Madonna Spreads Christmas Cheer to Orphans in MalawiMariaLianos
Madonna spread her Christmas cheer to 25,000 orphans in Malawi.
She shipped boxes of toys, clothes and chocolate to six orphanages in Malawi, the birth country of her adopted daughter Mercy.
“To my Malawi children on Christmas and Boxing Day. I wish I was with you. See you soon, M,” Madonna wrote in a note which was included with the packages.
Officials at Madonna’s charity, Raising Malawi, received and distributed the items to the children.
Mini Christmas cards were included, signed by the star herself and her children Lourdes, 14, and Rocco, 10.
The notes read: “Mercy, David, Rocco, Lourdes and I send you a blessed Christmas to all of you!
The 52-year-old singer and her kids donated clothes have outgrown and can no longer wear.
The Material Girl also threw an open-air party at Consol Homes, an orphanage near Lilongwe, the town where she teaches a Kabbalah spirituality class to children.
Over 1,000 people from the surrounding villages were invited to celebrate with the 2,500 orphans and underprivileged children.
“Madonna says she always enjoys the traditional dances the villagers perform for her when she visits,” Yacinta Chapomba, director of Consol Homes, tells Us. “She asked us to invite as many villagers as possible for the Christmas party.”
