Filmmakers going above and beyond for “Camp Forgotten”

Filmmaker / photographer Carlos Vargas and his team @manuelvelez_ and @piti_puaproductions picked up lights from our warehouse to take with them to Puerto Rico. Here is an update on their efforts:

"Today we set on a mission to distribute solar powered lights and groceries to remote communities in the mountains. Without energy, water, and cell service self proclaimed “Camp Forgotten” is a group of 23 families (mostly elder) stuck in an area where the main access bridge collapsed.

Three weeks after Hurricane Maria citizens without hope of the municipality fixing the bridge anytime soon, have been forced to cross the mighty Tanamá river to meet their basic needs. Our brigade, powered by organized civilians with skills (regular people just like you and me) rigged a shopping cart to a fixed line across the river to bring food, clean water, a satélite phone, light, hugs, and hope.

Keep doing whatever you’re doing wherever you are to help Puerto Rico. Every effort, phone call, meeting, dollar, social media post, will help. Don’t question yourself, just do it! It will make a huge impact.

Huge thanks to everyone involved one way or another specially @mpowerdinc for bringing light to Camp Forgotten.”
