Madonna announced that she has donated $250,000 to help the people of Haiti and she is urging her friends and family to do the same. The singer says she donated to Partners in Health, a longtime health care provider in Haiti — and the same organization Meryl Streep mentioned in her Golden Globes acceptance speech last night.
“I urge all of my friends and fans around the world to join me collectively to match my contribution or give in any way you can,” Madonna said. “We must act now.”
Madonna joins other generous celebrities who are taking action in light of the earthquake that devastated the Caribbean nation on Tuesday.
What a great example Madonna is setting for her kids — let’s hope more people accept her challenge and donate generously.
