Coldplay rockers Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Guy Berryman have hearts as big as their paychecks. Literally. They group has donated £1 million to a children’s charity.
The band has always been a huge supporter of Kids Company, which helps underprivileged children who lack adult support, and have generously given the cash to help the organization achieve its goals.
Founder Camila Batmanghelidjh said: “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.”
Not only have they donated money, they've visited the charity on several occasions and even plan on returning to give the kids music lessons. How amazing is that? Can you imagine getting piano lessons from Chris Martin?
These guys have proven time and again that they're one of the most generous bands out there. Not only are they donating a part of their paychecks, they're donating their time. Such great role models! Kudos to Coldplay.
