Madonna Helps Her Ancestral Homeland

The Material Girl is giving something back to the land of her ancestors.

Madonna has promised $500,000 to help victims of Italy’s devastating earthquake, said Fernando Caparso, mayor of Pacentro, the mountainside village where two of the pop star’s grandparents were born.

Carparso told The Associated Press on Wednesday that that he had spoken to the pop star’s manager and that he was deeply moved by Madonna’s effort to assist the town as well as surrounding areas.

“Madonna was the only one who could help us,” he said. “Other then being a great singer, a great rock star and an intelligent woman, with this gesture she has become a great woman,” he said.

Liz Rosenberg, the pop singer’s spokeswoman, confirmed that Madonna had pledged a “substantial amount,” in quake relief but didn’t disclose the exact figure.
