Jennifer Lopez Donating One Million Dollars to Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Efforts

Jennifer Lopez just announced that she will be donating one million dollars towards the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

The 48-year-old superstar joined New York governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday (September 24) to announce the news.

“What’s foremost in my mind and many others, is trying to figure out the best way to help,” Jennifer said. “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.”

“With Marc Anthony, we are spearheading additional relief efforts and organizing the Latino community of artists and athletes to rush the relief that our brothers and sisters in Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean desperately need. We’re working with Mark Cuban and Jose Barea. We have two team planes filled with supplies and generators awaiting to, awaiting air clearance to depart, land and unload these much-needed supplies in San Juan. And I will be donating $1 million from the proceeds of my Las Vegas show to the designated beneficiary charitable and NGO organizations,” Jennifer added.

This week, Jennifer announced that she had not yet heard from some family members in Puerto Rico after the storms hit.

Our thoughts are with those affected by the devastation.

    So, TX only gets what amounts to the value of one of your handbags, FL gets zip, but Puerto Rico gets your million $$??? What is that about? You made your millions in the U.S., not its territory & people in TX and FL are hurting just as much. Surely, you can afford to do your part a bit better. Shame on you to ask us to help you donate, when your money comes from hardworking people to buy tickets to your shows and watch your movies, t.v. dramas, and buy your cheap clothes. No respect.

    What? She has family in PR and those are her people. Are you upset that all of the people who donated to Harvey are not donating to PR? PR is a U.S. territory, it pays the same amount of federal taxes as you do. Mainland Americans go to PR and the US Virgin Islands to vacation, get bigger tax breaks when they buy a home there than the locals do, the US takes advantage of its natural resources, has a few military bases on the island, etc. I could go on. But you’re upset that someone with direct ties to the island is donating her money to her own people? Puerto Ricans support her music, tv shows and movies just as much as mainland Americans. They are proud of her and support everything she does because she always gives back. For you to be upset at an artist giving back to a very poor island is ridiculous and offensive. Texas and Florida will be fine. TENS of MILLIONS (if not hundreds of millions) have flowed into both states through artists like Beyonce and through regular people making donations. That’s not happening for PR. So shut the fuck up.

    Very proud, everyone needs help! Florida has Trump, PR has Jenn, Mark and Hispanics that band together. That’s OK! That’s GREAT!!!

  • Juan Cocco

    texas and florida are red states. They can all drown for all that we care!!!! your president can help fund them :)

  • Diane Nader Epling

    Asshole! Every person counts!!!

  • Diane Nader Epling

    Fully aware she has family there! Good for her. But, why $25k to TX? She could have easily given more to TX, even FL. She lives in the States! Survivors here in the U.S., which provides her enormous opportunities to make gobs of money, should be considered more in need than the measly $25k (pocket change for her), yet she wants those of us who have little (compared to her) to pitch in on behalf of her name??? Yep, I and many others can (and do) pitch in and donate to many, and not just when there’s a hurricane, but it hits our pockets with much more force than hers. So, you can stfu!!!

  • Juan Cocco

    HAHA NOPE! Not the red states!! god is good. karma is a bitch!! *skips away*

  • Diane Nader Epling

    You do realize there are actually real people of all sorts, who have much compassion, no matter where they live or who they vote for. Again, you’re an ass.

  • Juan Cocco

    kill em all bitch :)

  • Lisa Diaz

    Sometimes the amount of publicity involved helps with the $$$ amount given. This person got rich some how and there is not much that is genuine about her PR status. It sold though. She should be donating regardless. She has always come off as fake, but the million helps so I don’t care either way.

  • Lisa Diaz

    It’s entirely sad that you are basically disregarding many good people who DO care and who ARE standing by PR. This makes you no better than Trump.

  • Juan Cocco

    bye wig

  • Lisa Diaz

    I’ve been called many things…I have zero clue what “wig” means, but I obviously hit a sore spot. My truth is your existence. I am secure in my love for all people (except bigoted, ignorant assholes). Peace.

  • Juan Cocco

    still hate all red states. peace.

    You know the dems were caught throwing out food in PR that was delivered, right? Trump delivered, dems tossed it and reported it was never there because that would make trump look bad. Too bad for them it was found and exposed.
