Where we are going today: Dum Dum Donuts

Dum Dum Donuts is franchised from the UK and has over 35 branches worldwide. Two of them are in the Middle East: In Dubai and Jeddah.

The shop offers baked, filled, glazed and multi-layered doughnuts.

The Jeddah branch, in the Al-Nahdah district, offers over 20 flavors.

All of the doughnuts are made from croissant dough filled with tasty ingredients such as kunafa cream, cream cheese and dulce de leche.

Its signature doughnut is “The Zebra,” which contains layers of chocolate croissant dough filled with buttercream and topped with chocolate ganache.

The Jeddah branch also offers coffee, including their signature salted caramel and cold karak coffee.

You will feel full with one doughnut as they are almost treble the size of normal doughnuts. They cost between SR11 and SR21 ($3 and $5.60).

Madonna raises funds for victims of Beirut explosion

DUBAI: American singer and songwriter Madonna announced on Monday that she and her two children, David Banda and Mercy James, are hosting an art sale to support victims of the massive explosion that ripped through Beirut on Aug. 4, killing over 200 and injuring thousands.

In a video posted to the 61-year-old star’s Instagram account, Madonna can be seen sitting on the ground painting a sign that read “Proceeds go to Impact Lebanon.” (Instagram)

The proceeds from the sales will go to the non-profit organization Impact Lebanon, which has been helping the hundreds of thousands left homeless after the deadly blast.

Other celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, DJ Khaled and Dua Lipa, have been taking to social media to show solidarity for the victims, and online influencers around the world have been urging their followers to make donations towards rescue and recovery work.

American actor George Clooney and his wife, Lebanese-British human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, also revealed earlier this week they are donating $100,000 to Lebanese charities.
