Daddy Yankee Lends a Hand to Latin Schools
The reggaeton star took his campaign to Colombia to improve education facilities in the country
A few years ago in Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee started up Blimblineando Escuelas, a campaign that collects basic-needs items for schools with limited resources. According to a press release, the reggaeton star now plans to take his program to other countries in Latin America, and he's made Colombia the latest site for his charitable work.
The 30-year-old musician made a donation to the school Cristo Rey in Tutunedo, Chocó, to aid in the construction of bathrooms and to create an overall more welcoming study environment at the school. Colombian actress Marcela Mar received the donation from the artist's foundation, Corazón Guerrero, at the La Fontana hotel in Bogotá.
Before performing in the Colombian cities Medellín, Bogotá and Cali, the reggaetonero took some time to have a good time by shooting hoops in the South American country.
