Jennifer’s Million Dollar Donation
Jennifer Lopez laid out her checkbook big time this week when she wrote a $1 Million check (profits from her Las Vegas shows) to the hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. It was reported that Jennifer was also waiting to hear from family on the island brutally battered by Hurricane Irma and Maria just last week.
The native New Yorker took to Instagram to encourage fans, family and friends to donate to the hurricane relief. “What’s foremost in my mind and many others, is trying to figure out the best way to help. Our island of Puerto Rico has been hit by the two most devastating hurricanes we’ve ever seen, Irma and Maria. Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. I urge you to support and donate to the efforts of the first lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló. Together we can help rebuild our island and the Caribbean. To donate, go to www.UnitedForPuertoRico.com.”
Jennifer also enlisted her beau Alex Rodriguez to pool resources to help the Caribbean affected by these hurricanes. “Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are utilizing all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rican and Caribbean relief efforts,” Lopez said in press conference with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo.
