Bruno Mars made his own “24K Magic” this holiday season by giving back to his hometown.
The pop singer donated to the Salvation Army-Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division’ s 48th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner meal program, providing 24,000 Thanksgiving meals to families in Hawaii.
Mars visited his home state this past weekend, playing three sold-out shows. He took to Instagram to express his appreciation for his hometown fans.
“We are humbled and honored by this generous donation from Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars,” Salvation Army Major Jeff Martin said, via 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.”
24K seems to be Mars’ magic number, as his 24K Magic album won Album of the Year at the Grammys.
