Bruno Mars to help provide 24K Thanksgiving meals to the needy in Hawaii
Bruno Mars is ending his highly successful 24K Magic World Tour on a high note by announcing that he'll provide 24,000 meals to Hawaiian residents in need this Thanksgiving.
Bruno Mars has decided to give back a lot this Thanksgiving, with the 33-year-old 'That's what I like' singer helping to provide meals to 24 thousand people who live in Hawaii on November 22.
Bruno is working with the Hawaii Community Foundation and will be donating to the Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving Dinner Program in the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division.
The number of people who will be lucky to receive Bruno's donation come from the name of his song, album, and tour '24K Magic'. A press release stated that his contribution is "single-handedly expanding [the program’s] reach across the state".
Even though Mars may not be the one cooking thousands of meals himself, he is pretty handy around the kitchen. Earlier in November, he took to Twitter to share, "U know every now and then I turn the stove on & make myself a salami sandwich. I think it’s best if u all knew that... Alright.. take care".

Mars will be concluding his worldwide tour on Sunday in his native Honolulu which will be his third consecutive night at the Aloha Stadium which can hold about 50,000 people. He had taken to his social media to share his excitement about entertaining the Hawaii crowds. He wrote, "Let’s have a good time tonight Hawaii! Most importantly, let’s show love and aloha to everyone driving down and attending the concert. I’ve missed you all and I can’t wait to perform and sing on the island I call home. see you tonight!!"
Towards the last stretch of his tour, Bruno Mars had added Charlie Wilson, Ella Mai, Boyz II Men, and Ciara after rapper Cardi B had to drop out in order to focus on her 4-month-old baby girl Kulture Kiari.
Even in the past, Bruno has done commendable charity work. In 2017, he announced that he would be donating around $1 million to help people who had been affected by the Flint water crisis in Michigan. At the time he said, "Ongoing challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it’s important that we don’t forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster. As people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again."
