Madonna on Raising Malawi: Will You Join Me?

Madonna on Raising Malawi: Will You Join Me?

Madonna has taken to the Huffington Post to write a call to action on Wednesday (October 28).

“I am making a straightforward request,” the 51-year-old Material Mom wrote. “I’m writing to urge you to join me in saving the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children. And I’m asking you to do it right away.”

Already pledging $100,000 to match outside donations dollar-for-dollar, Madonna explained that she felt connected to Malawi’s children in a special way. “Right now, I am particularly concerned about Malawian girls whose lives are made even more difficult simply because of their gender,” she wrote.

“The girls of Malawi are bright and resourceful,” she continued. “They are eager to learn and grow. When I look at my girls and see them thriving, it is my greatest wish that the girls in Malawi will have the same chance for happiness.”
