Rosa Acosta, mostly known for her large ASSets, has taken a step outside the box. The model/singer wanted to lend a helping hand, so she took a 10-day trip to Tanzania, where she volunteered at the Living Water Children’s Center. Showing the children some cool dance moves and helping to feed them was only a small contribution, Rosa felt like she should make. In this world however, no matter what you do, someone will find a problem with it. People of the Dominican descent reached out to Rosa and wanted to know why she was in Tanzania and not the Dominican Republic (her home turf). Welp, she details that, after the jump.

Rosa Acosta’s Statement:
A few of my fellow Dominicans ( who I’m pretty sure have NEVER volunteer once in their life ) have not just ask buy kind of “demand” as to why I’m volunteering in Tanzania and not DR. “DR is very poor too” Mmmm NO SH-T Sherlock! I lived there 22 years and most of my family still there so you are not telling Me anything new. Yes DR is very poor, still can’t compare to Tanzania, but that is irrelevant since I am NOT here making it rain on the kids. DR might be poor but our culture is much more advance in terms of equal rights for Male/Female.
In DR Girls are not being circumcised, giving on marriage in exchange of a few cows and chickens to a man much more older than them before they are even born or rape on daily basis by their own father. Girls in DR are able to go to school just like the boys unlike here in Tanzania. So just know that I am here working towards a cause bigger than a few dollars. I am here volunteering my TIME, teaching BALLET and assisting at the school and hospital, and most of all giving the kids LOVE (not money). Now let me tell you about a few things I have done in DR: I volunteer for 5 years at Hogares Luby In Santiago. I had a Ballet school in La Vega with a full scholarship program for talented girls that couldn’t afford the classes. But my biggest charity in DR is MY FAMILY. I sent every year what for some of you looks like a year worth of salary. My mother is retire and well taking care of by Me and my brother. So now mis amigos let’s take all that energy you put into what I am or should do and use it towards what YOU are doing or SHOULD do. Let’s do it together and sing Guan tu guan tu tri fol fai Animo Animo Animo!!! Now go do something nice doesn’t matter where. Oh and btw lets not forget that we Dominicans are Africans too donate here: Livingwaterchildren.org or to the group I feed the homeless every Wednesday @wefeedthehungry myfriendshousela.org or go buy a #bodybyrosaacosta and help Me at cossamia.com
