Rihanna Launches "The Dollar Campaign" For Global Education
Rihanna is back at it again with her amazing skills for giving back. Its reported that the singer has launched her "The Dollar Campaign" under her Clara Lionel Foundation in an effort to raise funds for global education. The money that she raises through the campaign will be used to help support education in Malawi.
On the Clara Lionel Foundation website, they say that every dollar donated his her "$1 Campaign" will give each donor the opportunity to win a trip to New York City to attend her upcoming Diamond Ball on September 14th.
The campaign will last until September 5th with the winner being chose on September 7th. The Diamond Ball is bound to be huge. Rihanna has gotten Dave Chappelle as the host as well as performances from Kendrick Lamar and Calvin Harris. For a dollar donation, you'll not only be helping kids in need but also have the chance to see Dave Chappelle, Rihanna and Kendrick in the same function.
The website also details what the contribution one makes will ultimately do. On her website, it says that every dollar donated could provide one brick to help build a school in Malawi while if you donate $5, it'll provide five bricks. A $10 dollar donation can possibly provide 10 books to students and $15 could help provide a child with essential school supplies.
During her acceptance speech for the Humanitarian of the Year accolade at Harvard University, Rihanna called her supporters to assist with giving back. “I want to challenge each of you to make a commitment to help one person, one organization, one situation that touches your heart,” she said. “My grandmother always used to say, ‘If you have a dollar, there’s plenty to share.'”
