United for Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló in collaboration with the private sector, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the recent Hurricanes in Puerto Rico. While news footage begins to pour in showing the impressive damage caused by Hurricane Maria, we realize that we still lack contact with many of our own friends and family members and can only hope and pray that they are all okay.
Given the encouraging number of requests to assist, we decided to put together our own initiative to gather volunteers and funds to help support our brothers and sisters on the island. "
"Amigos, Puerto Rico está afrontado uno de los peores momentos en la historia y nos necesita a todos. El huracán Maria ha provocado devastadores daños dejando a miles de personas afectadas. Por este motivo he creado esta página para recolectar fondos y así poder proveer las necesidades básicas y reconstruir lo perdido. Mi donación de $100,000 ya está en la cuenta, sé que puedo contar con todo su apoyo y desde ya les agradezco de corazón su tiempo y valiosa contribución.
Paz, Ricky Martin"

"Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have brought terrible devastation— but also brought out the best in humanity. As former Presidents, we wanted to come together to help our fellow citizens in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean as they recover and rebuild.
Please give whatever you can. Every cent donated through the One America Appeal will help the victims recover. Thank you"
