Madonna Raises Millions at Haiti Fundraiser
Music icon Madonna came together with ex-husband Sean Penn Saturday to help bring in $6 million at a fundraiser for Haiti, which suffered a devastating earthquake in 2010. The event, held at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, California and organised by the J/P Haitian Relief Organisation (J/P HRO), was hosted by the pop icon’s former husband, Hollywood actor Sean Penn.
The pair, which married in 1985, but split four years later, posed for photographs together with Madonna’s children Mercy James and David Banda, and even snapped a ‘selfie’ that the singer later posted on Instagram, with the caption, “Tonight was Fire! Thanks to Sean and everyone at J/P HRO!!!!! We raised 6 mullion [sic] dollars for Haiti #rebelhearts”.
