Jennifer Lopez just pledged a bunch of money for Puerto Rico relief efforts

Jennifer Lopez has had a great career — and a lot to show for it financially.

Now the actress/entertainer is giving back.

Though Lopez is a native New Yorker (Bronx girl, actually), both her parents are Puerto Rican, and on Sunday she announced that she was pledging a whopping $1 million toward Hurricane Maria relief efforts.

Lopez announced during a press conference with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo that she would give 100 percent of proceeds from her Las Vegas residency “All of Me.” The money will go to various “designated beneficiaries, charities and NGO [non governmental organizations],” she promised. 

Seems with JLo charity begins at home — and with her boyfriend.

The “If You Had My Love” singer added that Alex Rodriguez, who was born in NYC but has a Dominican background, will also be contributing monetarily to the cause.

Other bold faced names with ties to Puerto Rico helping include Ricky Martin, who has already donated $100,000, and Daddy Yankee, who is sending four truckloads of supplies donated by his fans.
