Rihanna Does Her Bit for Charity
It looks like Rihanna doesn’t spend all her money on haircuts, tattoos and open toed heels. The Bajan singer donated $1.75m to a cancer hospital in Barbados to honour her late grandmother Clare Braithwaite.
Rihanna is spending Christmas on the tropical island and made the generous donation to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Bridgetown.
Fans of the Diamonds singer are well aware of how close she was to her grandmother, nicknamed Gran Gran Dolly. Rihanna posted numerous photos of her during her fight with cancer and even flew out to New York to be by her bedside when she took a turn for the worst. The radiotherapy department at the hospital has now being renamed the Clare Braithwaite centre for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine.
Well done Ri-Ri, we salute you!
