Jennifer Lopez has donated Dollars 1 million after the Puerto Rico disaster during a fundraising campaign in the state of NY to support the destroyed the island by the cyclone "Maria" five days ago, AFP reported.
Jennifer Lopez and Mets pitcher Seth Lugo joined Cuomo at the Javits Center in Manhattan to announce several new partnerships created to bring relief to the island nation.
Speaking first in Spanish and then in English, J-Lo announced the donation to charitable organizations and NGOs.
"Puerto Ricans are American citizens and today Puerto Rico needs our help". "We have two team planes filled with supplies and generators awaiting air clearance to depart, land and unload these much-needed supplies in San Juan". McGovern said they have 5,500 volunteers responding to the hurricanes.
A source close to Lopez told the People that the couple was just among the big names of the Hollywood industry who pleaded their donations. McGovern said they are still assessing the damage in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. The group donated $200,000 of their own money to the effort.
J.Lo also posted an Instagram video, urging her followers to offer support in any way possible.
"What's foremost on my mind and many others is trying to figure out the best way to help", she added.
In her statement, Lopez said, "Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are utilizing all our resources and relationships in the entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rican and Caribbean relief efforts". "Together we can help rebuild our island, and the Caribbean". "Me and my cousin still haven't been able to hear from our families over there".
