Coldplay Give Seven Figures to Charity


It's easy to make fun of Coldplay, but not when they do something like this. NME reports that the Brit-rock giants have donated one million pounds to Kids Company, a London-based charity whose stated aim is "to provide practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children and young people." According to NME, the band's members have also visited Kids Company centers, and they plan to give music lessons to the kids there. They're putting their mouths where their money is.


Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh told NME, "They were moved by the tough stories they heard and want to be genuine participants ... I got the feeling the donation was something they had planned from the start of their careers."


Keep in mind, Americans, that this total amounts to $1,616,809 U.S. dollars. That's a lot of money!
