Madonna Plans to Open Orphanage in Malawi

E! Online reports that do-gooder singer Madonna has revealed her plans to open an orphanage in Malawi! Madonna adopted a son, David, from the country a few years back.
Madge allegedly revealed the news in American Revolutionaries: The Hitmakers, a docu-series which focuses on some of pop music's most influential artists, which the 52-year-old most certainly is.
Madonna said, "My short term goals are to build an orphan care center that will service and reach at least 1,000 children and I'm also actively involved in funding several orphanages that already exist." That's a big, noble goal and the Material Girl certainly has the resources (and the ambition) to pull off this charitable endeavor.
Madge attempted to build a $15 million school in Malawi, with the hopes of providing an education to approximately 400 girls, but those plans fell through in March.
Big ups to Madonna for not giving up on her goal to help the people of the southeast African nation of Malawi.
