Drake’s Valentine Revealed

Drake added another good deed to his ever growing list.

The “God’s Plan” rapper used Cupid’s love arrow to strike a 63-year-old hotel maid from Miami with a full day of pampering.

According to People, Drake spoiled the housekeeper from Fontainebleau Miami Beach with a $10,000 Saks Fifth Avenue shopping spree.

Minutes after meeting her. “I always just saw him on the TV. So I said, ‘Drake!'” Paret told the Miami Herald about the moment the rapper introduced himself. “It made me happy…I thank him so much.”

Drake told the Miami native she could have whatever she wanted in the store.

Walking away with $800 flats, a $2,000 Valentino handbag, four perfumes and a $6,000 18-karat, white gold necklace with diamonds.

Before getting a massage in her own hotel’s spa. Boss moves, baby.

Drake teamed up with Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown to give fairy God father treatment to Odalie Paret, a mother of five who travels four hours to get to work.

Don’t say this superwoman isn’t deserving of this VIP treatment.

Drake learned about Odalie’s story by reading about it her in Miami Herald–that focused on city’s increasing rent prices–and wanted to help her.

Talk about an epic Valentine’s Day.

Drake’s Taking Over Miami with Philanthropy

Last name Ever, first Name Greatest.

Guess Drake was rapping about his giving game on “Forever” because he’s seriously on a roll in the 305.

On Monday he was writing checks to a college student and Miami Senior High School. On Tuesday the “God’s Plan” rapper was surprising shoppers at Sabor Tropical Supermarket with $50,000 worth of groceries.

According to Wral.com, Drake pulled up to the market with a megaphone announcing his good deed. No doubt the cameras (Drizzy had a film crew with him) caught the delight of the lucky shoppers as he shook hands and took selfies.

“No one knew he was coming at all, we just came to do groceries. Cameras were being set up so we were all wondering what was to happen,” shopper Guille Deza told E! News.

A real king [went] out and paid for everyone’s groceries in the store, all the while encouraging people to more lol. BE GOOD AND IT’LL COME RIGHT BACK AROUND!!! so much love and bless this man 100 times over for all his generosity,” Deza wrote on Instagram.

Drizzy wasn’t done yet. He surprised residents at a local homeless shelter–Lotus Village–and wrote a $50,000 check for the organization. Plus, donated a van…and showered 130 women at the shelter with a $150 Target gift card. And handed out toys and games for the 140 kids living there.

Drake’s generosity spree even got to him. He posted on Instagram “Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time…there’s nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they really need it the most.”

Okay, Drake you may be G.O.A.T on giving.

Rihanna Helped Raise Billions for Education Fundraising Overseas

Rihanna may have helped raised $2.3 billion dollars for global education on Friday, but she’s not even close to finishing her goal.

“We’ve made tremendous progress today, but of course, our work is never done,” Rihanna told the crowd at the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) fundraising conference in Senegal.

“We have a long way to go and this is a fight that we’re never going to stop fighting until every boy and every girl has access to education.” Rihanna preached at the podium.

Rih Rih was named GPE’s global ambassador to foster education last year. And since then the “Work, Work, Work” pop icon has been doing just that.

The Harvard Humanitarian has led donation drives through her Clara Lionel Foundation–that funds education, health and emergency response programs–and wrapped a mini doc where she visited a school in Malawi.

You better earn those miles for a cause, sis.

Drake Goes on Giving Spree in Miami

Drizzy was “sharing the wealth” all across M.I.A on Monday, when he was in town to shoot his “God’s Plan” video.

Btw, the song is already No. 1 on Billboards Top 100 singles chart.

But y’all knew that because it’s all over your iTunes playlist.

Drake’s first stop was at Miami Senior High School, where not only did he drop off a $25,000 check, but had students set up with OVO-designed uniforms.

Let’s just say that was a big fat thank you from Drake for allowing him to shoot his music video at the school.

Umm, Drizzy you can always use my apartment for your music videos…I’m just sayin’…if you’re ever in Charlotte…holla at your girl.

The “Diplomatic Immunity” rapper also surprised a University of Miami student with $50,000 check to go towards her tuition.

Destiny James, who received a few college scholarships, thought she’d be participating in a video shoot chatting up the value of free money for school. Nope!

Billboard reports, Drake came out the bushes with a big ‘ol check to reveal the real reason of the shoot.

Destiny replayed the moment in her Insta story.

This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I've been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I'm living out my dreams. God's Plan 🙏🏾

Colin Kaepernick Completes Million Dollar Donation Challenge

Here’s how you roll into Black History month, fam.

Colin ‘our black prince’ Kaepernick has hit the one milly mark on his pledge to donate to underserved communities around the country.

When I started my #MillionDollarPledge and committed to donate $1,000,000 towards various programs – my original intent was to help the organizations on the ground doing much needed work within our communities.  The goal was to help those helping others. To touch those impacting lives in a real way and to make sure that those in need benefited from the dollars donated.  While on the journey, what I realized was the person that benefited the most from this pledge was myself. I've learned about and had the privilege to work with so many quality organizations fighting for Social Justice daily. I've met so many people that work with so many great non-profits that do amazing work. I've been humbled by the appreciation from places like Assata’s Daughters, United We Dream, and Standing Rock to name just a few of where my contributions from my pledge were able to help. The #MillionDollarPledge was never for me, or about me – It has, and always will continue to be for, and about the people. Perhaps what I've learned most is that we can all enact change. Not everyone has to donate monetarily. Some organizations need volunteers and time just as much as they need a donation. Head over to Kaepernick7.com to learn more about all the programs that have been a part of my #10for10 as well as my #MillionDollarPledge. While there, you can see where all the donations went as well as learn more about all these amazing organizations and how you can help contribute. We have work to do, and the only way to get it done is if we all work together.

