Help my home state Rio Grande do Sul! Ajude o RS!!!!

A plataforma mais premiada do Brasil

My Dear Friends.


I apologize in advance for the long email and personal content.


My home state of Rio Grande do Sul (RS), in Brazil, is going through some rough times. Severe rains over the entire state in the past week has caused the largest flood and what is being called the biggest and worst tragedy in the state’s history. This is happening 6 months after another flood thta caused extensive damage in the central region of the state and caused the death of 50+ people, left thousand homeless and closed several business.


I understand Benevity is the chosen and preferred platform for WWT’s social causes and programs. Unfortunately, I searched through it this morning and found no entities or programs supporting this emergency. Ibelieve this is due to the fact that local NGOs are not that mature in this platform yet and also the urgency of the matter. That is why I am reaching out on a personal level. As a Brazilian citizen born at RS, where all my family still leaves, I am stepping forward and trying to collect as much funds as possible to support the local community with food, medicine, clothing, personal care items and help in the rebuilt of the region. Even though, at this point, I do not have any family or friends directly impacted, I still feel compeled to somehow help. This will be my May of Caring!!!

I am taking personal responsibility and will be responsible to make sure all funds received are donated to the SOS Rio Grande do Sul campaing ( SOS Rio Grande do Sul ( )  managed by the state government. This is an specific fund created by the state and ALL funds are goinf direct to the relief and rebuilt efforts.
