Fundraiser for the People of Cuba

This January, I am traveling to Cuba for the first time. I am going to travel around the entire island, from Santiago, Trinidad, Cienfuegos, and Matanzas to Havana.

I am excited to go to Cuba, but as an American traveler it is important to go with the recognition of who I am and the resources I have access to compared to people in other countries. I have heard before that the people of Cuba have limited access to basic needs, including toilet paper, toothpaste, etc. Below is a list of items that we are requesting for donation. I am going to pack an extra suitcase full of these items and share them with people there who can use them.

If you’d like to donate, please come out to our concert at Revolution Cafe on January 4th from 5:30-12 (more details below). If you can’t make it, reach out to me at localfreshvibes.com and if you’d like to donate I can meet up with you in person.

Supplies we need:

  • Tooth paste, mouthwash, floss

  • Kids/ adult tooth brushes

  • Deodorant, antiperspirants

  • Hair scrunchies — a lot of them.

  • Feminine hygiene products

  • Vitamins — both adult and for kids

  • Reading glasses, sunglasses

  • Toys for kids (crayons, coloring books, yo-yos, anything really!)

  • Flip flops or Crocs

  • Bubba mugs (Insulated mugs)

  • Soap, shampoo, conditioner

  • Gardening/utility gloves
