She's going to be brightening A LOT of hearts this holiday season…and all in honor of such an important person to her!
The world saw a devastated Rihanna back in June when she lost her beloved Gran Gran Dolly, and now, she's paid tribute to her memory by donating an incredible $1.75 million dollars to a hospital in her native Barbados…and all during her vacation home for Christmas!
The pop sensation was accompanied by her grandfather Lionel and mom Monica Fenty to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown yesterday afternoon, where her contribution paid for important pieces of equipment in the radiotherapy department, now re-named the Clara Braithwaite Centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine!
She explains in a statement:
"This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the QEH in its continued modernization program…I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done to save lives or at least extend them."
It certainly will, gurl!
And we cannot tell you what a wonderful thing your generosity is doing for so many!
We just KNOW your Gran Gran would be so proud of you.
WE certainly are!
May you and your loved ones have a truly wonderful holiday season!
