Madonna is serious about making sure girls around the world get educated!
Her Madgesty auctioned off one of her prized paintings at Sotheby's on Tuesday, and gave every penny to charity! And that was A LOT of pennies!
The painting- French artist Fernand Leger's Trois Femmes a la Table Rouge- sold for a whopping $7.16 MILLION! Sacre bleu! Madonna said:
"I want to trade something valuable for something invaluable - Educating Girls!"
Way to go, gurl! Maybe just a few of the thousand girls getting educated will end up as painters making MORE good art for the world!
You can see the multi-million dollar painting that was Madge's for yourself …AFTER THE JUMP!

You go girl!
While Madonna has been busy attending the schools she helped build in Malawi, she now wants to help girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan get an education, and she's doing it by auctioning off her Fernand Leger Trois femmes à la table rouge painting in order to raise $$$ for the Ray of Light Foundation.
Her Majesty bought Leger's painting back in 1990 at Sotheby's, and considering that it's worth a cool $5-$7 million now, she felt that handing it off to the Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale would be AH-MAYZING because she can help girls get their learn on.
