Singer Madonna made Christmas merry for a group of orphans this past weekend:
“Madonna shipped boxes and bales containing toys, chocolate and sweets to six orphanages in the birth country of her adopted daughter, Mercy. Along with the goodies, the 52-year-old star included a handwritten note that read “To my Malawi children on Christmas and Boxing Day. I wish I was with you. See you soon, M.” …. Also in the bales were new clothing and items that Madonna, Lourdes, Rocco and Mercy have outgrown and can no longer use,” officials tell UsMagazine.com.
