Madonna raises money for Malawi.

On Wednesday Feb 6th,The UN was the venue for Madonna's charity event titled "A night to raise Malawi and UNICEF".The singer was joined at the event by stars such as Tom Cruise,Katie Holmes,Gwen Stefani,Gywneth Paltrow and ofcourse,Africa's very own Calvin Klein model Djimon Hounsou and his girlfriend,Kimora Lee Simmons.

3.7 Million dollars was raised but the event was surrounded by controversy and apparently was seen as a way to raise money only for her foundation "Raising Malawi" and to advertise Gucci who was the sponsor.All I can say is that I hope the money gets where it's needed.Madonna's adopted son is from Malawi.
