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.

On September 18, a Category 1 storm hit Puerto Rico, bringing with it strong winds and rain that ultimately led to an island-wide outage.
On Twitter, Puerto Rico’s governor, Pedro Pierluisi, acknowledged that the island’s electrical systems were down. A few hours later, President Joe Biden proclaimed Puerto Rico to be in a state of emergency and commanded federal aid to begin relief efforts.
On September 19, Ricky Martin uploaded a video to Instagram with the hashtags “#PuertoRico te amo. #Fiona.”
The Puerto Rican singer wrote in Spanish, “Puerto Rico, we’re facing another heavy hit from Mother Nature but, as we’ve done before, we’re going to rise up with more strength and courage.”
I am confident that working together, we can keep our island shining brightly. Many celebrities have used social media in recent days to show their support and raise awareness for the islands.
Singer Luis Fonsi shared images of his native nation and wrote, “Puerto Rico, give me courage. We are an exemplary group of hardy, robust people.”
The Global Empowerment Mission and World Central Kitchen are just a couple of the charities that actress Zoe Saldana listed in an Instagram Story with a list of other organizations that can assist those affected by Hurricane Fiona.
