Latino Stars Who Have a Heart

Marc Anthony


Another Latino music celebrity who has turned their stardom into an opportunity to shed light on charitable causes, Marc Anthony has helped raise money and bring publicity to the cause of underprivileged children throughout Latin America. Anthony and his partner, Colombian-born entrepreneur Henry Cárdenas, founded the Maestro Cares Foundation in 2012. The Foundation helps other charities in Latin America that give assistance to children. In a 2012 fundraising effort, the foundation held an event in Chicago that raised over $100,000 to help complete facilities being built in the Dominican Republic at Orfanato Niños de Cristo (Children of Christ Ophanage).
