Madonna Statement Following Earthquake In Haiti

My prayers are with the people of Haiti. I can’t imagine the terrible pain and suffering they are experiencing. Sadly the depths of the tragedy are just becoming known and the need for our support grows more urgent with every passing moment.
I have given a donation of $250,000 to assist Haiti’s earthquake victims through Partner’s in Health (www.pih.org) one of Haiti’s leading health care providers. I urge all of my friends and fans around the world to join me collectively to match my contribution or give in any way you can. We must act now.

Thank you for your support.
Madonna

Thank you Moe...thank you all. There are such amazing people in here, so kind and sensible...I think I'm just saying what I believe in: we all need love, serenity, peace and more faith and these humanitarian acts are proves of it. Not only who receive charity feel relieved. At the other side make an offer of help seems like obtain something back; it makes each one more tolerant toward the 'other' (neighbour). I've tried to express my thoughts hope not in vain!!!^_^good night

Moe

Hang in there MLVC_Lola, we are thinking of you, praying for healing and donating deep to help!

Hi...I'm from Abruzzo, Italy. I live in Avezzano, near l'Aquila, and I know how anything donation can help in these cases! Personally and fortunately I didn't lose important on the 6April earthquake, but we all were so scared and so troubled from the ground incessant shaking(sorry, I can't express myself completely I don't speak english, hope you'll understand me any way). I just want to say that M is a really generous person who is always present at these specific moments and her actions make people to think. That is the meaning of her acts: people, and at first her fans (because of them/our nearness), sensibilization. Thanks!

You have to stop and wonder the ignorance and entitlement one has to go on a site and go out of their way to bash someone who has given to a charity. What type of self-rightous idiot does that? Maybe we can help you out with a little info. First off, every celebrity announces the amount of their donation, it's what they do. Most likely because people will pry until they know, so why not just out with it. Secondly, do you really know how involved Madonna is with PIH? I didn't until I did a little research on the organization once she made her announcement. Try it. I have to wonder about all these self righteous jerks that feel this is a time to bring ANY sort of negativity into this. I educated myself, donated and went on to make a donation page to forward to all my friends who are also giving and forwarding to their friends. That was the impact she gave, and I'm sure many others doing so too. What have you done? And I'm not asking because I want to know, frankly I don't. But I ask so you may try to look inside yourself and fix this twisted, negative energy your giving off. Put you big fat mouth where your money is and from now on, worry about yourself and your own actions. Honestly, nobody else wants to hear it.

david davies... Maybe if your lack of patience didn't match your lack of fiscal understanding, you might have kept an open mind to how this fansite might be run (by one person, after they've earned a living with another job during the day), then you could've waited more than a few hours for your first comment to be posted, before posting your second. Thankfully both of your comments have been posted, nicely exposing your haste for us to gloat at.
In relation to you questioning Madonna's generosity, if Madonna keeps donating sums of money like that as often as she does, she'll have given a very large portion of her wealth back to society by the time of her death. And who's to say that the amounts and their regularity won't increase over time? She may end up penniless before she dies, if she doesn't time it right! And how do you know what her wealth amounts to currently? Are you her accountant? I think you'll need more than the pages of the press on which to draw knowledge of her financial position.
I would like to add that there are also many other rich people in the world who are deciding to take a very proactive attitude to philanthropy. There are also many who will not be. I sure hope you are well versed with who those people are, in contrast. If not, I suggest you find out, to help balance your opinion... by becoming their accountant!

david davies

what a perthetic site!!!! Doesn't even allow you to exspress your feeling on stories... I love madonna but really thought giving $250.000 was really tight of her when she has a wealth of around 4 hundred million!!! But i suspect you wont put this comment up as it puts the "queen" down!!!!

david davies

Not being funny but madonna could have given much moor than $250.000!! Not as though she can't afford it!!!

daniel

haiti needs us, let's help!

Alex

Of course I have heard Madonna's appeal and I have donated for haiti.
