Madonna Gives Us Yet Another Reason To Bow Down To Her Madgesty By Helping Out Her Hometown! Find Out What The Material Girl Is Doing For Detroit HERE!
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!
Madonna must be so proud!
We're sure this mother was watching her daughter's high school ceremony this past Wednesday in New York, and had a BIG smile on her face as they called out the name — Lourdes Ciccone Leon!
The young lady was celebrating her completion of her final year at La Guardia Fiorella High School by attending an ah-mazing ceremony at Lincoln Center, and she looked a lot like her fashionable mother in a super pretty yellow sundress!
She shared a simple picture of a storefront with a big blue awning that had large white letters that read:
"The M Den"
Hmm… correct us if we're wrong… but that looks like the University of Michigan's official merchandise store!
Madonna captioned the photo:
What in the world?!
Madonna shared a pic over the weekend of the scene as kids took pictures before their prom, including one of Lourdes' group (above), with the caption:
Not your typical frou-frou prom dress!
Madonna's firstborn is all grown-up and attended her senior prom for La Guardia High School on Saturday!
The simple number featured beautiful lace trim along the neckline and hem, and fit Lola perfectly! With her red lipstick and dark hair, she looked like she'd just stepped out of a Dolce & Gabbana ad!
Her Madgesty also posted this second shot (below) of her daughter with some of her girlfriends, captioning it "pre prom turn up."

Lindsay Lohan has been overseas for many months, supposedly preparing for a potential appearance in Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet’s play Speed-the-Plow.
Set to hit the West End in November, Lindz would probably play the small role of Karen, an ambitious secretary to a Hollywood executive!
While at Jeremy Scott's fashion show this week, LiLo revealed it would be her first time doing live theater:
