Madonna donates to Earthquake victims


Madonna may have been denied the chance to provide a home for a Malawian child but instead she’s giving a charitable hand to help countless others rebuild their lives.

The Material Girl has made a substantial donation to aid victims of Monday’s earthquake in the mountainous Abruzzo region of Italy that has left 200 dead and an estimated 50,000 people homeless.

Although the actual sum of the contribution has not been disclosed, it has been reported to be around $500,000.

The singer, whose grandparents originally hail from the aforementioned province said: “I am happy to lend a helping hand to the town that my ancestors are from.

“My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones or their homes.”

Good to know the singer is putting her millions of dollars to some good use.
