Samsung, Best Buy Support Jennifer Lopez Charity

10/19/2011 02:45:16 PM Eastern

Los Angeles - Samsung and Best Buy have pledged to donate up
to $500,000 to support entertainer Jennifer Lopez's Maribel Foundation.

The nonprofit organization, co-founded by Lopez, is
dedicated to improving the health and well-being of women and children, and
raising the level of medical care available to them.

 To raise the funds, a
portion of the proceeds from the purchase of select Samsung products at all
Best Buy stores from Oct. 16-29 are being earmarked for the foundation. Maribel
will use the monies to help increase the number of telemedicine clinics in the
U.S. Samsung is supporting the effort through its Hope for Children philanthropic
initiative, which has helped more than 400 schools, community-based
foundations, and charities throughout the U.S. raise awareness of and funding
for their causes.

Lopez and her sister, broadcaster and Maribel co-founder and
executive director Lynda Lopez, will join executives from Best Buy and Samsung
at an Oct. 25 press event at a Best Buy store in West Hollywood to discuss the in-store
promotion. The first 200 fans in line for the event will receive a Jennifer
Lopez-autographed CD.
