Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are rejoining to dispatch a philanthropic help activity for the casualties of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Jennifer and Marc’s families hail from the Caribbean island and they have been encouraging their fans to give to the help endeavours after the tempest obliterated Puerto Rico a week ago.
Lopez as of late reported she was giving $1 million to help the general population on the island and now Anthony has uncovered the ex-couple is propelling the Somos Una Voz (We’re Once Voice) activity. Through the crusade, they are collaborating with a few different VIPs, including Jennifer’s beau Alex Rodriguez, Ed Sheeran, Jada Pinkett Smith, Pitbull, Ricky Martin, Vin Diesel, to fund-raise and gather supplies for the island’s most destitute individuals.
The gifts that are gathered through the partnership will go to the American Red Cross, Reach Out Worldwide, United Way, and United for Puerto Rico.
“What we’ve been able to accomplish in the past 72 hours is put together an alliance,” Anthony told U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Wednesday. “It’s an unprecedented list of artists that, combined, we represent 1.3 billion (social media), followers. The major announcement is that we actually care and that we’re doing something about it.
“You’ll be hearing from SOMOS UNA VOZ soon with a major announcement coming up in the next week and if anybody’s listening, just know that we are coming, just know that we care. Families are desperate, but we’re here and ready, willing and able.”
Hurricane Maria has killed more than 20 individuals in Puerto Rico to date and followed in the strides of Hurricane Irma, which additionally caused annihilation when it cleared through the island on the way to Florida prior this month.
