Maria, the People

In the US alone there are more than 6 million people named Maria or Mary.
Dozens of millions if you count compound names. Globally, we’re talking about many millions of people.
If every Maria around the world donates just one dollar, we could help people affected by the hurricane,
turning the name Maria into a synonym of generosity, instead of tragedy.
