There’s a lot to do in NYC. You can visit the Statue of Liberty, take in a broadway show, or you could spend an evening shaking your booty for charity. Rihanna chose the latter and spent Wedensday evening performing at the Highline Ballroom to benefit both her charity Believe and DKMS.
Believe is a a public charity organization dedicated to assisting terminally ill children worldwide. Its mission is to assist and inspire children who suffer from life-threatening diseases including cancer, leukemia and AIDS. Therefore it’s super appropriate that she’s teamed up with DKNS — the largest non-profit marrow donor center in the world.
Rihanna told the press “When I was young and I would watch television and I would see all the children suffering, I always said when I grow up I want to help.”
And help you have! Thanks Rihanna for keeping your eye on the prize. Oh and congrats on your recent appointment as Ambassador of Culture and Youth in Barbados! You deserve it chica!
