Hips don't lie and neither does Shakira when she says she truly backs her charitable endeavors. The Colombian pop star taped a Christmas television ad for a Spanish sparkling wine known as cava, in exchange for a donation of $660,000 to her charitable foundation. Shakira filmed the sport last week in Barcelona and the money donated by Freixenet will be used to build two schools: one in Haiti and one in Colombia.
"Education is a birthright and a quality education is the only tool that a child has to turns dreams into reality," the 33-year-old pop dynamo said. "Since I was a girl I have been aware of the tough reality faced by many children."
Under the deal Freixenet will also produce a video clip for Shakira's song "Sale el sol" as well as a documentary about the singer's philanthropic work, whose Pies Descalzos foundation already manages six schools in Colombia.
Have you ever drank cava, which is used to toast friends in Spain?
