Madonna Is Raising Malawi

Madonna Is Raising Malawi

Madonna travels with her children Lourdes Leon, Mercy James and David Banda, to visit the Mphandu la Orphanage in the Namitete area outside Lilongwe, Malawi on Thursday (October 29).

The 51-year-old entertainer attended the ground breaking ceremony for the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.

Madonna recently blogged to urge people to join her cause. “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.

Raising Malawi, the organization I co-founded in 2006, is dedicated to ending the poverty and hardship endured by Malawi’s one million orphans. By donating to Raising Malawi, you can literally transform the future for an entire generation. To encourage your involvement, I’ve pledged $100,000 to match your contributions dollar-for-dollar.”

    Between her and angelina Jolie i dont know who has the biggest mother theresa syndrome. I guess she is doing something for a good cause so i am not going to get angry but it seems like the camera follows her everywhere.

    Matching up to $100,000. doesn’t seem like a lot for Madge.

    Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Simon Cowell and Jennifer Aniston. – I’ve noticed these guys at various times with really puffy faces / cheeks and after a while their skin subsides into a nice youthful look . I wonder what their getting injected with?? It seems to work ! !

    After she duped suburban white girls out of their allowances for the past 25+ years making crappy bubble gum pop music and trying to shock people for a buck, she’s now concerned about her own legacy as she looks towards her old age when she is no longer relevant. All about Madonna 24/7. She owns mega millions in real estate, art, and music publishing rights besides many other things. Fork it over yourself. The public will decide who and what they will donate to.
    It is people that give privately, or with little as fanfare possible,( no matter how much or how little that they have), that give selflessly and for the right reasons.

    I completely disagree! Whatever they are doing to their faces makes them look like they have all gone to the puffy factory!
    I noticed that Courtney Cox is starting to look the same way. She has definitely done something around her mouth, which has given her that infamous ‘duck lip’ appearance.

    What a great statement! I completely agree.

    Mike Says:

    @dee: She’s already given more than half of the $15 million, and has given another $15 million in the past three years. The $100,000 is just another pledge to raise more funds and, more importantly, raise awareness.

    My child goes to school with children who you could call the working poor, that arrive at school each day without breakfast and looking disheveled. Many have no dental care or health care and do very poorly in school. These kids right here in an American community will grow up soon and what will become of them? Innocent little faces, now .Their future is grim. I do all I can to donate to a local food shelter and help out at school and I would suggest people do the same for their own local community. The super wealthy in America are out of touch with the plight of the poor and unfortunate of America.

    Mike Says:

    @me me me: She didn’t dupe anyone. People purchased a product (a ticket for a show, a CD, and album) and got something out of it, that’s how things work. Nobody was forced to purchase anything. If you don’t like her, why do you keep commenting on her? She’s obviously relevant if you still feel the need to make a comment. Millions will disagree with you, which is why she had the most successful tour for a solo artist in history just this year.

    And she’s giving millions and has done so since she started her career, but that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t get the public involved in order to sustain the organization’s long-term success. Many, many celebrities are involved in causes and they give far less than she does and some are even wealthier than her, but are you asking them to give up all their wealth and give it to charity?

    its funny how people critise her, but nobody says anything when angelina jolie brings the cameras when shes doing “charity”

    **Jamie** Says:

    oh and on another note, Lourdes is gorgeous, and she is looking A LOT like Jessica Alba

    Mike Says:

    @Joey: It’s not like Malawi’s filled with celebrities eager to help out, so of course she’s going to be followed not only by the local press, but by the international press looking to make money by selling these pictures and tabloid stories.

    I am not a Madonna fan however I am happy for the children she is helping. Also, Madonna seems to do a good job raising her children. Keep on helping, Madonna, it does make a difference and thank you.

    get over your hatred or obsession w/ angelina and get on with your bitter life. i don’t care if the camera follow angelina or madonna or anyone as long as they help or bring awareness to the cause. while all you care is about your wonderful opinion and bitterness, atleast other real human being see the miserable lives of others and prompted to give what they can or if not then feel atleast a sense of sympathy. in the real world , there are good and evil people, some may extend their hand, others just don’t care and a few are just good in spewing bitterness and critcize the ones who attempt to help others ,in a way that make themselve feel better and entitled in their own hypocricy. i applaud people who live a good mark in this world and it’s all up to God to deal with those who are just spewing jealousy and bitterness as their only claim to achievements.
