Celeb Causes - Madonna's Charities

Madonna is one of the most powerful women in show biz. She's a singer, an icon, an actress, a businesswoman, a wife and a mother, but she still finds time for important issues. Since the mid 1980s Madonna has used her celebrity status to help fight the war against AIDS.

Madonna Gives to AIDS Charities

She has donated many dollars to various AIDS charities and jumped on the bandwagon at a time when many people shied away from such charities. For years, Madonna has been a huge supporter of amFAR, The American Foundation for AIDS Research. Although she's been involved with many AIDS related charities like The Pediatric Aids Foundation she's been the most involved with amFAR.

Madonna Gives Away Record Sales

Madonna donated a large portion of the proceeds from the sale of her number one song Vogue to several foundations including GMHC (Gay Men's Health Crisis.) Her experience with the disease is personal - having lost numerous friends to it. In 1992, for the Erotica album, she co-wrote and dedicated the song In This Life to the memory of all the friends she'd lost to AIDS. The same year she teamed up with other artists and donated the song Supernatural for the Red Hot and Dance compilation - an album specifically created to raise funds and awareness for AIDS.

Madonna Gives More Than Money

Madonna hasn't just contributed in dollars. From the time she adopted the cause in the '80s she has played a huge role in raising AIDS awareness and she's been a big advocate, promoting safe sex. The Material Girl has even been known to take time out during her concerts to talk to her audience about the importance of the fight against AIDS and has been seen sporting the symbolic red ribbon on many occasions.
