Jennifer Lopez is opening up her checkbook to help the folks affected by the devastating hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico last week. The singer joined New York governor Andrew Cuomo at a press conference over the weekend where she announced she would be donating $1-million, plus proceeds from her Las Vegas show, to help relief efforts.
“Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are using all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean,” J.Lo said in both English and Spanish. “We are working day and night to identify the needs.”
And J.Lo isn’t alone. She noted that the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball have also pledged to help, and Mark Cuban and Dallas Mavericks J.J. Barea, are sending planes to the island to bring help and generators. What’s more, J.Lo’s ex Marc Anthony is working with athletes and artists to get aid to both the Caribbean and Mexico.
