Following the massive success of his “24K Magic” album and international tour which concluded at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu this past Sunday, Bruno Mars gave back to people in need in his homeland of Hawaii.
Mars reportedly partnered with the Salvation Army’s 48th annual Thanksgiving Dinner meal program to provide 24,000 Thanksgiving meals to those in need.
Mars’ third concert tour dubbed the “24K Magic World Tour” began on March 28 last year at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp, and concluded this year at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on Nov. 11.
Both a critical and commercial success, the entire tour earned a gross revenue of over $357.5 million.
Prior to his final tour leg in Hawaii, he shared an image of his younger self, holding a microphone on Instagram.
“I’ve missed you all and I can’t wait to perform and sing on the island I call home,” Mars wrote.
In a statement, Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands division leader, Major Jeff Martin, expressed his appreciation of Mars’ donation, CNN reports.
“We are humbled and honored by this generous donation from Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars,” Martin was quoted as saying.
“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.”
