I am sure that what every little Malawian child wanted for Christmas was an autographed picture of Madonna and autographed notes from her kids. Well, if that is what they really wanted that is what they got. Madonna, sent along autographs and hand me downs from her kids to the kids in the Malwai orphanage where she found Mercy.
Madonna did send along toys and sweets and new clothes for the kids, so I don't really understand why she also sent along hand me down clothes from her own kids. Maybe she thinks the villagers can sell them all on eBay and raise some money? I just thought it was really odd. Maybe she thinks they will be treated like some kind of religious shroud. Yeah, that could be it. She probably feels like she is their savior and they will worship it.
