The star hopes to raise $60,000 before her birthday on August 17.
“I have an unwavering commitment to providing vulnerable children with a loving home,” said Madonna. “For my birthday, I can think of no better gift than connecting my global family with this beautiful country and the children who need our help most. Every dollar raised will go directly to meals, schools, uniforms and healthcare. I want to come together with my friends, fans and supporters to change the lives of Malawian children and let them know they are nurtured, protected and loved. Through their generous commitment to this organization, Ripple will match each dollar donated to this campaign.”
The fundraiser will run from July 30 through August 31 and utilizes Facebook’s charitable giving tools, which charge no processing fees, meaning 100% of every contribution goes directly to Raising Malawi’s work at Home of Hope orphanage, located in a rural, high-need area of Malawi.
