If you’ve been keeping up with the news, or even with trending hashtags, chances are you’ve been seeing a lot about one topic in particular.
In Puerto Rico, category 4 hurricane Maria tore through the island leaving it in almost apocalyptic conditions. Left in the dark and with little resources at their immediate disposal, the people of Puerto Rico are in desperate need of help.
On September 25th, Tony Diaz, guitarist in State Champs (@RivaLDiaz on twitter), posted a thread on Twitter talking about how he and his family are personally affected by the devastating conditions overseas and how he plans to help. He stated:
At this point everyone knows about the decimation. And my heart breaks for everyone there. But I want to get personal about it-— RIVAL (@RivalDiaz) September 26, 2017
I'm going to do a charity stream this week to raise money for relief. You don't have to watch it, I'll even link the charities on here— RIVAL (@RivalDiaz) September 26, 2017
But this is something that means a lot to me. My country needs help. And I hope you'll consider donating.— RIVAL (@RivalDiaz) September 26, 2017
His charity stream for Puerto Rico will take place today, September 27th, 1PM EST and continue into the late evening the same day. You can watch and contribute at https://go.twitch.tv/RIVALXDIAZ.
