For a mere 100 pennies, Rihanna fans have the chance to attend this year’s star-studded Diamond Ball. In support of the Clara Lionel Foundation, every dollar donated as part of the "dollar campaign" is an entry to win travel accommodations and event tickets for you and a guest.
For this year's New York City event, Rihanna has enlisted Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, and host Dave Chappelle. "I'm thrilled that the incomparable Dave Chappelle will kick things off as the official host of this year's Diamond Ball and Kendrick Lamar will take the stage for an unforgettable performance," she said in a statement.
Founded back in 2012, Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation gives donors the chance to serve as what they call "global ambassadors for education." Even with a donation as small as $l, fans can help provide one brick to a school in Malawi. Rihanna's foundation currently presides over the Clara Lionel Foundation Global Scholarship Program and the Barbados Micro Grants Program.
Rihanna, as shown in this summer's documentary, recently visited Malawi students in collaboration with Global Citizen. In July, Rihanna discussed her push for improved education in the region with French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron.
Harvard University awarded Rihanna the Humanitarian of the Year distinction in February.
