| Filed under: MadonnaInspiration

wenn54070402.jpg

In the wake of Haiti's devastating earthquake, Madonna has donated considerable funds to help end the unfathomable suffering.

In a statement sent to PerezHilton.com, the singer says:

“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, 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”

We're sure it will be an enormous help to the people of Port-au-Prince!

We love our Madge!

  10. 10

    You're kidding, right, Perez?! This thing is an "inspiration" because she gives a MEASELY $250K?!?!?!? That's chump change for her! WHAT A JOKE!



  11. 11

    UM, WHERE IS JAY Z AND BEYONCE??????????????????????????????



  12. 12

    HEY PEREZ: COULD YOU PLEASE CAUSE AVATAR'S TO TAKE EFFECT WHEN WE CHANGE THEM?



  13. 13

    In a statment sent to perezhilton? my ass you can google this and you will know she didnt send this statement to you .Shuttup!
    Me and my sister already donated to stillerstrong (we saw it on conan)
    money goes straight to helping Haiti! .What did you do Perez? oh Nothing im sure! you don't care about noone but yourself you pigshit!



  14. 14

    Well she'd give more but the plastic surgery bills left her short this month.



  15. 15

    It won't be long that she'll be in Haiti adopting. Watch.



  16. 16

    WTF U MEAN 2ND MOST GENEROUS?!?!? Just because she didnt give as much as Brad and Ang dosnt mean anything!! This is not a contest its about fucking helping these ppl!!



  17. 17

    Re: JigSaw – LOL



  18. 18

    i think she could SPRING FOR SOME MORE 250k TIP MONEY FOR HER!!



  19. 19

    you fucked up the link to Partners in Health, moron.



  20. 20

    Pathetic! a woman with her income, she should have donated much more! Shame on her!



  21. 21

    to a bitch like this $250K is the equivalent of what some people spend on starbucks in the morning. it's not really that generous at all. she's just looking for good publicity.



  22. 22

    I am glad to see people, who can more than afford it, donating in large amounts. What I don't understand is, why do they publicize the amount they donate? Whether you contribute $5 or $5 million, it doesn't matter, as long as people are giving. It's not a competition to see who has the bigger bank account, so why publicize it?



  23. 23

    My house is worth $250,000! Vadge, you gotta be kidding!!!!



  24. 24

    Just $250,000??? The bitch is loaded!!! She could at least donate $1 mil… sad… If I had her money I'd donate much much much more…



  25. 25

    She could afford to donate a lot more than that. Brad and Angie donated $1M right away.. I mean it's very generous but she's no stranger to the donation game and she knows she could afford 10x that 50 times a year and still be stinking rich.



  26. 26

    i think all celebrities should donate to this disaster.



  27. 27

    How many times are you gonna change Madonna's pic in this posting?! What up?



  28. 28

    Her face looks like it's melting, melting, melting in the corset outfit.



  29. 29

    When you have that kind of $$, gotta do it!
    good for her. :)



  30. 30

    Cheap ass cow $250K is petty cash for her.
    .
    And she is by far not the second most generous, dumbass Mario! Do your research…
    .

    31

    yeah very generous of her, when the JoliePitts earn less than her donated more.



  32. 32

    I think it is pathetic. She has millions and millions and millions. These people are dying on the streets.

    She should give more. Oprah should donate no less than 10 million. Leno needs to get off his wallet. I am sick to death of celebrities urging everyone to donate when all they give is pocket change.



  33. 33

    That's it??? That's like me giving 10 cents. Insulting.
    Dig deep celebs, you have more money than you will ever be able to use in your lifetime.



  34. 34

    I am sure there was way more of a donation that was made annonimosly. Madonna is VERY generous!



  35. 35

    Beyonce and JayZ, you guys made more than 150 millions last year, shouldn't you help your brothers and sisters in Haiti?



  36. 36

    Good on her!



  37. 37

    She's horrible. Can't stand her.



  38. 38

    I agree. Madonna donating $250k is equivalent to the $100 I was able to donate. Something is better than nothing. However, she has cars that are worth over a mill and she never drives.



  39. 39

    good for her!! other super rich celebs take note!



  40. 40

    It shouldnt matter how much she donated. The point is that she donated her money to assist the people of Haiti.

  41. Laury says – reply to this


    41

    What? Just 250K??? St. Angie and her bitch donated 1 million! And I'm pretty sure Madge is worth more than Brad and Angie combined! And you call that generous????

    Just kidding people. Of course it's generous. And Port-au-Prince needs all the money they can get right now.



  42. 42

    Re: madonnfan4eva – Did she send you some money? If she didn't then she's not that generous.



  43. 43

    Understanding that any donations are truly needed and appreciated by the Haitian people, I just don't get it when someone like Madonna donated 250,000 when she made 110 million between june 08-june 09. It is funny how the super wealthy have “short arms” and “deep pockets” Oh that right, she will donate more when she wants a new child from there!

