    Cosmo Donates Millions to Stanford
    Cosmopolitan has upped its charitable donations to include Stanford University.

    The best and brightest from Stanford University will soon be receiving a hefty donation from one of the world's biggest women's magazine.

    According to the Wall Street Journal , Cosmopolitan Magazine editor in chief Helen Gurley Brown will donate 30 million dollars to both Stanford and Columbia University.  Each will equally split the funds.

    The money will help pay for a media innovation lab to help merge new technologies with journalism and other media.

    The donation is in honor of her late husband who graduated from both universities.

    Brown, who turns 90 in February, is also known for writing the 1962 best seller "Sex and the Single Girl".

    Her husband David, who died in 2010, was a Hollywood producer who worked on the hit movies "Jaws" and "Driving Miss Daisy."
