Since Hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico on September 20, a number of celebrities have been stepping up to help provide the aid and relief our fellow American citizens so desperately need. One of the most entertaining ways celebrities have started helping is with the #PuberMe campaign started by Stephen Colbert and Nick Kroll.
Last night, Lin-Manuel Miranda — who is in the midst of his own project to raise funds for Puerto Rico — contributed one of the best #PuberMe submissions the world has ever seen.
The #PuberMe campaign is a gift to the world — in more ways than one.

Miranda was there for a couple reasons. One was to promote his own fundraising project for Puerto Rico.
