Bruno Mars Donates $ 1 million To the Flint Water Crisis Victims
The announcement came during his sold-out 24K Magic World Tour.
Auburn Hills, MI – R&B superstar Bruno Mars not to lose sight of the big picture in place of their recent successes.
During the last night of the leg of his 24K Magic World Tour in Auburn Hills, Michigan, shocked the sold-out Palace of Auburn Hills public by revealing that he was donating a million dollars to Flint Water Crisis victims.
Mars, 31 years old, joins other artists such as Big Sean, Pusha T, The Game, DJ Mustard and, of course, Eminem in ensuring that the people of Flint have returned to an acceptable quality of life.
"I am very grateful to the Michigan audience to join me in supporting this cause," Mars said in a statement. "The challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it is important that we not forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster. As people, especially Americans, we need to be together to make sure that something like this never happens on any community ever again."
With the help of Live Nation, Bruno was able to assign the gains of the Detroit show to The Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
According to the organization's mission statement, The Community Foundation of Greater Flint "in the service of the common good in Genesee County – building a strong community by engaging people in philanthropy and developing the community's permanent endowment – now and for generations to come."
