Madonna Donates Funds To Three Detroit Charities
The philanthropist has taken time out from her busy schedule to do some charity work...
Madonna announced today that she would be donating money to three organizations in her hometown Detroit, Michigan.
The money will be split between charities who help disadvantaged children and homeless women in the city, and will fund a new boxing gym as well as art equipment for them.
Madonna said of her charitable donation: “I was deeply inspired by the efforts of so many people who I met who have dedicated themselves to helping the kids and adults in Detroit elevate themselves from the cycle of poverty. I have seen the results their commitment and hard work have already accomplished."
"From meeting the kids at Downtown Youth Boxing Gym who have a 100% high school graduation rate, to seeing how eager the students at the Detroit Achievement Academy are to learn about the arts, to understanding the value of giving homeless women the opportunity to become self-sufficient through The Empowerment Plan, it was obvious to me that I had to get involved and be part of the solution to help Detroit recover."
"A piece of my heart will always be in Detroit and I’m humbled to be able to give back to my community.”
