Rapper Fat Joe Delivering Supplies To Puerto Rico

The response time to Puerto Rico’s disaster wasn’t exactly prompt so someone had to do something and that is exactly when Fat Joe stepped in.

The rapper Fat Joe is a legend in the rap game. He has delivered us countless songs that are truly unforgettable and we’ve listened to his music for many years. Fat Joe is definitely beloved in the rap game and now he’s beloved for his actions for Puerto Rico as well. Fat Joe is Puerto Rican and helped out the island in a major way after it was dealt a devastating blow by Hurricane Maria. The response time to Puerto Rico’s disaster wasn’t exactly prompt so someone had to do something and that is exactly when Fat Joe stepped in.

 

The Puerto Rican rapper had to enlist the help of his friend Jay-Z and the company Tidal to try and help fundraise 200,000 pounds of supplies so that they could send a plane to Puerto Rico. He was nervous and didn’t know if he would be able to come through with the supplies that were needed in a fast enough time.

 

They decided to use Tidal to collect donations from New York and even the Governor Andrew Cuomo jumped in and began to help. Pitbull eventually jumped on board as did Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. By the end of the day what Fat Joe accomplished was truly amazing. He didn’t get 200,000 pounds for one plane, he got a million pounds on five planes. Also, he is now expected to be able to load up five more planes and send a million more. In total Fat Joe will send two million pounds of supplies to the desperate Puerto Rico.
The desperate Puerto Ricans will now get water, canned food, women’s hygienes and toothpaste all thanks to the Terror Squad rapper who decided to step to the plate and really do something.

When most people think of rappers they think of them as bad guys but Fat Joe has proved otherwise thanks to his charitable actions and helping out a desperate island in this time of need. Puerto Rico still is in need of donations so if you could take after this great man and donate some supplies to the island of Puerto Rico it would be very much appreciated by everyone, especially Fat Joe.

 

What Fat Joe was able to accomplish is truly inspiring. It really goes to show you what happens when you put your mind to something. Nothing feels better than truly helping people who are in need and no one knows that better than the amazing Fat Joe. Jay-Z is fantastic as well for agreeing to use Tidal to help collect donations and without a doubt, their actions have had a huge impact on the island and they will continue to make an impact with their charitable donations and not with their music. They’re not just legends in the industry, now they’re legends in the face of adversity.

A Quiet Bethlehem This 2020 Christmas Celebration

Published

on

Sans the influx of tourists in the historical birthplace of Christ, a quiet Bethlehem community gets to experience a renewal in faith over a boom in business.

Prior to the pandemic, the Palestinian city located in occupied West Bank was always filled with visiting tourists who wanted to experience walking in the land of Jesus Christ’s official birthplace. In the past, those who wanted to visit the Church of the Nativity were forced to maneuver through the crowds teeming the streets of Bethlehem. This year, however, a quiet Bethlehem becomes largely part of the massive lockdown and quarantine restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Nevertheless, the absence of tourists is an opportunity for renewal, says Father Rami Asakrieh, the parish priest of Bethlehem. “Sometimes there are more than half million people who arrive in this period to visit the Nativity Church,” he recounts.

During the days leading to Christmas, however, the Church of the Nativity has been so silent, devoid of the yearly visiting faithful who traditionally visited Bethlehem from all over the world. A quiet Bethlehem, then, is a new thing for the community as locals are used to the noisy throng of commuters and visitors who annually arrived during the holiday season.

Armenian prayers are recited by four (4) monks below the Grotto of the Nativity, echoing through the typically crowded vicinity. Even during this year’s Christmas Eve, the most essential part of the celebration, the church was closed to the public. The lack of yearly visits from Palestinian authority representatives starkly reiterated the difference of this year’s celebration, as well.

“It has never happened before,” contemplates Asakrieh, as he mentions that the only times that the church was forced to close its doors were during periods of uprisings and Palestinian intifadas that were done in protest against Israel’s continued occupation.

“I think that this Christmas is different because people are not busy with the external manifestations of the feast,” the priest shares, referring to the customary purchasing of gifts and the conduct of extravagant get-togethers that have long been linked to Christmas celebrations.  “Now (people) have the time, and they are obligated, to concentrate on the essential… the theological spirit of Christmas,” he expressed. “Less business, but more religion,” Asakrieh continues.

During the days leading up to Christmas, the chapel of Saint Catherine, a small one that is next to the Church of the Nativity was made open to the local Bethlehem public. Amid a distinctively quiet Bethlehem atmosphere, many of the local faithful turned up as they donned their Sunday’s best.

One of them was Nicolas al-Zoghbi who mentions that the usual joy of the Christmas season was replaced by the overall feeling of depression. He shares that his son is among those who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic. “We hope the Lord will destroy corona, just get rid of it so we can return to our previous life,” states al-Zoghbi who is now in his 70s.

The city’s economy is hugely reliant on the annual influx of visitors who purchase items like rosaries and other Nativity-based trinkets from the shops and stands that pepper the place. Thus, a quiet Bethlehem during this holiday season signifies a highly decreased income for those who rely on the earnings that used to be generated from these yearly tourist visits.
