Univision and Telemundo have announced that they will support the victims of the recent natural disasters in Latin America (Puerto Rico and Mexico) and the United States (Texas and Florida) with charity programs over the weekend:
Univision will air on Saturday from 7:00pm ET a seven-hour special titled “Unidos por los Nuestros” [United for Our People]. The funds raised during the broadcast will go to the American Red Cross and its relief efforts in the areas most affected by the two earthquakes in Mexico, Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and Hurricane Irma in Florida.
Telemundo will broadcast on Sunday at 7:00pm “Todos Unidos” [All United], a four-hour program focused on helping victims in Mexico and Puerto Rico, as well as Texas and Florida, led by [celebrity] Don Francisco. Ricardo Montaner, Yuri, Elvis Crespo, Ana María Polo, Adamari López, Carlos Ponce, María Celeste Arrarás, José Díaz-Balart, Gabriel Porras and Gaby Espino are some of the stars that will participate in the initiative.
Alan Tacher, Chiquinquirá Delgado, Lili Estefan, Raúl de Molina, Jorge Ramos, and María Elena Salinas are among the figures who will participate in the Univision program, which will include links from Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Mexico City, Puerto Rico, and other locations. The special show will also be seen by Univision Deportes (UDN) and Univision NOW.
“It will be a special program where the only protagonist will be the embrace of solidarity, words of encouragement, and the invitation to be generous with our brothers and sisters,” Don Francisco said Thursday in a statement. “We at Telemundo feel committed as a vehicle to serve our community and those who need us most, especially in times as difficult as these.”
