Madonna has donated a substantial sum to the relief effort in Italy where an earthquake struck on Monday.
It’s reported that the singer- real name Madonna Louise Ciccone – has given around $500,000 after the mayor of Pacento appealed for her help.
Madge’s grandparents were originally from the town in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Over 200 people were killed by the earthquake which measured 6.3 on the Richter scale.
She told People Magazine: "I am happy to lend a helping hand to the town than my ancestors are from.”
In other Madonna news she was reportedly caught crying in public whilst having dinner with her mate Stella McCartney.
The 4 minutes star was last week denied permission to adopt baby Mercy James from Malawi.
