Hurricane Maria Relief

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent natural disasters and tragedies worldwide. Zumba Instructor Network™ Members have come together to support those in need both around the world and in our own backyards. To every ZIN™ and Zumba® lover who has donated, volunteered, or hosted/participated in a Zumbathon® charity event to raise awareness following these crises, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Below, you’ll find an update on relief efforts related to the ZIN™ Community, and how you can lend your support in this time of great need.

Hurricane Harvey – Texas

After Hurricane Harvey made landfall this past August, a team of ZIN™ Members, Zumba Education Specialists (ZESs) and Zumba Jammers (ZJs) partnered with the Zumba Home Office (ZHO) to deliver emergency relief items to ZINs and families in critical need.

Our sincerest gratitude goes out to our Texas team and all ZIN™ Members who mobilized, provided and continue to provide much-needed support to affected areas. In addition to partnering with the relief team, we also contributed to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to aid those in Houston and the surrounding areas.

Hurricane Irma – Caribbean Islands

Some of the hardest hit areas in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma included several Caribbean islands. We partnered with Waves for Water to help provide clean drinking water and water filtration systems to those affected following both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

In the days and weeks following the storm, as some island residents regained power and phone service, ZINs started making contact and sharing on-the-ground devastation. ZCOM volunteers in District 49 have sprung into action, creating a District project to support fellow ZINs whose homes were severely damaged or destroyed. We’re continuously awed by the support that ZINs continue to provide to one another, and thank you for your support of those in the Zumba family.

How You Can Help

Consider donating to:

Hurricane Maria – Puerto Rico

In the wake of the devastation in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria, we partnered with Daddy Yankee and Feeding America to provide food and relief items to those in immediate need on the island.

We are also working with a team of ZIN™ Members and ZESs to deliver emergency relief items to ZINs and their families. Currently, ZES Lieschen Montaner is on the ground in Puerto Rico, delivering funds and goods to the affected family members of fellow ZINs.

Earthquakes – Mexico

After the series of horrific earthquakes that hit Mexico in September, Zumba® partnered with GlobalGiving and Sociedad de Medicos Residentes y Ex Residentes Del Instituto Nacional De Pediatria to provide relief and support to victims.

We’ll be collecting relief items at events in Mexico this month to continue to provide support to those in need.  ZINs are continuing to show their support in amazing ways, like the ZCOM volunteers in Mexico, with the help of ZINs from around the globe, who created a beautiful video – #FuerzaMexico – to show love and support to those affected.

Las Vegas Mass Shooting

The outpouring of love for the victims and families affected by the tragic event that took place in Las Vegas has been incredible. Members of our community were personally touched by this tragedy, including a ZIN™ Member who was in the midst of the chaos that night. She has received a tremendous amount of support from her ZIN™ besties, who immediately traveled to be by her side. To aid those in need, we ask that you join us in making a donation to the Las Vegas Victims Fund’s GoFundMe page.

Once again, there are no words to describe the gratitude we feel towards our ZIN™ family in helping to support, rebuild, and lend a helping hand during these troubling times. We’ve been truly moved by the generosity and compassion shown by our Zumba® family – we <3 you all!

As we worked to create this overview for you, Hurricane Ophelia hit Ireland, Wales, and Scotland; Somalia suffered a terrorist act; and fires hit Spain, Portugal, and California. ZIN™ Members are already springing into action to reach out to communities that have been affected. ZHO will continue offer support in as many ways as possible.

We are here for you and are united by #ZumbaLove.
