help the efforts to assist fellow U.S. citizens of both island territories in the Caribbean.
“Now individuals, foundations and institutions making tax deductible donations at OneAmericaAppeal.org may choose to assist all three recovery efforts from Hurricanes Harvey in Texas, Irma in Florida and Maria in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands — or to direct their donation to a specific recovery effort — using the drop-down menu in the website’s donation section,” the presidents said via press release.
Former Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama spearhead the One American Appeal efforts.
