Dear friends,
Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria, and the island desperately need us. This is a humanitarian crisis affecting 3.5 million people. The power grid is destroyed, food and water are in short supply and we all need to work together now. For this reason, I created this page to collect funds and my donation of $100,000 is already in, as well as the generous donations from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and many others.
The Ricky Martin Foundation team on the ground is already working with the local government, local volunteers and the First Lady of Puerto Rico to provide urgently needed food, water, clothing and medical supplies. Next week, thanks to our corporate partners, we’re sending relief planes full of the most urgently needed supplies, and partnering with Music For Relief and We Care Solar to provide solar suitcases filled with light & hope to our communities, which are literally in the dark. For the longterm, we'll partner with Habitat for Humanity once rebuilding is able to start, just like we did after the tsunami in Thailand and the earthquake in Haiti. Protecting our children and citizens is vital after natural disasters. Without a home nor basic human needs, everyone is vulnerable to human trafficking.
We’ll add additional partners once needs can be fully assessed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your invaluable and much needed contribution.

Peace, Ricky Martin

At least some people are actually helping, unlike Trump. God Bless Puerto Rico.
