Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are celebrating their birthdays by giving back.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a personal donation of $130,000 to CAMFED, the African girl’s education charity. The royal couple have a long relationship with the organization.
According to CAMFED, “We catalyze the power of the most vulnerable girls and young women to create the future they imagine — for themselves, for their communities, and for Africa.”
CAMFED also launched an online campaign for their birthdays, reaching a total of $129,000.
