Britney Spears Donates $25,000 to Idol Gives Back

Britney Spears was so moved by the stories told on Idol Gives Back on Wednesday, April 9, that she donated $25,000.

“She did it all on her own. She watched the show and cried for like two hours over the children in Africa with malaria,” a Spears family insider tells Life & Style. “She didn’t know much about the disease, so she Googled it. She was horrified to realize kids were dying from mosquito bites. So she went online and donated after getting [her dad] Jamie‘s permission. She used her Amex.”

A rep for FOX declined to comment. Goooooooooo, Brit Brit!

Thanks Britney. Peace

It kinda shocks me sometimes about how little people know about the world. She’s how old and just learning about malaria? Like wow.

But good for her for donating money. Lots of people know and still do nothing.

Her situation sounds like it is turning around. It makes me sick when I think about the media when she was so badly off–just egging her on, using her and making money from her misery. Don’t know much about Britney, but do know that she is making strides in conquering her demons.

it’s cool of her … just dad people like CZJ and michael douglas, or george clooney do it all the time.. and they don’t get nearly as much recognition as she does for once..and WOW she doesn’t know what malaria! is.. i’m 14 and I’Ve known for ever… hope she’S feeling better though anyway

no she didn’t. one of her handlers donated the money – in her name – for good press. DUH

Go Britney!! Right On!!

Aww!! soo sweet!! GO BRIT!!

sounds like a lot of money. is this because she wants to make up for all the bad things she’ve done? well i hope this not just an act just to make ppl love her again. but thats sweet of her. i hope she realizes how many ppl she cud actually help in that amount of money. and i hope she feels good abt it and continues her charity work.after all the money she’s making is too much.

love ya brit!! way to go!

Good Britney Spears press, like the good old days, thank god.

I do think that 25k is abit cheap for someone who rakes in 750k a month.

That’s nice of her, but how can she not know about malaria?

Britney has always given to charity wayyyyy before it was the cool thing to do! ie Angelina
I don’t think this story is true! Why r ppl always hatin on her

She dint know!

for the ppl who think she is using this as publicity need to check their facts! britney has always given a lot of her money to charity unlike those stars that organize benefits but never give any of their own money up:)

Of course if true, they just HAD to leak it to the press. It doesn’t count if people don’t know about it.

$25,000 from Shitney isn’t very much.

How much did she give to any charity last year? Anything?

Making fun of Britney isn’t fun anymore because she’s too much of a train wreck.

it’s good she donated but…she just learned about it NOW?
no wonder this girl is sooooo disconnected, she lives on another planet…

that’s nice of her.
