Madonna might be a pretty strict mom at home, but this Christmas she showed she definitely has a soft side! Madonna sent toys, clothes and sweets to Malawi this Christmas season to be distributed to six orphanages. Malawi is the birth country of Madonna’s adopted daughter, Mercy. UsMagazine also reports that the singer included a handwritten note in with one of the boxes that read;
“To my Malawi children on Christmas and Boxing Day. I wish I was with you. See you soon, M.”
How nice! In addition to the new clothes that Madonna sent over she also sent items that her 4 children, Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy have outgrown. There were other notes included that were signed by Madonna, Lourdes and Rocco that read;
“Mercy, David, Rocco, Lourdes and I send you a blessed Christmas to all of you!”
I love that Madonna is honoring the birthplace of her daughter and giving back! In addition to the items that she sent, she also threw a party for over 3500 people! It’s nice that she was able to make that many children have a Merry Christmas!
