The singer from Barbados has used her personal Twitter profile for a good cause. Rihanna (30) has written Mark Rutte and the holder of Aid to the development of Holland, Sigrid Kaag, to ask them 100 million dollars and to invest in the education of children with little economic means.
"I know that since last February the Netherlands wanted to show their support for education on a global scale, so I would like to do it now, would they donate 100 million dollars to Worldwide partnership for education, organized during the festival World citizen, September 29th? Thanks! ", Has the artist written as an ambassador of the organization, aimed at education of minors, in a tweet that is already more than 20.500 sympathies.
The answer was not long in coming. The Dutch minister Kaag has responded via the same social network: "Hello Rihanna, what you say is music to the ears, the Netherlands supports education and will publish it in New York next month." Also take a look at our new policy on the importance of education. "
The festival in particular is intended to raise funds for GP for education, founded in 2002, and whose chairman of the Board of Directors is Julia Gillard, former Prime Minister of Australia. However, it is not the first time that Rihanna is involved in helping those who need it the most.
In 2012 he founded the foundation Clara Lionel in memory of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite, who focused on giving a better quality of life in communities around the world in the areas of health, education, art and culture. In addition, the singer made several donations in a personal capacity, for example $ 100,000 at the food bank that was opened after Hurricane Sandy in 2012, in Haiti.
