Lady Madonna, we bow down to you!

Queen Madge announced today that she'll be adding to some recent efforts to revitalize her hometown of Detroit by contributing to three great organizations!

She'll be giving much needed funding for a new facility for the Downtown Youth Boxing Gym, which provides 65 kids in Detroit's Eastside neighborhood free boxing and educational mentoring after they get done with school!

On top of that, she'll be giving new equipment, art, and music supplies to the Detroit Achievement Academy, which is a free public charter school that may be situated in the poorest zip code of Michigan, but academically it has the highest performing kids in the city.

Finally, Madonna will be assisting the Empowerment Plan, which is a nonprofit that hires homeless women to sew garments that are then distributed to the homeless within Detroit and throughout the country!

Wow, this is philanthropy at its finest!

Here's what Madonna had to say about her hometown city:

“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.”

Wow, it's like our heart was touched…for the very first time! SRSLY! Madonna can do no wrong!

    Re: H – puhlleeze… a third school is opening up in Malawi and I'm most certain there are no idiots in Detroit that will embezzle charity funds like that Banda bitch and her sister in fucccking Malawi, way too much corruption in that part of the world that so desperately need help. Sit your crusty old ass down and STFU if you're not doing shit to help anyone. DOUCHEE!

    She's from detroit? That totally explains her unnattractive wiggerness. Detroit is the number one toxin on earth turning europeans into backwards ghetto billies. Detroit IS the wigger nest. The probablem with detroit is that its too violent. If you live in detroit, you are literally sharing space with THE most violent group of males in the modern non 3rd world. So what does she want to do? Get violent males BOXING equipment? "empowerment" We gave black men the most incredible city in america. That town is BLACK. And what did they do? Ran it to the ground with violence and crime and poor managment. But she thinks giving them a GYM.. will help? Thats not philanthropy. She has probably spent more money on her face. If detroit was 84% asian, it would be the greatest city on the west.

    Re: IQ is for the Tarded – "Sit your crusty old ass down". Thats no way to talk about madonna. People have to learn to help themselves. Charity is a temporary bandaid. My mom dedicated 20 years of her life (part time a few weeks a year) helping a certain east african country because she thought "god made me upperclass for a reason. To help people". And guess what? All the problems she thought she was "curing" still exist there. All she did was waste my dads money. I told her "Mom, dad is from the nordic world. If you want to help someone, buy farming equipment for an icelandic farmer. Help people who arent violent. If god existed.. thats what he'd do".
