According to reports, She Wolf hitmaker Shakira has raised $660,000 to build schools in her home country Colombia and in Haiti. The singer has apparently agreed for her image to be used in an advert for a Spanish cava drink and in return the company makes donations to her charitable foundation Pies Descalzos.
“Education is a birthright and a quality education is the only tool that a child has to turn dreams into reality,” she said. “Since I was a girl I have been aware of the tough reality faced by many children.”
According to the terms of the agreement, Freixenet (the company) will also produce a documentary about Shakira’s charitable foundation and they’ll be in charge with the music video for the singer’s forthcoming single Sale El Sol.
