The rapper/doctor dropped off a $133,000 check to the Donda’s House foundation–a non-profit he created to honor his late mom Professor Donda West–this week.
It’s a record amount for the Chicago org that empowers kids to pursue a career in the arts. Let the Yesus church say amen!
Kanye West took a portion from his earnings at the Louis Vuitton Foundation concert shows and donated it to Donda’s House. Awww… it’s like he combined two of his favorite things–fashion and his mama–to make a difference.
The Creative Director of Donda’s House, Che “Rhymefest” Smith, had this to say about the contribution to their coffers.
I really cannot thank Kanye enough for this incredible contribution. His leadership has enabled Donda’s House to grow quickly and impact the lives of over 160 of Chicago’s young people already in short history. This is a great honor and a true tribute to his mother’s legacy, who did so much for young artists.
Why do we hate him again? Someone remind me.
