Jennifer Lopez donates $1M to Puerto Rico relief

Jennifer Lopez donates $1M to Puerto Rico relief”

Though Lopez is a native New Yorker (Bronx girl, actually), both her parents are Puerto Ricans, and on Sunday she announced that she was pledging a whopping $1 million toward Hurricane Maria relief efforts. JLo's donation will reportedly come directly from her shows in Vegas, where she has a residency.

Here's the superstar inspires many others to follow her lead.

Puerto Rico is now in state of crisis after Hurricane Maria ripped through the island on Wednesday. She and Rodriguez have also raising funds in the States, with Rodriguez already successfully securing funds from New York Yankees and Major League Baseball. She said Cuban and Barea have two airplanes full of supplies and generators ready to fly to the island.

She added: "We are working day and night to identify the needs".

Jennifer previously used Instagram to urge her fans to help the aid efforts in Puerto Rico.

Lopez went on to share that she and her cousins haven't been able to hear from their families in Puerto Rico since the hurricanes, saying it's something that's been troubling them for days.

She said: "What's on my mind is what's going on in Puerto Rico".

A-Rod's parents came to the United States from the Dominican Republic, which has also been affected by Hurricane Maria. "Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. Together we can help rebuild our island and the Caribbean".
