Now we know why he’s Mr. Worldwide.
‘Cause Pitbull don’t mind lending a hand to any area that needs it. And right now his goodness has reached our backyard aka Puerto Rico.
The “Give Me Everything” rapper used his private jet to round up cancer patients, affected by Hurricane Maria, in Puerto Rico and transport them to the US for chemotherapy treatment.
And shrugged off the gesture as if he was giving them a lift to the grocery store, which would also be helpful.
“Thank God we’re blessed to help. Just doing my part,” Pitbull told The New York Daily News.
It didn’t go unnoticed—Puerto Rico Congresswoman Jenniffer Gonzalez thanked the rapper for his good deed via Twitter, writing (en Espanol, of course) “Thank you @pitbull for lending your private plane to move cancer patients from PR to USA so that they can get chemo.”
Pitbull’s generous gesture is one of many A-list celebs are unfurling to Puerto Rico like a red carpet at the Oscars. Hence, Despacito singer Daddy Yankee donating $1 million to Hurricane Maria relief efforts.
On Sunday, Jennifer Lopez joined forces with New York governor Andrew Cuomo to motivate New Yorkers to help those suffering in Puerto Rico. Oh, she also donated $1 million to charities and NGO org.
