From the UNIDOS website:

On September 20, 2017, everything changed for Puerto Rico. A hurricane of unprecedented strength destroyed much of the island, leaving the great majority of Puerto Ricans without power, water, communications and access to food. In response to the immense devastation created by Hurricane Maria, the Hispanic Federation (HF) convened government, community and philanthropic institutions and leaders to create the UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program.

The goal of our UNIDOS Program is clear: to serve the immediate and long-term needs of families and communities in Puerto Rico. To do so, the Federation has taken unprecedented action, helping to coordinate hundreds of donation drives in the U.S. mainland, distributing millions of pounds of food, water and essentials to those most affected by the storm, delivering emergency relief aid to the 78 hard-hit municipalities, and seeding 13 million dollars to support emergency relief and recovery projects throughout Puerto Rico. Thank you for your generosity!

UNBOXING STORY PODCAST INVOLVEMENT

When I heard that Evil Hat was donating all the proceeds from their new game setting Arecibo to this effort, I decided that Unboxing Story should step up and help as well. In an effort to bring attention to this fund and the many ways we can contribute to help our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico, the creators of Unboxing Story will live stream an RPG session of Arecibo. Partly this is in memory of our late father who was born in Puerto Rico, and our memories of the island itself and her people.

Rewards for contributing to the cause include having a seat in the game along with Puerto Rican food and live streaming, being part of a secret council that gets to decide the fate of the players, and a personal thank you from Melissa and Jon Matos. Take a look at the pledge incentives, merchandise (a seat the at the table can be found here), and milestone goals. We hope this will be as fun for you as it is for us.
