Madonna Gives To Italy Quake Victims

Madonna Gives To Italy Quake Victims

Madonna leaves an office building in London and heads home on Wednesday (April 8).

According to the Associated Press, the 50-year-old singer pledged a “substantial amount” to the small mountain village of Pacentro where Madonna‘s grandparents were born. The mayor of the small Italian town noted $500,000 as being the amount and said most of the donation will go to towns that were harder hit.

In a statement, Madonna 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.”

Well done Madge!

Good for her, but when celebs give money like that why do they have to make sure everyone knows about it?

That’s great of her.

@ me

The mayor of the city actually pleaded publicly to Madonna to donate money…so if she didn’t make it public that she donated, people would say she was a heartless ***** for not helping out…that’s why she made sure everyone knew about it.
jeez, people will criticize EVERYTHING!

I’m Italian and I really appreciate!
When the floor shake under your feet and your house is completly destroyed you don’t care if she did it for publicity!
We just need some help!
Most people right now sleep in their cars because they don’t have a house or just because they are afraid that there might be another earthquake! So every dollar/euro counts! Thanks!

ill let this 1 go ugly twat faced ho

i can barely type this………….
good j…o….b butter face =D

good for her. she’s always been very generous with her time and money since the 80′s for charitable causes.

publicity stunt!! Now go and aopt in the Us, theres a lot of little white kids and little black kids (if she just has to have a black kid)! I know as a black kid i wouldnt want to be subject to all the racism from white folks as a kid. i think every black person has been subject to the n word and the welfare crap and the fried chicken and monkey crap, so money or not give me my black family ,, we will struggle together.. fuc* white racist azz folks! the only time they aint racist is when the white woman dates the black man.. and we all what that is all about! And lets dont even talk about what you racist say behind closed doors,, all i can say look in the damn mirror!!

This is very much her way. Those of us who have followed her from way back when she began knows she is not stingy.

Thank you Madonna.

what’s up with the hate from the hateful bpeople? Madonna will have another child if not by adoption then she will do in vitro or have a surragacy.

Dear cutie pie seek help and maybe therapy will help you understand that people hate you not because you are black but because you are stupid. Skin colour has nothing to do with it since what who wrote wether in its content or form ( approximative english) could have been written by any far right racist red neck.

Madonna looking fine! shes always going about her work, I love to see her single and busy.

We can’t believe the hysteria we’re reading it’s priceless!

Madonna has not got an ugly twat face, Sienna Miller has.

i love this woman.

Madonna is Love.

It’s called “putting your money where your mouth is” and it’s fantastic for the people that are in great need at the moment in that part of the world. TALK IS CHEAP and this great woman walks the walk and talks the talk. She inspires me.

How people can just talk about how she looks or wears? This heartquake here in Italy is a tremendous tragedy and we are all shocked…Do you just care about last Prada’s bag?

God bless Madonna. She’s very generous. I love her! She’s the best!

and cutiepie,get a life!
