Destiny's Child Give Money, Dolls To Hometown AIDS Charity

R&B singers donate $30,000 and 300 toys to AIDS Foundation Houston.

Destiny's Child gave a little something special at their homecoming show on Friday at the Houston Rodeo — a check for $30,000.

The R&B singers donated the money, along with 300 of their signature dolls, to AIDS Foundation Houston, an organization that provides resources for AIDS services.

AFH is the first institute to receive a contribution from Destiny's Child's new charity, the Survivor Foundation, according to the foundation's chief executive officer, Michael B. Mizwa.

"AFH would like to commend Destiny's Child for stepping up to the plate and addressing HIV/AIDS locally and recognizing that this disease is still a growing concern for Houstonians," he said in a statement.

The Destiny's Child dolls will be handed out in the summer at AFH's Camp Hope, a retreat for children who are living with HIV or AIDS.

A few days after donating the funds, Destiny's Child donated their voices to Canadian singer Celine Dion at a concert at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre. Together they performed "Emotion" from Destiny's Child's Survivor and "When the Wrong One Loves You Right" from Dion's upcoming album, A New Day Has Come. The concert will air April 7 on CBS at 8 p.m. as part of the special "Celine Dion: A New Day Has Come."

This Is the Remix, Destiny's Child's first remix album, is due Tuesday (see "Destiny's Child Mix It Up With Remix Album").
