Dear all,
Today we had the honor to deliver $31.242 Dollars to Project Paz (El paso foundation). These funds came from all your individual donations $10,700 that then were double matched by The Edrington Group.

Your donations will go a long way to help families in Chiapas, Oaxaca and Mexico City that lost everything to the earthquakes..

A million thanks to all our donors from around the world, also to our friends and family that helped by spreading the word about our campaign. Also huge thanks to my company, the Edrington Group, a company that truly lives by its "Giving" More principle.

We are humbled by the amazing response to this campaign and will be forever grateful.

We wish you all a happy Holiday season and allthe best for 2018.

Raul and Vanessa Gonzalez.

More Info

I have started this fundraiser to assist the earthquake victims in Mexico.

My company, Edrington Americas, will double match every donation. Each $1US donated will become $3 in final funds for the nonprofit organizations that will receive our help.

The two earthquakes (Chiapas and Mexico City) have left behind several deaths and substantial damages, there are all sort of needs ranging from basic staples like bottled water, canned food and batteries to long term infrastructure recovery in rural communities.

Our partner in this effort is Project Paz (http://www.projectpaz.org), a NY-based nonprofit. They will make sure every penny goes to the right hands. All funds will go straight to them.

I hope this small effort helps the communities affected by these natural disasters heal and alleviates some of the suffering caused by these natural disasters. 

There is no small donation! Every dollar counts, believe me, one dollar goes a long way in Mexico.

Update #4

WE MADE IT!!!
After spending two weeks on the road for business, this is my first chance to write an update on our fundraiser and I have great news:
Thanks to you all, we have have raised $9,713 beating our original goal by almost 2X. These funds will be double matched by Edrington Americas and will result in $29,139. dollars that will be helping the relief efforts in Mexico after the earthquakes that affected Chiapas, Oaxaca and Mexico City.

We would have never reached our goal without the help of all our friends amplifying of our message, thanks to all of them we managed to reach people well beyond our social media cloud, we are very grateful and humbled by people's response. Over the past 3 weeks we have received donations from the USA, Mexico, Canada, Scotland and many other places, all thanks to every person who "liked", "shared" and forwarded our posts and emails.

What comes next?
Tomorrow I will close the fundraiser and will consolidate the funds with Edrington (maybe some last minute donations could help us close the fundraiser at an even $10k?).

Vanessa, Marc and I will meet with the head of Project Paz in NY to define the organizations and amounts to be distributed. We will also schedule the delivery of the check (once all paperwork clears).

Finally, we will deliver the money and will share a picture of the check to all of you for transparency.

Vane and I will be reaching out via email to each of our donors, but we want to say THANK YOU!, quoting one of our all time favorite artists Gustavo Cerati: "GRACIAS TOTALES".

We thought raising $5k in one month was aggressive, but thanks to you, we will raise $10K in ONE WEEK. #fuerzamexico! We are just 800 dollars short of $10K

Update #1

Thank You Very Much! Mission Accomplished!. We have reached our goal, $5,000USD that Edrington will help turn into $15,000 in donations. We are forever grateful. There are still donors asking if they can contribute, I have raised the goal to $6,500 to give time and space for more donations. All of them will be double matched, we have many days to go, maybe we can break that new ceiling? UN MILLON DE GRACIAS, DIOS LOS BENDIGA.
