Tenor Placido Domingo is donating more than a quarter of a million dollars to help victims of the earthquake in Mexico and hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
$200,000 will go to Carlos Slim’s foundation, which matched that amount on a five-to-one basis for a total of $1.2-million. Domingo is also donating $50,000 through his foundation to the Mexican Red Cross and other groups helping in Puerto Rico. The so called “King of Opera” plans to donate proceeds from an upcoming concert to support victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
