Madonna donates to 3 organizations in Detroit


Inspired by her recent visit to Detroit, Madonna has decided to help the city.

She will donate money toward the construction of a new youth boxing gym, buying new equipment and art and music supplies to The Detroit Achievement Academy and donating funds to non-profit organization The Empowerment Plan that employs homeless women to sew coats and sleeping bags for homeless in Detroit and around the country.

In a statement released on Monday, Madonna said: “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.

madonna“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 percent 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.”
