Madonna is joining forces with Gucci to raise funds for orphans in Malawi, Africa.


A famous singer, many even consider her as diva, Madonna is no stranger to wearing top range designer clothes. And now the pop star is willing to lend her celebrity status by joining forces with high profile luxury goods maker Gucci in an attempt to raise funds for orphans in Malawi, Africa.

Madonna, who once created sensation with her adopting a Malawian boy David Banda, and Gucci are said to host a fundraising event slated to be held on February 6th next year. The fundraising event, comprised of dinner, musical performance and a party, will as well mark the opening of Gucci's largest store in the world, on New York's Fifth Avenue.

All proceeds will benefit UNICEF and the Raising Malawi charity Madonna co-founded in 2006 which aim is to end the poverty and hardship suffered by Malawi's one million orphans, many of whose parents died of AIDS.

"I am grateful that Gucci is joining forces with me to bring attention to a country with millions of children in desperate need of our help," Madonna commented on their joining forces. "Raising Malawi has already done tremendous work in helping these children. But we have much more to do and this event will surely bring us closer to our goal."

Madonna has been accused by some human rights groups to have made use her fame to cut short the legal procedure to obtain the permanent adoption of son David Banda. She obviously denied the claim though.
