Red Ventures CEO Launches Fundraiser For Maria Victims

CHARLOTTE, NC — Millions of people in Puerto Rico are dealing with the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria, and local relief efforts are ramping up to help those victims.

Puerto Ricans are without power and facing sweltering temperatures. It’s also becoming increasingly difficult to find food, fresh water, and fuel.

The CEO of Red Ventures, Ric Elias, has launched a 30-day online fundraising campaign called “Rebuild Puerto Rico.” The Puerto Rican native is also offering to match up to $5 million of funds raised.
