Hi, my name is Guadalupe and these are Fuca & Quinzé.

In 2018, we all came to the US and have been here since, missing home, food, places and people, and, at the same time, loving California.

Rio Grande do Sul (RS), my home state in the Southern Brazil, has been hammered by rain lately, like, biblical proportions. Rivers are overflowing like crazy, flooding whole towns and turning roads into rivers. It's pretty bad. Google it. 😥

Over 140 people are gone, hundreds of thousands are out of their homes (2M+), and the weather forecast is basically a big shrug of days of infinite rain.

Rescues are happening like crazy, with people pulling folks from rooftops, dogs, cats, and even horses finding resort on the same rooftops, and all that.

✨ On the bright side ✨, people are coming together to help each other out, which is pretty cool.

But seriously, more rain is on the way, and alongside the rain, ❄️ winter is coming. So things could get rough again. Now it's the time to think days and weeks ahead.

While I'm far away in California, I'm making a difference by coordinating donations for flood relief in Brazil. Every dollar goes a long way – it's worth 5 reais!

I'm connecting compassionate donors directly with animal rescue efforts battling the floods. Right now, my priority is getting essential supplies to bigger animals – warm blankets and protective clothing – to help them weather the storm.

I've opened up my Venmo (@guadalupeba - confirm number 8474), Paypal (guadalupeba), and Zelle (341-400-8474) to collect donations. Every little bit helps, and I promise it'll go straight to the institutions & people I know and trust who are on the ground making things better.
