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.”

    Excuse me, but she pledged only $100,000???????? The woman earns millions and that is all she can donate? Sandra Bullock donated a million to the Katrina victims and she doesn’t come close to what this slag makes. Didn’t like her before sure don’t like now!

    @Paulie: no, but she has 100 + million in her bank right now. why is she asking us for cash? she should drop a couple million and be done with it. Roger friedman recently wrote a piece on her on showbiz 411 and she made 100 million and only gave 500 thousand to her Malawi foundation. One person doesn’t need 100 million dollars.

    I thought she was the one having the school build hence the reason she could steal away 2 children. So I’m guessing now that she has them she want’s her fans to give money, come on are we really that stupid. Sorry, don’t answer that, lol.

    Why is she asking us poor peons to donate our hard-earned money to her cause, when all she needs to do is sell a couple of her castles, private jets, etc., etc., and she can probably fund whatever she needs to in Malawi.

    Maddyct Says:

    @Me! cuz she’s already giving millions and that it could go faster if we helped!
    moron

    no Says:

    good cause, wrong person. she’s trying to win a noble prize or something. i would donate to a malawi charity, just not her kahballa runned charity organization.

    Madonna is one of the most self centered celebs their is. She doesn’t have a nice bone in her body, so the fact that she is trying to pass herself off as a humanitarian is laughable.

    flo Says:

    Once again I will not give a penny of my hard earned money to build a shrine to Madonna. If she were really concerned for the women of Malawi she could usehalf of the money she made on her last tour to educate the masses in humble schoolsm not a chosen few.who will live in her shrine.

    i dont think so ******. in fact i would rather give my $ right here to help children who are tortured, abused and raped by their retarded parents so these kids can have a chance.

    Jorden Says:

    No, she will donate 100,000 for each dollar that WE donate, if I read that right anyway. She could go broke real fast if people seriously started donating. XD

    Madonna has an art collection worth several hundred million dollars. Sell a painting or two Madonna and donated a few mill, why don’t ya.

    cindy Says:

    I believe what she did was pledge up to $100,000 matching other donations dollar for dollar. Meaning, if the donations come in to the tune of $75,000, she’ll donate another $75,000 out of the $100,000 she’s made available. If other donations total $100,001, she’s capped her matching donations at $100,000. Smart move; have millions, pledge a little and then expect those with less to provide the most. Typical liberal thinking… someone else SHOULD take care of what you deem important.

    Enough of Madonna and her calling attention to herself tactics.

    bill Says:

    i agree with everybody else on here…it shows a STUNNING lack of shame, to have over 400 million in the bank, and to ask the rest of the world, who is struggling during these tough economic times, for donations, ok if she gave 10 or 20 million herself, and then asked the rest of the world to contribute, i could understand, but this woman, at the end of 2008 was shown, via her tax records, to not have given anything to raising malawi, but to spirituality for kids, and basically other offshoots of the kabbalah centre, even though via gucci 3.7 million was raised for raising malawi.

    Thank you for clearing that up Cindy. I knew after I commented, it couldn’t possibly be right.
