On January 14 2010, Madonna sent her condolences to the people in Haiti:

“My prayers are with the people of Haiti. I can’t imagine the terrible pain and suffering they are experiencing. Sadly the depths of the tragedy are just becoming known and the need for our support grows more urgent with every passing moment. I have given a donation of $250,000 to assist Haiti’s earthquake victims through Partner’s in Health (www.pih.org) one of Haiti’s leading health care providers. I urge all of my friends and fans around the world to join me collectively to match my contribution or give in any way you can. We must act now. Thank you for your support.”

On July 20 2010, photos by Steven Klein for Dolce and Gabbana’s Fall Winter 2010/2011 ad campaign featuring Madonna surfaced on the internet.

Capturing an Italian family lead by the matriarchal figure of Madonna, the campaign told the story of a close knit family.  From a family portrait to a meal at the table, the images showed a new direction for the Italian luxury brand.
