We Can Make a Difference

We believe a group of women, when united to do good, can make a powerful difference. We also believe a group of Puerto Rican women will always manage to make if fun.


We gather in homes and community venues to engage in raising funds and awareness for a variety of causes. Some of these have become annual events, while others have been impromptu opportunities. Some of the annual events are:
