040107_scoop_madonna_vmed1pwidec.jpgFiguring a call to action letter wasn’t going to cut it, Madonna has teamed up with fashion powerhouse Gucci to raise money for orphans in Malawi, Africa.

According to reports there’s going to be a fund-raising dinner, musical performance by Madge, and a rockin’ party February 6th, 2008 to mark the opening of Gucci’s new behemoth store on New York’s Fifth Avenue. From the article,

“Madonna said the event will benefit UNICEF and the charity she co-founded in 2006, Raising Malawi, which focuses on trying to end the poverty and hardship suffered by Malawi’s one million orphans, many of whose parents died of AIDS. ‘I am grateful that Gucci is joining forces with me to bring attention to a country with millions of children in desperate need of our help,’ Madonna said in a statement. ‘Raising Malawi has already done tremendous work in helping these children. But we have much more to do and this event will surely bring us closer to our goal.'”

Joining Madonna for the New York event (which is expected to rake in about $2 million) will be Adrien Brody, Arpad Busson, Salma Hayek, Francois-Henri Pinault, Tea Leoni, Lucy Liu, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher and Gwyneth Paltrow.
