Great Ways You Can Help The People Of Mexico And Puerto Rico

Please be generous. We appreciate it—and so do the people in these disaster zones!

It's been a tough few days for our fellow citizens and closest neighbors. Puerto Rico was struck by Hurricane Maria and the entire island lost power. Mexico City was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake, right on the heels of another major temblor in Mexico just a few days prior.

The Late Show family, including audience, staff, and Stephen himself, rallied to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts earlier this month. Your help is now needed in Mexico and Puerto Rico, too. If you're looking for a way to contribute, please consider one of these fine organization that have indicated they are ready to help earthquake and hurricane victims. Visit the websites to learn more about each organization, and to find out if donations are tax deductible in the U.S.

Note that some of the organizations, especially in Mexico, have websites written in Spanish, so we've indicated some that are in English. If you land on a Spanish language page and don't speak the language, many have a button or link marked "English" or "Inglés." Connections may be slow due to the infrastructure impact of the recent disasters and/or because many people are also giving generously.
