Well, Madge has turned another year older – she’s now 58! How can this be? I’m still 39! Anyway, for her birthday (8/16), Madonna has partnered with online giving platform Omaze to raise funds to build a pediatric surgery unit and ICU in Malawi. According to the Omaze website….”Our model democratizes traditional auction-giving by offering everyone the chance to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience for as little as $10. Through the Omaze platform, people from more than 170 countries have donated to over 150 charities, driving new levels of awareness and raising more money for charities.”
Founded by Madonna in 2006, Raising Malawi addresses the poverty and hardship endured by Malawi’s orphans and vulnerable children. Raising Malawi partners with local organizations to provide Malawian children and their caregivers with critical resources including medical care and education. http://www.raisingmalawi.org
