Scoring tickets to a live event you’ve been dreaming of is a great feeling. Ditto for donating to a worthwhile cause. You can do both thanks to our partnership with the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), a group supporting cancer treatment in Barbados founded by superstar and altruist Rihanna.
Till August 2, fans buying tickets on Ticketmaster can support life-saving cancer treatments by donating $5, $10, or $25 dollars to the CLF during checkout. Donations support the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, the only public cancer treatment facility in all of Barbados.
Rihanna founded the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012 in honor of her grandparents. In just a few years the organization has grown to encompass a range of humanitarian efforts including children’s health and enrichment, emergency response to natural disasters, and HIV/AIDS and cancer treatment.

On Wednesday, June 3, 2015, at 7:30 PM PT, Robinson Cano will host Canoche – a night with Robinson Cano and friends to benefit the RC22 Foundation, a 501c3 public charity founded by Cano. The Latin-themed Supper Club fundraiser, held at Paramount Theater located at 911 Pine Street in Seattle, will include a night of dinner, dancing, recognition ceremony honoring the Seattle Mariners, live and silent auction, and a special presentation and introduction to the RC22 Foundation. Several special guests will be in attendance to support Cano during his first inaugural Seattle fundraiser including Roc Nation Sports founder JAY Z, Rihanna, CC and Amber Sabathia along with several Mariners teammates such as Félix Hernández, Nelson Cruz, and Kyle Seager.
During Rihanna’s most recent visit to Barbados, she supported life-saving changes at The Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine (CBCONM) located inside the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Bridgetown. The Clara Lionel Foundation donated what is currently the only piece of equipment at the hospital used to treat cancer. The acquisition of the new equipment offers state-of-the-art technology which will improve the quality of treatment and techniques among patients, greater reliability of services, timely access to oncology and nuclear medicine services, and new and more sophisticated radiation oncology treatment techniques.
This center which serves the entire population of Barbados provides the citizens of the island with better access to care for cancer in many years to come.

Fendi presents the 3Baguette charity project in collaboration with five iconic New York women: musician Rihanna, artist Rachel Feinstein, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, model Jourdan Dunn and blogger Leandra Medine, who have been invited by Fendi to personalize their own 3Baguette bag, allowing for a completely unique and fully interpreted creation that will be auctioned to benefit five charities of their choosing.
The online auction starts on Feburary 13th and ends March 13th, 2015.
Chart-topping performing artist Rihanna infused her strong and distinctive style into her 3Baguette bag featuring a double F pattern on the flap and the back embroidered in black lurex on mink tone on tone. Sides and front are in black velvet. The croco handle creates a beautiful contrast to the velvet sides, while the black crystal stones give a luxurious touch to the closure made in ultra-black ruthenium.
Rihanna’s Micro Baguette is designed in gunmetal grey with beaded embroidery for a high-fashion aesthetic. With matching ultra-black ruthenium accessories, the bag is a perfect charm for Rihanna’s 3Baguette.

Fendi has teamed with Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Feinstein, Jourdan Dunn and Leandra Medine on a new charity project that will mark the official inauguration of the brand’s newest flagship on Madison Avenue in New York.
Fendi has asked the five women to personalize their own 3Baguette handbag — a style launched at the end of last year that reinterprets the Fendi accessory with a more structured shape and the FF logo becoming a lock rather than simply a decorative element. Parker, Rihanna and Feinstein have also designed micro-baguette models. The bags will be unveiled at a cocktail party at the new store on Feb. 13 hosted by Karl Lagerfeld, Silvia Venturini Fendi and chairman and chief executive officer Pietro Beccari.
The bags will be on display at the New York unit from Feb. 13 to March 13 and available for purchase at the same time through a dedicated online auction site, launch3baguetteauction.fendi.com, which Fendi is launching at the end of this month.
Proceeds will be channeled to charitable organizations selected by each woman. Rihanna proceeds will benefit The Clara Lionel Foundation, which she founded in 2012 in honor of her grandparents, and which works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture.

Brad Pitt had a fun time introducing Rihanna’s performance last night at the singer’s inaugural Diamond Ball charity gala in Beverly Hills.
With a photo of a young RiRi flashing on large screens adjacent to the stage, Pitt said with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, “I’ve often asked the very questions you yourself are asking right now—what the f–k went wrong?
“I give you exhibit A,” he said. “Look at the young girl before you, all full of hopes and dreams, living a humble existence in Barbados, her whole life ahead of her.”
Pitt said Rihanna landed in New York City at just 16 years old, but “soon fell in with a bad crowd led by the dubious and nefarious character known as The Jay Z.”
“For those you not in the know, The Jay Z was an evil impresario known for turning out hit records and ripping insane lyrics and fresh beats,” he said as the room erupted with laughter. “Needless to say it was all downhill from there.”
Pitt didn’t stop there…
