Cubacan began as a friendship between a Cuban, Gerardo Hernández and a Canadian, Bill Ryan. The friendship evolved simply as a desire to do something nice, for some nice people. This led to the creation of hundreds of gifts sent to supporters throughout the world, including baseball bats.

From his maximum-security prison cell, Gerardo designed a variety of gifts. Bill’s job was to make his designs come to life.

Since Gerardo’s return home on December 17, 2014 their work has continued. Browse our site and see what Cubacan has done and what we hope to accomplish in the future. Our moto says it all.
