Jean Carlos Mendez Perez and Luis Daniel Wilson-Leon
This month, the people of Haiti are on our minds. We wanted to help those struggling to recover from Hurricane Matthew. The need is so great ... what can one family in Florida do?
We started by contributing personal care items to the UCF College of Nursing, which was collecting for a relief project. We have a dentist friend who donated two boxes of toothpaste and we picked up a few big packages of toothbrushes.
Later that week, we got together with some friends and visited Clean the World to pack soap. Soap seems like a small thing when Haitians are facing so many challenges, but it helps prevent illness and disease that can make the death toll skyrocket after natural disasters like Hurricane Matthew.
This pair of kindness opportunities were for another sweet pair, Jean Carlos Mendez Perez and Luis Daniel Wilson-Leon, who met at a perfume counter. How romantic is that? Our thoughts are with those missing loved ones lost to tragedy ... here and in Haiti.
