We'll never think of the question "How deep is your love?" the same way again. A Puerto Rican woman just redefined what love means by making the ultimate commitment to her island. Mariposa Fernandez, an activist living in the Bronx, New York, married Puerto Rico!
But she didn't make the decision because she's lost her mind. It was actually a genius way to help the people who were devastated by this year's natural disasters.
“The wedding came out of the tragedy and the horror of Hurricane Irma and Maria,” Fernandez told News 12 The Bronx.
“We were hit not just by one hurricane, but two, and I saw that there was just a need to bring people together.”
"I've been sending little packages, a lot of seeds," she told News 12 The Bronx.
Fernandez opened a wedding registry on Amazon where guests (and now the general public!) can buy items to help the people of Puerto Rico.

“I am in love! In love with Puerto Rico, my homeland, the place of my family origin, my ancestry and my rich heritage. HOME. I am in love!" Fernandez wrote on the page.
Fernandez not only urged visitors to buy items from the Amazon list, she also suggested other ways people can give support through monetary contributions.
We have to give Fernandez major props for the bold move she made to make sure Puerto Rico's recovery remains a priority in the public's mind.
"I hope this idea is replicated and goes viral," she wrote on Amazon. We think that just might happen.
