In the spirit of the giving season, Bruno Mars is giving back to the citizens of his home state in a very big way.
The “Versace On The Floor” singer reportedly donated to the Salvation Army-Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division’s 48th annual Thanksgiving Dinner meal program, which will provide 24,000 Thanksgiving meals to families in Hawaii.
“We are humbled and honored by this generous donation from Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars,” Salvation Army Major Jeff Martin said, per the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. “Because of his amazing gift, 24,000 meals will be provided to those in need on this Thanksgiving holiday in Hawaii. Bruno is a shining example of how people in Hawaii step forward and take care of one another and we are grateful to him for his aloha and kokua.”
This past weekend, Mars played to three sold-out shows on the island and posted an adorable photo of himself as a child of the Aloha State.
“Let’s have a good time tonight Hawaii! Most importantly, let’s show love and aloha to everyone driving down and attending the concert,” he wrote. I’ve missed you all and I can’t wait to perform and sing on the island I call home.”
As we know, 24K is a very important number to Mars, as his last album 24K Magic won five awards at the Grammys earlier this year, including Album Of The Year. This is a fantastic way to celebrate the holiday properly. Good on ya, Bruno.
