Singer Ricky Martin Joins Efforts to Build Pulse Memorial

Ricky Martin is now the spokesperson for a foundation that is building a memorial and museum to honor the 49 victims who died during the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando.

In the unpaid position, Martin will make public service announcements promoting tolerance and also support the foundation by making social media posts, taping video messages and possibly narrating some exhibitions, foundation officials said.

The goal of the campaign is to raise $49 million, with proceeds going toward building a permanent National Pulse Memorial & Museum. So starting tomorrow on Valentine's Day, the foundation is launching a fundraising campaign with a goal of getting 1 million people to donate $49.
