Celebrities are banding together to assist the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. According to NBC News, celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, Ricky Martin, and others are speaking out after Hurricane Fiona left the islands without power on September 19.

J.Lo included a link to the Hispanic Federation, which is described on its website as “the nation’s premier Latino nonprofit membership organization,” in a story she uploaded to Instagram, pushing her followers to take action.

It is crucial that we take action to support our families in Puerto Rico and, as of late, the Dominican Republic, she added. These Hispanic Federation member organizations are evaluating the actual needs of the inhabitants of the islands on the ground.

The 22-minute music video for Bad Bunny’s popular reggaeton song “El Apagón” was released less than 24 hours before Hurricane Fiona made landfall (which means “The blackout” in Spanish).

From the reporting of journalist Bianca Graulau, the film from September 16 illuminates the lives of the Puerto Rican inhabitants and has amassed over 5 million views on YouTube.
