While many people were focused on what the President did or didn’t do in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, Fat Joe and Tidal sprung into action. Lead largely by Fat Joe, Tidal, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo set out to fill as many jets like the one pictured above with supplies for Puerto Rico in the wake of the latest natural disaster.
As the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico grows, our brothers and sisters are desperate for our help. Please join myself, TIDAL, Governor Cuomo, and Ruben Diaz Jr. as we collect and transport much-needed supplies to the island. The goal is to fill and send as many cargo planes as possible. Donate or find your local drop-off location and help save lives. Head to TIDAL.com/PuertoRico. If you are in the New York area we are collecting non perishable items such as water, batteries, can foods, diapers,baby wipes, canned formula, etc. on September 30th at the Jacob Javits Center. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I promise all these items will be delivered by ME personally to Puerto Rico. God bless. #savepuertorico
While other Tidal artists like Rihanna also assisted in drawing attention to the many drop-off locations Tidal set up around New York September 30th, non-Tidal affiliates like Cardi B took part in the campaign as well. Per Variety, the first plane is scheduled to take off October 7th carrying 200,000 pounds of batteries, flashlights, portable lanterns, diapers, baby wipes, cases of water and feminine hygiene products.
Tidal has also announced the line-up for their Tidal X: Brooklyn concert with the expected performers like Jay-Z, Dj Khaled, and Fat Joe, but also some unexpected (Fifth Harmony and Iggy Azalea) and newcomers like Cardi B and Tee Grizzly. All proceeds from that concert will get to natural disaster relief not only including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, but also the earthquake of Mexico City. You can check out the rest of that lineup here.
