Beyond Maria: Coming Together to Help Rebuild Puerto Rico




Luis Mendez and Waleska Sallaberry, the publishers of Natural Awakenings Puerto Rico (PR) edition for the past 15 years, have a simple request: “Please help us rebuild.”

Mendez and Sallaberry are remarkable community leaders, having not only launched what is now PR’s number one health and wellness publication, but also having originated and managed the most important annual health and wellness expo in PR and the Caribbean, created a natural health network of discounted services with more than 1,000 providers and 250,000 members, and founded an alternative eco-school to serve PR’s western coast.

Natural Awakenings publishers have created a GoFundMe account to support their efforts to rebuild PR’s holistic health and wellness community at a time when healing services are desperately needed. Mendez and Sallaberry will be trustees of this fund and will disseminate the proceeds to the people and organizations in PR at their discretion.

Natural Awakenings Publishing Corporation CEO Sharon Bruckman says, “Through this campaign, we are offering a way to directly affect the natural health community in Puerto Rico, allowing for continued sustenance in the months to come.”
