Shakira Donates $40 Million

Shakira has announced that she will donate $40 million from the Latin American Solidarity Foundation, an organization she co-founded with Gabriel Garcia Marquez, to help people in disaster struck areas. WOW! That is a lot of moolah.  The money will be used to aid Peruvian earthquake victims, as well as hurricane suffering in Nicaragua.  Shakira decision came after visiting these sites in person. She told press, “I’ve seen first-hand many of the challenges facing Latin America. These are challenging problems that no one person can address, but working together everyone can help make a difference.” What a woman!
