Madonna Joins Jay-Z & Meek Mill, Donates 100,00 Masks To Prisons Hit Hard By Pandemic
COVID-19 spreads most quickly in crowded and closed environments, and jails and prisons are at high risk for an outbreak. This is a huge threat to public health. Organizations like the Reform Alliance are bringing together leaders in business, government, entertainment, sports, technology, art to help.
"Conditions are ripe for the virus to spread quickly and silently." — There's no social distancing behind bars. Hygiene products are scarce. Medical treatment is limited.

In an attempt to protect prison inmates and staff, who cannot socially distance because of the conditions in correctional facilities, Madonna has partnered with the Reform Alliance. In addition to Jay-Z and Meek Mill, the founding partners include Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, Kraft Group CEO and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Brooklyn Nets co-owner, Clara Wu Tsai.

Madonna‘s Ray Of Light Foundation will be providing 100,000 masks to distribute to those in need. Her involvement with the Reform Alliance comes after her controversial COVID-19 comments. The ‘Material Girl’ singer recently called the deadly virus a “great equalizer”.
The legendary singer has also been doing a social media show called ‘Quarantine Diaries.
Madonna confused many with her recent nude Coronavirus message where she said,
“That’s the thing about COVID-19: it doesn’t care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are, how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It’s the great equalizer. And what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it.”
Do you think Madonna’s philanthropy is genuine? Let us know your thoughts below.
