Sugarpova profits for Puerto Rico relief


Maria Sharapova has extended a helping hand to help the people of Puerto Rico.

The 30-year-old Russian, who visited the island last December to play an exhibition with the country’s biggest tennis star, Monica Puig, is helping Puig’s fundraising efforts in the wake of the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria.


Sharapova announced on Facebook Monday that she will donate all profits from her Sugarpova candy brand from today until the end of the year to support Puig’s hurricane fund.

The fun, which had an original goal of $25,000, already is at nearly $100,000, and growing. 

For those in Beijing, Sharapova’s candy is available there.
