– Rihanna took to Instagram to share that she alongside Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey donated 4,000 iPads to students in the singer’s home country of Barbados.
– The Fenty Beauty CEO and the Twitter co-founder worked together on previous charitable endeavors, including donating $4.2 million to Los Angeles domestic violence shelters in April.
Rihanna and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey are continuing to help those in need amid uncertain times.
On Thursday, the pop star took to social media to share a video message from Barbados Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, announcing that the singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation along with Dorsey’s #StartSmall initiative, donated 4,000 iPads to students on the island. Rihanna and Dorsey have regularly teamed up for charitable purposes amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, including partnering up for a joint donation of $4.2 million that went towards Los Angeles based domestic violence shelters.
Rihanna, who usually stays mum when it comes to her charitable contributions, admitted to her pride of working alongside Prime Minister Mottley for her latest endeavor.
“I don’t usually do this, but I’m such a fan of my Prime Minister @mamottley ! What an honor to be an ambassador of my country through your leadership! Thank you for taking the time to say these kind words!” wrote Rihanna. “Huge thank you to my brother @gallest for spearheading this project and to Jack Dorsey’s #StartSmall foundation for always supporting the @ClaraLionelFdn ! 💛✊🏿🇧🇧”
Back in April, Rihanna paired up again with Dorsey as well as Jay Z to donate $6.2 million towards coronavirus relief in highly vulnerable cities such as New York, New Orleans, and Puerto Rico. The singer also paused sales on all three of her business ventures—Fenty Beauty, Savage x Fenty and her Fenty clothing line—on Blackout Tuesday in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
