Shakira's $40 Million Donation

Shakira's $40 Million Donation

Her hips don’t rest and, it seems, neither does her power to do good!

Shakira meets with Mayor Bloomberg at City Hall Thursday to announce a $40 million donation she’s making to aid relief efforts in earth-quake-ravaged Peru and hurricane-stricken Nicaragua. The gift is from a foundation co-created by the Columbian native — The Latin America for Solidarity Foundation.

$5 additional million will be spent on health and education in four Latin American countries. And on Saturday, Shakzilla will also host a discussion on youth activism at the Clinton Global Initiative.

====================================

So, how much she did donate from her OWN pocket?

IM FROM PERU AND THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE LOST EVERYTHING INCLUDING THEIR ENTIRE FAMILIES IN THIS EARTHQUAKE. GOD BLESS HER AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT IS HELPING US OVERCOME THIS DISASTER.

What part of “The gift is from a FOUNDATION she helped co-create” did you guys not understand??? Reading comprehension is severely lacking it seems. Of course it isn’t 40 million straight from her own pocket – she isn’t THAT rich.

Somehow I doubt Shakira has ANYTHING to do with money connected to her boyfriend’s father.

Another wonderful woman making a difference in the world today – BRAVA SHAKIRA! Her hips don’t lie cuz she’s walking the walk, just like Angie and Brad.

Wow! She’s amazing to give so much money for those in need! In my eyes, she even better than Angelina Jolie.

It’s not 40 big ones out of her own pocket but from a GROUP that participates in a foundation. I have no doubt that her contribution is sizeable. You rock Shakira!

________________________________

She made twice that much on her last album – Yes she has that much money. Britany brings in $737,000.00 a month on royalities. The pop, Rap and, rock and roll bands like U2 are worth Hundred of millions.
That’s why they are richer then movie stars like Jolie, Pitt and Cruise but, not Oprah.

Hey Jared! Love the fact that you’re posting on Shakira’s good deeds. Only thing: it is spelt COLOMBIAN (with an “O”) and not COLUMBIAN ;-)

She also has more class then Angelina!!!

i have to say,i’m astonished.she’s such a beautiful talented person,and such a smart girl too.i’m so glad she’s being so generious
