Bad Bunny is warming our hearts and making a difference for a survivor of the Uvalde school shooting in Texas.
As noted by E! News, the musician and his Good Bunny Foundation, plus reggaetón musicians Mandel and Wisin, chipped in to help purchase a new home for 10-year-old Mayah Zamora and her family. Mayah, who was seriously injured in the shooting, previously lived close to the shooter and didn’t want to go back to her home, so a group gathered together to help her family buy a new house and relocate to an area that made Mayah feel safe and secure.
The effort to help Mayah and her family was also supported by Minnesota Twins player Carlos Correa and his Correa Family Foundation, as well as a handful of other donors, including the Houston Astros and Twins. The foundation named Mayah the August Hero of the Month; she threw the first pitch at an Astros game and was treated to a VIP backstage experience where she got to pose with Bad Bunny before his concert.
“A huge thank you to @badbunnypr for welcoming our Hero of the Month, Mayah Zamora, to your concert, and for making sure she had a beautiful and fun night dancing with her family!” the foundation wrote on Instagram. In the pics, we see Mayah posing with Benito and showing off a signed shirt. E! News shares that the megastar provided Mayah and her family with a suite and dinner before the show, too.
“It’s an important day for me, but I wanted to make it extra special for her,” Correa said of the experience. “After everything she went through, the battle she went through, and now she’s here with us. We want to celebrate life and celebrate her life. She’s here with us and we’re here to support her all the way through. It’s not just by helping with the house, but helping with whatever they need.”
