Kailyn Lowry is, for whatever reason, one of the most hated of all the Teen Moms.
Which is weird, because when was the last time you saw one of the moms put in so much work for such an important cause?
Over the weekend, Kailyn, along with Jo Rivera and Vee Torres, hosted an event to raise money for Puerto Rico, which is still suffering after the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
And the details are just so very, very touching …
1. Hurricane Maria
In September, Hurricane Maria caused an unprecedented amount of damage in Puerto Rico. Dozens of people were killed, and dozens more are still missing. Even now, much of the island is left without power and clean water.
2. Teen Moms Help Out
Shortly after the hurricane, Kailyn and Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell began working on fundraising ideas — they even asked their social media followers for help in chartering a ship or a plane to deliver supplies to Puerto Rico!
3. A Plan
After a bit of planning, Kailyn announced what she’d come up with: she would team up with her ex, Jo Rivera, and his fiancée, Vee Torres, to host a fundraiser!
Kailyn, Jo, and Vee held their fundraiser on Saturday night in Bloomfield, New Jersey — look how great they all look together!
5. $ $ $
Guests could make a $ 50 donation ahead of the gala, or they could pay $ 60 at the door. A portion of that money went towards Americares, a non-profit disaster relief organization that’s working in Puerto Rico right now. The rest of the money went towards their next fundraiser — more on that in a moment!
6. The Details!
Kailyn exclusively spoke to us about the event, explaining how it went and why it was important to her. “Catelynn and I really wanted to come up with a relief fund after what happened in Puerto Rico,” she explained. “Since Jo’s family resides in Puerto Rico, we had to reach out to him and see what they needed and what we could do to help.”
