Music star Rihanna has donated $ 15 million to organizations fighting climate change. She did it through her Clara Lionel Foundation by paying money to 18 organizations that fight climate change.
The singer, born in Barbados, is known for her philanthropic work, so in 2017 she received the “Humanitarian of the Year” award from Harvard. In her welcome speech, she spoke about the reasons for donating for education and other endeavors.
When I was five or six, I remember watching TV and seeing commercials of children suffering in other parts of the world. At one point in the ad it was said that with a 25 cent donation you can save a child’s life, and I thought, “I wonder how much 25 cents I can save to save all the children in Africa,” she wondered then, adding:
“I told myself that when I grow up when I get rich, I will save children all over the world.”
In 2012, Rihanna started the Clara Lionel Foundation, named after her grandparents. In addition to funding climate change projects, the foundation also supported those affected by natural disasters.
