    TheSingersRoom.com reports that Nelly Furtado has made the generous donation of $1 million to Free the Children, a charity which helps impoverished girls around the globe.

    Furtado announced the news at We Day in Toronto, Canada last week.

    Furtado stated, "My charitable mission is to empower girls around the world to realize their full potential. I left a piece of my heart in Kenya earlier this year and I can't wait to get started on helping girls like the ones I met build a brighter future for themselves, their families and communities."

    Go Nelly! What a generous and helpful thing you did by donating a cool $1 million to help empower girls!
