Madonna donates to Haiti fund
Madonna has donated 250,000 US dollars to help the people of Haiti - and she is urging her fans and friends to donate too.
The superstar said her "prayers" were with people affected by the disaster.
In a statement, Madonna said: "My prayers are with the people of Haiti. I can't imagine the terrible pain and suffering they are experiencing."
She continued: "Sadly, the depths of the tragedy are just becoming known and the need for our support grows more urgent with every passing moment.
"I have given a donation of 250,000 dollars to assist Haiti's earthquake victims through Partners in Health (www.pih.org), one of Haiti's leading healthcare providers.
"I urge all of my friends and fans around the world to join me collectively to match my contribution or give in any way you can. We must act now. Thank you for your support."