    Where's Oprah in the donations after making 275 mil last year, Beyonce at 87 mil, the list goes on & on. 1% donations from any of them on the Forbes top 100 would be enough to rebuild a country!



  44. 44

    What a joke. Madonna spent that on Jesus's english lessons alone.



  45. 45

    Every penny can help. Now if another celeb would donate another 250,000.00.
    Congrats Madonna! Oh, and congrats to all the people that gave. Yes, I gave too. Well everyone can't do a Madonna or Brad and Angie. But, we do give and as long as it's from the heart and do some good for a child or family that's all we need to think about. God bless Haiti! God bless America and god bless anyone who have helped in this crisis.
    xoxo,
    Sheba



  46. 46

    Ooooooh, REALLY!?
    Brad and Angelina donated a MILLION!
    I guess since Madge didn't get a kid from there……..



  47. 47

    Good for her. We should all donate to this terrible tragedy.



  48. 48

    -
    way to jump on the bandwagon, old lady
    -



  49. 49

    Ok, I'm not the biggest fan of Madonna, but people, cut her some slack. She's definitely a humanitarian. It's not like this is the first time she's ever donated money. I imagine she donates a LARGE portion of money to charitable organizations every single month. The woman is constantly photographed in third world countries, whether she's adopting a child or aiding one foundation or another. Believe me, she's doing her part. 250K is going to come in mighty handy there right now.



  50. 50

    she's worth $600 million and that's all she could scoop out from between her couch cushions? cheap bitch.

    and that's how the rich stay rich.

  51. Heh says – reply to this


    51

    Cheap bitch !!!!!! How could she announce that amount to the public like its something?? bitch has hundreds of millions of dollars un fucking real



  52. 52

    she should donate more!!!!!



  53. 53

    Re: YruLame – LOLs Sorry, I cracked up reading your post!

    Madonna, I hate you! Cheap bitch!!! :(



  54. 54

    Seriously? 250K…figures…cheap azz!



  55. 55

    At least she gave something to the cause.
    I wonder how many celebrities quietly gave money without alerting the media!



  56. 56

    Re: Zombie Hitler – LoL. Yes, lets all respect her privacy when she shoves these comments down our throats. yuck!



  57. 57

    Um… she's worth like £300million and she gives $250,000?



  58. 58

    Her face looks like an earthquake hit it.



  59. 59

    QUEEN.



  60. 60

    Perez! it's PARTNERS in Health. pih.org

    headed up by dr. paul farmer. It's very easy to donate money or supplies to…



  61. 61

    Oooo 250K - she only just spent 50 MILLION dollars on a house in 09' - fuck you madonna - you could have had some class and not announced it YOURSELF but per-usual it's ALL ABOUT YOU and your sanctimonious crap about giving to other countries - what the fuck have you done lately for the U.S.!

  62. kacky says – reply to this


    62

    It isn't that much for her, and what an ass to send out a press release.



  63. 63

    Cheap bitch,she just got herself another tax right off at that level.Shes got loads of cash



  64. 64

    And she has to tell us why? She just cant keep he "big" donation to herself, huh?

  65. memei says – reply to this


    65

    is that all stingy



  66. 66

    That's it….$250,000 what a tight wad!



  67. 67

    This a great but with Madonna's wealth ….250k really… thats it? Embarrassing.

    Someone needs to read Ted Turner's book.

    What does she do hording all that wealth?



  68. 68

    "in a statement to PerezHilton"??
    she made this statement to the media asswipe, not exclusively to you. Ego-check please.



  69. 69

    That's all? Penny pinching old hag.



  70. 70

    thats nice but what a cheap bitch, she has so much more money than brangelina and couldnt give more. ugh.



  71. 71

    cheap!



  72. 72

    Although Im glad she is helping out, with the money she has, she could have donated 2 mill, Thanks Marg



  73. 73

    WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH YOU LOT?!
    SHE HAVE A QUARTER OF A MILLION?! HOW MUCH DID YOU GIVE? HUH? NOTHING!
    IT'S NOT A CONTEST BETWEEN THE CELEBRITIES ABOUT WHO DONATES THE MOST!
    MADONNA MAY HAVE ALOT OF MONEY BUT IF SHE DONATED MILLIONS FOR EVERY DISASTER THAT HAPPEND SHE WOULDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY LEFT!
    SHE DONATES APPROXIMATELY THE SAME FOR EVERY MAJOR DISASTER THAT HAPPENS. AND SHE WORKS DAMN HARD FOR MALAWI TOO!
    I'D LIKE TO SEE YOU IDIOTS COMPLAINING DONATING OR DOING ANY GOOD FOR THE WORLD.

  74. jemms says – reply to this


    74

    she has millions and she only donates 250??? wtf??



