Shaw and Ne-Yo (Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr.) already have two children together, daughter Madilyn Grace Smith (born 11/12/2010) and son born less than a year later, Mason Evan Smith (born 10/09/2011) but it’s clear they have plenty of dough to go around.
So what does Shaw do? She “adopts” 48 hungry African children.
To be clear, Shaw isn’t turning into Angelina Jolie and inviting needy children into her home. She’s more like the late night commercial-free adoptive mom, the one who sends a check after seeing hungry children on television.

Of course, to provide similar care in the U.S. would run roughly the same … PER CHILD
Charity should always start at home…. but at least it started somewhere. But why now?
