There was a time when Chris Brown was known more for his Michael Jackson-eque  dance moves than his girlfriend drama, night club brawls and hit-and-run scandal. But, alas, he still hasn’t given a performance worthy enough to distract us from his behind the scenes antics. Yet, there is no denying his love for the children.

He showed it on Saturday when he took a trip to South Central LA to hand out 1,000 sneakers to students at Crenshaw High School. The event, pegged “We U.S.: Walk Everywhere in Unity’s Shoes ” was to teach kids that “whenever and wherever they walk, we are a united community.”  The event was part of his Unity Campaign that is working with the LA mayor’s office to coordinate an anti-gang initiative.

It correlates with Chris’ anti-violence anthem “They Don’t Know” video released last month. It features haunting background vocals from late singer Aaliyah.

Chris is no stranger to philanthropic endeavors with charitable contributions to Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy, The Jenesse Center and his own charity, Symphonic Love.

Now, if only he can translate his time and energy into love of the youth to other areas of his life, Chris will be making major strides.
