Compassion Kind and Project No Labels Raises Over $1800 for Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico

ST. PETERSBURG – Compassion Kind and Project No Labels presented a night dedicated to the people and animals of Puerto Rico at Hurricane Seafood Restaurant on November 18th. The night kicked off at 6:00pm and all proceeds raised (over $18000) went to Compassion Kind and their outreach and rebuilding efforts.

Rural areas outside of San Juan are ravished and in dire straits, leaving many Puerto Ricans to make survival their foremost thought. Each passing day is yet another without electricity, adequate housing, and other essentials that we could not fathom living without.

That’s why Aja Nikiya and her team with Compassion Kind are selflessly assisting in efforts to strengthen and rebuild the island.

“We are distributing cargo shipments and donations to the people that need it most. We are covering areas impacted greatly by Hurricane Maria including Las Piedras, Humacao, Juana Diaz, Yabucoa, Yauco, and Utuado,” says Founder, Aja Nikiya.

Compassion Kind and Project No Labels thanks all who attended Rise Up Florida Benefit in support of a stronger Puerto Rico.

Project No Labels is a 501c3 nonprofit. Their mission is to unite all Tampa Bay LGBTQ+ individuals and straight allies through positive activities and events promoting volunteerism and activism.
