Dear friends,

Thanks to a new contribution to match, we have a increased our matching fund again, for Hurricane Irma relief MEDICC donations to Cuba.

Our new match fund is $11,000, and we have sent in $19,300 to MEDICC so far.

Not only is every dollar you give doubled by us, but on top of that, MEDICC doubles donations itself, through the end of this year, so that every dollar you give becomes four dollars. If we can meet our match of $11,000 then we will send in $22,000 to MEDICC, which they will double, so in total, $44,000 will be sent to Cuba.

Checks to MEDICC are tax deductible.

Hurricane Irma was the first Category 5 hurricane to hit Cuba since 1952. Yet this has not stopped the US blockaded country of Cuba from sending aid and medical professions to neighboring countries devastated by the hurricanes. Let us continue to respond in the spirit of solidarity that Cuba so exemplifies to the world.

You may write a check payable to “MEDICC,” and mail your check to:
