Because of the impact of Tropical Storm Harvey on our home base in Houston and surrounding areas , the Board of Directors of Macario Advantage decided to suspend fundraising for our Caribbean projects so that charitable donors in our home area can focus their resources in local recovery efforts. This decision, of course, has a very detrimental impact on the planned projects for 2018.
Instead, Macario Advantage strongly requests monetary donations that will allow it to purchase, ship and deliver much-needed basic living items to the most heavily impacted islanders on the island of Dominica,West Indies. We ask every reader to go to www.macarioadvantage.org/donate and contribute as much as you can to aid these people. The Donation page on our web site provides for amounts starting at $25, but if you can donate $100 or more, it will be greatly appreciated by the recipients of our aid. Know that your money is going to help the islanders affected by Hurricane Maria. No funds donated to Macario Advantage go to salaries, living or travel expenses. We will put all donations to Macario Advantage directly to work in this disaster recovery effort. Details of where, and on what, donations are spent will be shared with all donors.
Macario Advantage is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under US IRS rules, meaning that all US citizens can claim a tax credit for all donations to Macario Advantage.
