In mid-September, Hurricane Maria swept through the Caribbean, leaving a path of destruction in its wake, and washing out the entire island of Puerto Rico.
The U.S. territory is home to more than 3.4 million people who have been left stranded for weeks, with more than 92 percent of the island still without electricity, extremely limited access to food and water, and very little relief from the motherland—the continental U.S.
The calamitous storm has left at least 45 dead across the Caribbean.

But not all hope is lost, as more and more Hollywood names are stepping up to support our neighbors in Puerto Rico, and help rebuild what Bethenny Frankel calls a “forgotten island.”
