Mark Cuban isn’t the only celebrity using his outrageous wealth to lend a hand to the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico last Wednesday, yet much of the island is still left without electricity and running water. This, of course, has left many of the island’s hospitals without power, and those that are running on generators have begun to run out of fuel.

“Thanks to singer @pitbull for lending your private plane to transport cancer patients from PR to USA so that they can get chemo,” Puerto Rico Congresswoman Jenniffer Gonzalez said in a tweet on Tuesday.

Pitbull, Cuban, Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez and Marc Anthony are among the celebrities joining the relief effort.
