Ok, dance family. It is time to pull together.
As you have probably heard, Ecuador suffered a terrible earthquake (7.8) and over 550 aftershocks (from 6.1-3.2). Fatal victims tolls have passed 570 people, injured 7,000 others, damaged close to 2,000 buildings, and forced over 24,000 survivors to seek refuge in shelters, according to government tallies.
In a combination of efforts with the Consulado General del Ecuador en Atlanta, Mambo Dinamico and Carmen’s Cuban Café, and Baile con Sazon NC, we will be collecting donations (food and monetary) that will be going directly to the victims.
