In keeping with its mission, PRIDA has launched Artesanos Unidos por Puerto Rico – Artisans United for Puerto Rico a fundraising campaign to help offset travel expenses for artists traveling in from Puerto Rico to New York post hurricane Maria to participate in Comite Noviembre’s National Puerto Rican Artisans Fair and Book Expo being held on Saturday, November 18, at Hostos Community College in the Bronx.
As you can imagine, the hurricane devastated the island and artists lost venues where they were able to earn a living after hurricanes Irma and Maria hit. Many of these artists are not able to make a living because their usual venues, malls, and plazas, are either closed or inaccessible. A loss felt even more acutely during this holiday shopping season.
No donation is too big or too small.
