Madonna and Gucci teamed up in raising funds for Malawi

Madonna has teamed up with luxyry goods-maker Gucci to raise funds for orphans in Melbourne to raise funds for orphans in Malawi, the home of her nearly-adopted child David Banda.

It was said that Madonna has revealed that the event will aid UNICEF and the charity she co-founded in 2006. The charity aims to end poverty and hardship suffered by Malawi's one million orphans.

Madonna stated that she was grateful that Gucci had joined forces to bring attention to a country with millions of children in desperate need of their help. She also stated that raising Malawi has already done tremendous work in helping these children.

The said event will hopefully raise at least two million dollars with Madonna joined by a list of celebrity co-chairs for the events, including Adrien Brody, Arpad Busson, Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault, Tea Leoni, Lucy Liu, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher and Gwyneth Paltrow.
