Sometimes, when the world seems pretty dark, it’s wonderful to be reminded of the best humanity has to offer, and this weekend did that for me. I hope you each get to experience something like this in the future. It helps change perspective and makes you realize you don’t need to take big steps to make change and even small actions count. I feel very lucky to work with people who care, brands who care, and have never been more proud to be an #AmexAmbassador.
@AmericanExpress invited me to visit San Juan with some friends @caraasantana & @realjessemetcalfe to see real relief efforts in action, and I learned a few things:
1. You can shop small to help local communities, and there’s not just one way to help with relief efforts
2. Some of the local Chef’s like @chefjoseandres are absolute heroes, providing over 4 million meals to Puerto Rican residents in the weeks following the recent disaster
3. @_lin.manuelmiranda is one of the true geniuses of our age, and his show Hamilton is one you have to see—I feel beyond lucky to have been able to see it with him in it ♡ 🇵🇷