  75. 75

    It's nice that she donated something, but that really isn't a huge amount of money compared to how much she is worth.



  76. 76

    re: Goyabean It's pretty easy to sit back and be jealous of those that have made something of themselves. Madonna gives so much to so many. Charities upon charites. And does not ask to be acknowledged for it. That letter was a great way for her to urge those that have not given any to do so if they can. One shouldn't knock another for there large heart and unselfish giving. No matter the denomination. Kindness just hurts those that are jadeed and calous. Why would I need her to give to me? I am content with my life. I have it great here in the US. Count your blessings ALL!



  77. 77

    She is a filthy whore !!!



  78. 78

    thats her shoe money for the week ! With all the gazzillons that she
    has $2500000 aint nothin' - so sad and SO SELFISH !!!!! Bet she's "donated"
    much more to her kabahla sham/habit…



  79. 79

    That hurt her wallet like it hurts mind if I give a $1 to the bell ringer at WalMart at Christmas time.



  80. 80

    $250k?
    Guess she didnt wanna adopt any kid from Haiti.



  81. 81

    CHEAP ASS BITCH!!! OH YEAH I MEANT WHORE



  82. 82

    it's funny how celebs are the first to say how much they have donated. a donation should be from the heart with no strings attached and without seeking to be written about. When your PR puts a press release for the amount you have donated that is called a publicity stunt and a tacky one at that, specially when she is worth so much and only gives that amount…



  83. 83

    She'll do ANYTHING to try and stay relevent … Someone please send her the memo that she's not, and hasn't been in a long long time… Retire !!!! With what little dignity you have left..



  84. 84

    can´t stop loving her!!!



  85. 85

    how can she donate 250k when Brangelina donates a million??! Madonna must be worth 10times more $$ than brangelina.



  86. 86

    ha! She's so proud of her $250,000! I wouldn't had announced it to world if I was her.



  87. 87

    Re: Gary78 – who gives a damn fuck if shes trying to be relevant and wanting publicity at least shes doing something you bitter bitch fuck off im not fan of madonna but who gives a shit what her reasons are for helping people at least shes doing it you dumb fuck



  88. 88

    you people are so funny, is not the fact that she has more money but that she is doing something at least, good for her, but this sad world seems to criticize and bash the good things around, always looking at the bad side of things how sad!



  89. 89

    She really shouldnt have said how much she donated



  90. 90

    Thats all?? Come on, she could probably donate 20 mil or more and be okay..money is money! These celebs are rich and they donate pitiful amounts of money. If you have 100 mil..whats 20 mil?? Celebrities could really help them a whole hell of a lot! The world is struggling, but the celebs are spending thousands of dollars on a purse, or a pair of jeans! Get a grip! You cant take it with you when you die! If you really want to be a humanitarian, actually help them…Brad and angelina donated 1 million, who cares?? They could have donated much more!



  91. 91

    Gisele Bundchen donated 1.5 million to the Red Cross. I dont think she sent out a press release about it. Same with Braigelina.

    Nothing is wrong with donating $250K, but then she releases a statment to announce it. Such a f-ing bitch this girl is. Always about her.



  92. 92

    What A Cheapskate! The producers of the Golden Globes just gave a $100,000! Are some of you guys just sick fanboyz who can't dare say a negative thing about Madonna? She is worth 3 or 4 Hundred Million, that's $400 Million! When are some of these "celebrities" going to stop their greediness? How many MILLIONS do you need to be "Happy"? And frankly after I spent $300 a ticket to see her last show, she's the last one I need to be "telling" me where to donate!



  93. 93

    CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP………considering the money she makes!!



  94. 94

    Cripes, you think she could've given more. I'm sure everyone is grateful for any amount, but she is worth zillions of dollars!!



  95. 95

    Re: SashaMadonna
    "I'D LIKE TO SEE YOU IDIOTS COMPLAINING DONATING OR DOING ANY GOOD FOR THE WORLD."
    Well, since you're the biggest idiot AND the biggest complainer on here right now, let's start with you… What are you doing? Yeah…thought so.



  96. 96

    If I were her, I wouldn't be flaunting how stingy I am. That sum is ridiculous considering how much money she has.



  97. 97

    I wish she would become a Muslim, that way she would have to cover up her entire old ugly body, especially that HOdeous fucking face !! Get her a Burka asap !!!



  98. 98

    What is important is that she has done something, I mean in 2009 she was the number 2 humanitarian(based on what she had given) in the entertainment business. She gives a lot of money to a lot of different causes. She told the press because she wanted to encourage a lot more people. The people who are criticizing are pathetic individuals who haven't done anything for anyone besides spending all their time hating, talking shit on a gossip site.



  99. 99

    wow - one of the richest people in the world and just 250k - what is it with these tight wads?



  100. 100

    Well, she donated…at least she's doing something good to help publicize this catastrophe. Why do celebs need to say how much they donated?
