  This past saturday 16th, 2016 Ecuador faced a 7.8 hearthquake which produced a great destruction in different parts of ecuador.
  It affected mostly the cost side of Ecuador leaving over 500 known fatal victims and over 4,000 injured, plus over 20,000 homeless pleople of all ages. However with this post I wanted to highlight the other side of the story. Ivolving the help that was amazing yet not surprising to see.
  Ecuadorians are very generopuse people and showed so by the unbelievable amount of volunteers and dotations given to the victims of this tragedy. From children to  friend, family, military, police, firefighters, students, teachers, T.V celebrities everyone showed up to help or donate anything that they could give. Along with the national help came the international support as well
Now here is the problem and the real reason of my post. The help given so far will only be enough for a shortt time as an inmidient help, but we will not be able to overcome this tragic event in a week or two. this is why I want  to give anyone out there with a good heart a way that you can help the people in Ecuador.
