Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is opening up his wallet to help the victims of Hurricane Maria.
With a donation of $100,000 to the region, Diddy joins the ranks of other celebrities who have worked to provide relief to the country.
Last month, the island of Puerto Rico was left in dire need after the storm, and many celebrities have stepped up to help the region rebuild while criticizing President Donald Trump’s response to provide aid to the U.S. territory.
Diddy reiterated his desire to help and said in a statement, “I have a certain relationship with the Puerto Rican community that I’ve had all my life, just growing up as a kid. We’re all together at the end of the day, and I was just feeling concerned and just wanting to do something. I saw the news not reporting about our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico. We can’t wait for the government to come help us. If we have the power to give some help, we need to try to do what we can in all tragic situations for other people that need it…”
Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez announced last month that she was donating $1 million to organizations working to provide relief to the island. In addition to her donation, Lopez and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez are working to garner support from their circle of business and personal relationships, and Lopez and ex-husband Marc Anthony formed a relief alliance to aid the ravaged island.
