Bruno Mars closed out his “24K Magic World Tour” in his hometown of Honolulu, where he also provided Thanksgiving meals to 24,000 Hawaiians. According to The Grio, Mars announced plans Sunday morning (November 11th) to make the donation through the Salvation Army’s Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division’s 48th annual Thanksgiving Dinner meal program.
Salvation Army Major Jeff Martin said in a statement, “We are humbled and honored by this generous donation from Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars. Because of his amazing gift, 24,000 meals will be provided to those in need on this Thanksgiving holiday in Hawaii. 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.”
Complex reports that the number 24,000 is a gesture to the name of Mars’ world tour and album.
