Ricky Martin's Kids Design Shirt to Help Victims of Hurricane Maria
Ricky Martin's latest project is aiming to raise funds for Puerto Rico by selling t-shirts designed by his twins, Matteo and Valentino.
Since Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria last year, Ricky Martin has been at the forefront of relief efforts, traveling frequently to his home island to help rebuild houses, raise money, and increase awareness of the continuing struggle there.
Earlier this month, the gay dad of two announced his most recent effort to support the cause, a campaign called "De mi familia a tu familia" (From my family to your family). The project is aiming to raise funds for Puerto Rico by selling t-shirts designed by his twins, Matteo and Valentino.
On the anniversary of the hurricane, the singer took to twitter, writing: "this is stronger than me. I could not wait another day. A year later, we FOLLOW #Allin4PR. The number of deaths after hurricane Maria was high, but the spirit of my people is UNBREAKABLE."
He continued, writing: "As we continue to strengthen hearts and demand hope, we still need your help. Therefore, from my family to yours, I share with you a symbol of hope, our beautiful flag, painted by my children. All proceeds from the limited edition of this shirt help the Ricky Martin Foundation continue to provide sustenance – not only in the reconstruction of homes in Loíza, but for emotional healing and social transformation."