Before getting across the finish line, he challenged famous pals to donate $10K to an org of their choice and he’ll match it. Dubbing it the 10 for 10 challenge.

Usher heed the call Wednesday and donated $10,000 to Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure Inc., a Georgia-based non-profit that helps single and divorced mom’s adapt to a new life.

I am happy to announce that I have completed my #MillionDollarPledge. For this final #10for10 joining me is, multiple Grammy Award winner, singer, songwriter and hitmaker…My brother @usher! He is donating $10k to match my $10k for $20k going towards H.O.M.E from Lithonia, Georgia. H.O.M.E. stands for Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure and they provide furniture to single mothers and their mission is to extend love to the home; restore hope in the heart, and offer help through healing hands to single mothers facing hardship. It has been an honor for me to serve the people with my #MillionDollarPledge. The thanks and gratitude from each organization has been immense. Being able to learn and see how each organization used the donations was a key part of the Pledge. I wanted to make sure that every dollar was going towards making real change in our communities. Thank you to everyone who has supported me, matched me and my pledge and most importantly the people. I know that we still have a lot of work to do, however, by getting everyone involved, I truly believe that we can all achieve and move mountains towards our goals for Social Justice. Please head over to Kaepernick7.com for a complete list of my $1,000,000 if donations as well as others like my brother, @usher who have matched with their generous donations as well.

Rapper Meek Mill, who is currently incarcerated, donated $10K to Youth Services, Inc, a Philly based charity that supports at risk youth.

Jesse Williams, Steph Curry and Nick Cannon also took part in the #10for10 challenge.

Colin started the one million pledge after opting out of his contract with San Francisco 49ers.

And vows to keep the good works going even without the NFL behind him.

With or without the NFL’s platform, I will continue to work for the people,” he said while picking up the 2017 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award in December, “because my platform is the people.”

Rumble, baby, rumble <<in my Dave Chappelle voice>>>

The Flash’s Candice Patton Launches Online Collective for Women

Y’all are on notice: Shethority is in full effect!

The online women’s collective campaign, launched late last year, is “a positive place for women and the feminine to inspire, empower, and share,” their Twitter bio reads.

Shethority is the brainchild of The Flash’s Candice Patton and her fellow female CW superhero Caty Lotz of Legends of Tomorrow.

The two besties birthed the idea for creating an encouraging platform on a hike in Vancouver.

Candice told E! News it was important to have a meaningful dialogue with fans.

“We were just talking about these conventions we go on a lot, and you know, we meet fans, we sign autographs, we take pictures, and we go home. A lot of our fans are young, they’re women, they’re women of color, and we don’t really get to have a dialogue with them in that medium at a convention. It’s two minutes and they’re ushered on and the next fan comes up. And we saw a desire from them to want to talk about seeing us on screen and the importance of being a woman and empowerment, so we wanted to create a place for young girls, women, and boys to speak on female empowerment.

Shethority’s Instagram is filled with empowering videos about how to handle male-dominated workplaces and boosting confidence and self-esteem.

The campaign has evolved into selling Shethority t-shirts and sweatshirts with the “I Got Your Back” slogan along with the CW actresses faces.

Proceeds of the shirts will go to Girls Inc., a non-profit that promotes mentorship and support for girls 6-18. The remaining funds will go toward growing the Shethority space.

Candice told E! News that she wants to see Shethority grow into an even bigger movement.

“I hope it’s a huge nonprofit. I see mentorship programs where women in successful careers, whether it be film or TV or doctors or lawyers or people in STEM, reaching out to some of these young girls and being able to mentor them through Facetime or emails or short texts.”

Talk about wonder woman.

Rapper Lil Jon Opens Second School in Ghana

Whaaattt?

Lil Jon aka school master J (I made that up, btw) broke ground last month on his second school in Ghana.

The “Turn Down For What” rapper teamed up with Pencils of Promise charity–whose mission is to “provide educational tools to kids around the world”–to fund the West African primary schools.

Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School is the second school under the crunk rapper’s belt, and will enroll 313 children.

Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten, also in the Mafi Atitekpo village, opened last October in honor of his late mother.

Lil Jon donated $70,000 to build both schools.

Because he saw a community in need when visiting last year. Telling CNN this:

“When I saw the conditions where these children were trying to learn, one community they had a big mango tree and two classes were sitting under the mango tree and that’s not a condition conducive with learning,” he told CNN. “Kids are going to get distracted, plus it’s extremely hot. It compelled me to want to do more.

The Grammy winner admitted having a kid in college also influenced him to open his wallet.

And the promise of a major payback.

“One of these kids could grow up to be a scientist, a lawyer, an astronaut, the president of their country. I could create an environment where all these things could happen.”
