Philanthropists and celebs of all races and creeds came out last night to support Gucci and Madonna's A NIGHT TO BENEFIT RAISING MALAWI and UNICEF held on the lawn of the United Nations in NYC and raised $3.7 million to help poor and sick children around the world. Guests dressed to the nines dined on a $2,500-a-plate dinner and participated in a live auction hosted by Chris Rock. Guests also enjoyed performances including Rihanna, Alicia Keys and Malawian acts.

UNICEF reports show that HIV/AIDS affects almost 1 million people in Malawi, including 83,000 children, and half of the country's 1 million orphans have lost one or both parents to AIDS. The event was a very necessary success.

I am proud of those people, can't wait for the day soon when death and sickness will be no more.

I really like Djimon, nice picture!
