Big Sean & Meek Mill Serve Up Thanksgiving Cheer

If no one has told you yet, I’ll surely do the honors: Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. Among the many things I’m thankful for is your roaming eyes on my page. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for the comments, likes and other props. It’s deeply appreciated.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday for so many reasons, but if someone pushed me for an explanation it’s because of all the memories produced on the day. One that sticks out the most is the last Thanksgiving with my Nana. The most beautiful brain image EVER!! At the risk of sounding sappy, I think it’s important that everyone have at least one experience like that with their friends and family.

Rappers Meek Mill and Big Sean helped to make it happen by giving back to their communities.

Meek Mill visited his hometown of Philly to kick off his inaugural “Dreamchasers Thanksgiving,” a two day event that aims to feed 600 families around the city of Brotherly love. Philly Mayor Michael Nutter joined Mill and released this statement:

I applaud Meek Mill for taking the initiative to give back to his home town. Gathering together with family and friends around a shared meal is one of the most important aspects of the holiday season. It is important to give thanks for all that we have, and I am proud that one of Philadelphia’s own is donating his time and resources to make sure families in our city can do just that

Meek Mill humbly gave this response on his generosity:

Philly raised me and made me into the man I am today, so to do the first annual ‘A Dreamchaser’s Thanksgiving,’ was an obvious thing to do. I’m blessed to be in a position where I can make sure that as many people as possible have a meal on Thanksgiving, so that they can be with their loved ones to enjoy the holiday.

So inspiring. I’m loving the hearts thrown Philly’s way. Even from lil Kevin.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, eat and be merry XOXO

ATTENTION PHILLY MITCHES: Kevin Hart Has a Public Service Announcement

What Kevin Hart lacks in size (which is just slightly above a second grader’s, j/k) he makes up for with his big heart. The famous comedian put it on display when he donated $250,000 to his hometown of Philly’s public schools, parks and community centers.  Check the video below to hear what made him open his fat wallet.

The money went towards buying 500 computers for schools and community centers in the city of brotherly love. And they surely need it considering that Pennsylvania’s governor recently released $45 million in federal funds to keep Philly schools afloat for the remaining school year. And have been operating with a shortage of school nurses, which was linked to one student’s asthma attack death in a school without a nurse.

Kevin visited four Philly schools today to deliver 300 laptops to students and 200 desktop computers to 27 Philly community centers, the AP reported.

“These computers will allow our students to expand their studies, explore new course material, and prepare for college and careers for years to come,” Superintendent William Hite.

Kevin–attendee of Philly public schools–said giving back was a major priority.

My city made me who I am today and for that I am thankful. I will make it my priority to help my city get out of this debt.

Good job, Kevin.
