My Revolution has nothing to do with bloodshed or violence.
It is a revolution where we support one another regardless of race, religion, or gender.
A revolution that promotes peace and demands equality.
I don’t accept injustice. And neither should you.
I invite you all to join my Revolution of Love!
The Ray of Light Foundation supports organizations
around the world working to promote peace, equal rights and education for all.
Ray of Light supports Madonna’s Art for Freedom initiative, which encourages creative expression that brings awareness about human rights violations. Each month, Madonna and a guest curator select an artist who best embodies the mission of Art for Freedom. Ray of Light then gives a grant to the nonprofit organization of that artist’s choice. Below is a list of featured artists and their grantee organizations:
DECEMBER Winner (guest curator David Blaine): Joy Parker’s video “Terminal Freedom”; grantees are Greater Rochester Muscular Dystrophy Association and The ALS Association; Upstate NY Chapter. Watch the video here.
JANUARY Winner Chaz Buzan’s video “Love – for Art for Freedom”; grantee is National Alliance on Mental Illness Southeast Valley. Watch the video here.
In 2012, Madonna and Raising Malawi partnered with the nonprofit organization buildOn to construct ten schools in Kasungu, Malawi. The schools, which are currently serving more than 4,800 children in Malawi, were completed nearly 6 months ahead of schedule.
In 2013, Madonna will support the construction of buildOn’s pilot secondary school in Mali, West Africa. Lack of access to education in Mali has resulted in one of the lowest adult literacy rates in the world, hovering around 20% for women and 36% for men. The new secondary school will serve 300 students per year and will educate girls and boys in equal numbers.
