Ricky Martin Joins Forces with Habitat For Humanity in Haiti and Chile Relief
Locally transplanted Puerto Rican superstar and Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin has always had a strong inclination toward philanthropic ambitions, frequently using his own dough and fame over the years to lend a helping hand to worthy causes. In fact, he has his very own organization, the Ricky Martin Foundation, which works to combat child trafficking, urges the third world to make advances in birth registration, stands up against violence against children, and helps provide education and health care for tots.
Ricky has recently teamed up with Habitat For Humanity in an effort to help rebuild Haiti and Chile in the wake of the recent earthquakes that devastated those countries. Here's a star-studded PSA calling for donations to aid in the efforts, and featuring the pop singer himself, as well as artists ranging from Residente Calle 13 to Juan Luis Guerra, Nelly Furtado to Luis Fonsi, Paulina Rubio to Carlos Santana, Enrique Iglesias to Juanes, Ruben Blades to Romeo from Aventura, and more.
