Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman are patrons of the canine charity K9 Friends in Barbados. For several years they have supported the charities fundraiser auction day over Christmas.
Last year Simon and Lauren adopted Daisy from the rescue centre. This year the charity was having difficulty keeping their clinic open without the funds. Simon generously donated US $250,000 of his own money to keep the much needed clinic running.
A representative of K9 Friends Barbados, Karen Rasmussen revealed the $250,000 donation to be made to the charity via social media.
“I cannot believe how one man can be so generous!” wrote Rasmussen in a post to the Facebook page of the pet adoption service and clinic. “I can’t stop crying. Tonight, Simon Cowell asked me how much we needed to run the clinic for the year, and I told him $250 thousand us dollars. He has given us that amount!”
