The American blogger Perez Hilton whose blog traffic is in millions has through a post solicited funds for a Malawian project, "Amai a Thanzi" This move has caused some Malawians to conclude that Perez Hilton is more practical in solving the problem of Malawians than Madonna is. The Post Perz Hilton's blog was entitled "A Worthwile Cause" describe the project: "The Amai Athanzi Project is working in partnership with GAIA. (The Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance) an NGO based in San Francisco, California. GAIA is committed to helping people in Malawi with HIV/AIDS by providing programmes to improve prevention and care. We are very grateful for the help and support of GAIA both here and in Malawi." This came amid the news that Madonna had given millions to the Kabbalah religion and barely nothing to Malawi in the just ended year. This has caused some critics to paint Madonna as a hypocrite. Madonna adopted David Banda from Malawi, a country that bent its rules to allow her to legally adopt the child. Perez Hilton, who was a critic of Madonna's monetary distribution to charities has through the post demonstrated that he can do what is in his power to help those in need. Perez Hilton whose real name is Mario Lavandeira claims to own the most hated website in Hollywood because of his criticisms of Hollywood celebrities. The blog post "Worthwile cause" received praise from many of his readers. Mahara, a Malawian wrote: "May Jesus take your wheel. Perez thank you so much for this. I'm a reader of yours from Malawi and there really isn't enough attention being put on the challenges our country is facing" The Webmaster of the Amayi a Thanzi website, Aryssa Brook responded to Perez with gratitude, thanking him for shedding light on the project. John Bandawe, a Malawian living in the USA praised Lavandeira saying: "Perez Hilton is better than Madonna because he is very practical. Few months ago Madonna asked for our money to build schools in Malawi. She did not contribute any penny and she really expect me to give from wallet?"
