While the world waits for Rihanna‘s new album, the singer and businesswoman continues to grow in the business and fashion world, and is also doing something good for the planet, donating US$ 15 million to the fight to climate change.
The million-dollar donation was made through the Clara Lionel Foundation, created by Rihanna in 2012, and benefits 18 organizations across the United States and the Caribbean that support the climate justice movement. The organizations supported by Rihanna’s donation are led by women, youth, black, indigenous and LGBTQIA+ communities.
“Climate disasters, which are growing in frequency and intensity, do not impact all communities equally, with communities of color and island nations facing the brunt of climate change“, Rihanna said in a statement.
