Artists and Designers Rally to Help Hurricane Maria Victims in Puerto Rico

FOR A GREATER GOOD: Rather than just talk about concern for Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico, hairstylist Dana Boyer and makeup artist Erin Green agreed a fund-raiser was in order.
With the help of Pace Gallery’s shipping manager Tim Strazza and independent producer Travis Kiewel, their NY4PR event will be held Nov. 2 at Think!Chinatown x ChaShaMa space at 384 Broadway. All proceeds from the event will benefit Unidos/The Hispanic Foundation. Seventy artists, photographers and contributors have already signed on and between 200 and 300 supporters are expected.
With only 2 percent of schools open, and electricity still a problem for most of Puerto Rico, Boyer said of the upcoming fund-raiser: “It felt important. It felt that it needed to happen.”
The roster of participants includes Inez & Vinoodh, Bibi Cornejo-Borthwick, Curtis Kulig, Tim Barber, Petra Collins, Daniel Shea, Lachlan Bailey, Dan Martensen, Jay Miriam, Meriem Bennani, Paul Wackers, Chad Moore, Signe Pierce, Daniel Arnold and Joe Garvey. From the fashion and beauty crowd, Trademark, Joanna Vargas, Alumnae, Catbird, Nova and Anna Sheffield will be contributing items for the auction. Donations will also be accepted at the door with NY4PR aiming to raise upwards of $ 60,000, Boyer said.

Latino Celebrities Travel to Puerto Rico Together for Hurricane Maria Relief

Brought to you by the editors of People en Español.

Some of the biggest Latin stars in the entertainment industry embarked on a flight to Puerto Rico on Monday to help the victims of Hurricane Maria.

Ricky Martin, Nicky Jam, Luis Fonsi, Chayanne, Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan, among others, boarded Jet Blue’s “Precious Airplane” in Fort Lauderdale bound for San Juan, Puerto Rico. Aside from the celebs, the aircraft carried a load of food, water and other necessities that will be distributed to those in need.

“The idea is to bring help to the people of Puerto Rico and at the same time, bring awareness to the entire world about the humanitarian crisis that is happening on the island,” said Armando Correa, editor in chief of People en Español, who also took part in the trip.

“More than one million Puerto Ricans are without drinking water, without electricity, without food,” he added. “In the United States, many have been unable to communicate with their families for more than a week, without knowing the conditions they have been in since the hurricane.”

The flight arrived at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport early Monday morning and immediately upon arrival, the celebrity passengers attended a press conference at the terminal.

Earlier in the morning, the stars started sharing photos of their journey to the island. “Here we go #PuertoRico #allin4PR,” Ricky Martin wrote in a caption beside a photo of him sitting near Chayanne, Nicky Jam and Luis Fonsi on the aircraft. Fonsi captioned a photo on his Instagram page, “FINALLY WE ARRIVED. It’s time to work. United we are bigger.”

The trip was sponsored by Jetblue’s 100x35JetBlue program, which the airline established to help relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The name of the program refers to the company’s commitment to aiding Puerto Rico over the next 100 days through 35 initiatives “to support the urgent needs of their crewmembers and customers as well as communities in Puerto Rico,” their website reads.

Mika Brzezinski Says ‘Trump’s Racism Is Costing Lives’ in Puerto Rico as He Responds to Widespread Backlash Over Response

On Saturday, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski criticized how Donald Trump’s actions were negatively affecting Puerto Rico just as the president went on a tweet storm in response to the backlash he has received for his perceived lackluster response to the crisis there.

“Hard to believe but this could be worse than Charlottesville… Trump’s racism is costing lives. #heisnotfit,” Brzezinski wrote, referencing the white nationalist march in Virginia in August and Trump’s widely criticized response where he failed to initially outright condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

So far Hurricane Maria — which ravaged the island on Sept. 20, leaving the entire island without electricity and destroying many homes — has claimed at least 16 lives in Puerto Rico so far, the Associated Press reports. Experts estimate that without electricity and supplies, that number could increase to thousands.

While Brzezinski didn’t elaborate on her claims about Trump being a “racist,” she is hardly the first person to speak out about his response to the storm. Dozens of officials and celebrities have criticized Trump for seemingly ignoring the crisis after the storm hit and, on Saturday morning, many more chimed in to condemn him after he slammed the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz, for speaking out against him and begging for more aid.

On Saturday afternoon the president responded to the widespread backlash against his handling of the situation in Puerto Rico — insisting that he had been working with local officials to ensure that they were getting the help they needed.

“Despite the Fake News Media in conjunction with the Dems, an amazing job being done in Puerto Rico. Great people!” he wrote.

Trump also complimented Puerto Rico’s governor Ricardo Rossello, who said that the federal government has been helping the commonwealth with their recovery effort — but that they still needed more aid.

“The Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rossello, is a great guy and leader who is really working hard. Thank you Ricky!” Trump said.

“Just spoke to Governor Kenneth Mapp of the U.S. virgin Islands who stated that #FEMA and Military are doing a GREAT job! Thank you Governor!” Trump continued.

”To the people of Puerto Rico: Do not believe the #FakeNews! #PRStrong” he continued. “We must all be united in offering assistance to everyone suffering in Puerto Rico and elsewhere in the wake of this terrible disaster.”

Brzezinski, who has publicly clashed with the president in the past — and even becoming the target of some of his meaner tweets — responded to Trump’s defense saying it was “too late” and that “no one” believed him.

“Too late. No one believes you now,” she wrote. “But what else is new? #heisnotfit.”

Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico on Sept. 20 with ferocious 155-mph winds that ripped trees from the ground, tore roofs from buildings, and caused flooding that made many streets look like raging rivers. The most powerful storm of its kind to hit the island since 1932, it ravaged the island and left millions homeless.

Electricity has been knocked out completely, with residents in need of electricity having to rely on backup generators. Experts estimate it could take half a year to restore power to the 3.5 million people who live there. Cell phone service has also been completely shut down.
