Celebrities snap up Ricky Martin’s charity T-shirt

Ricky Martin’s celebrity friends have thrown their weight behind the singer’s Hurricane Maria fundraising efforts by snapping up the T-shirt his twin sons designed.

A year on from the devastating hurricane that ravaged the star’s native Puerto Rico, Ricky and his 10-year-old boys Valentino and Matteo are making sure money is still helping those affected.

Valentino and Matteo drew the Puerto Rican flag that features on the T-shirts, and stars like Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is of Puerto Rican descent, Nicole Scherzinger and Ricky’s American Crime Story co-star Edgar Ramirez have all posed for photos wearing the black tee, with the Livin’ la Vida Loca hitmaker thanking them all on his Instagram account.


“Esooooo essss!!! Muchas gracias @lin_manuel and @vegalteno for being #ALLin4PR,” Ricky wrote next to a snap of Lin-Manuel and his dad Luis Miranda posing in the shirt. “To get your T-shirt go to link in bio or visit charitystars.com/Ricky A great gift for the holidays!!!”

He also thanked Nicole for her support, after she praised Ricky for his charity efforts.

“So proud of the beautiful work you’re doing my friend @ricky_martin. Honoured to join the cause helping to reshape hearts, reclaim hope & transform lives! Check out @rm_foundation to find out how you can support too! #ALLin4PR,” she posted.

Other stars to get on board include Will Smith, Sean Penn, Carrie Underwood and Billie Joe Armstrong, as well as Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls and actress Gina Rodriguez, who parents come from the Caribbean island.

The T-shirt is available in male and female cuts, a long-sleeved option and a children’s version. Prices range from $21.99 (£17) to $29.99 (£23).
