Specifically groups like Los hobos and in the Mexican Red Cross. Ernie welcome to the program thanks for having me so it you explain a little bit about the organizations that. You're events gonna help that you let our listeners know what lust hopeless is. And years and I think we all got an idea of what the Mexican Red Cross them at a gas let's let's let her lessons now. Of course is so low stop us they're basically end a group and I think they were all over Mexico I think that there's various ones I'm across the country. But their job is basically to help people that have been stuck or injured I'm in the rubble of the earthquake so they're really the guys that go in there and help people out and as most of us now arena some of that. Biggest things that. Impacted the city during the earthquake was that tumbling of a lot of buildings lot of older buildings. And so you know there was schools with children that underneath the rubble there was a lot of people that were trapped so to stop us there they really can't relate the first response kinds ago and then south. They really need a lot of support because they're pretty local and so we're splitting. Everything that's Miette Pattinson poses this Mondays in a split evenly from the crews are how which is a Mexican Red Cross. And the stop us so we're really happy that were kind of helping one of these local groups that really directly help the people that are affected by the earthquake. And so it we have prensa imposes and in the Hyatt regency has been in here a number of times are about the many events that they happened. This this one affected you personally because era you're a native of Mexico City I and I was ball. Aren't there so where my parents and all of my parents families so all of my extended family is pretty much. From Mexico City or the local area. And since I was born in marriage has so much family there we travelled or quite a lap so of course the city is. Super near and dear to my heart and a lot of my family's still over there are likely there'll Safin everybody's fine but. Of Corus had a lot of the grief and in the anxiety and stress that happened. After the earthquake directly affected me in my family because we were. Taking in and make cherry one's okay and so. It really you know broke my heart to hear how many how many people are suffering and how this had you know greatly impacted the city. And a lot of people that are really close at.

There's a there's only so much we can donate to I mean right now agree I think as of this week in October were kind of concentrate on like local Puerto Rico needs. Lot of outings glittery go and now when you know with everything that's going I think like you said it's it's hard to even figure out where you can help but you know when this happened I kind of asked myself OK as an individual what's the biggest impact that I can have. And this big yoga class that I host every month was kind of like the first thing that popped into my head is like OK can reach a lot of people at ones. And hopefully you know and help with one of the many. Sadly tragedies that are going on right now.
