It’s always great to hear about celebrities doing good deeds. And this week, Daddy Yankee has become our latest Agente de Cambio. El Big Boss just announced a major partnership with the Red Cross, which will help provide for Puerto Ricans in need.

DY held a press conference announcing the news and specifically called out to his younger fans, encouraging them to do charitable work.

“I’m part of the Red Cross, because I love service,” he said. “The message is simple: trying to raise awareness among the youth and have them be better acquainted with the Red Cross, and through the social networks I always try to (help) people know more.”

Yankee will be part of a new Red Cross “Unete” campaign specifically targeting Puerto Rico. And to help sweeten the deal, he kicked off a contest that will give one public school some VIP time with El Big Boss.
