jadakiss

If there was ever a day someone less fortunate needed a coat, it would be today.

And let’s be honest…a sturdy umbrella.

Luckily Jadakiss hit the streets of New York City yesterday to hand out winter coats to the homeless.

On the eve of the Nor’easter, The Lox member rolled up in front of Penn Station with a truck full of coats and clothes.

The ‘Why’ rapper said he wanted to give back to others.

What it's all about….Giving #filthyamerica (it's beautiful)

And even cited his niece for being the brains behind the charitable act.

Whoever is to blame it’s greatly needed.

Santa, take note, my brother. Yes I said brother. Ask about the chocolate Santa come up.

Anyway, he may wanna pull out a pen and pad because Future is giving him a run for his money.

Yesterday, the “Married to the Game” rapper held his fourth annual Winter Wish Land charity and toy drive–through his non-profit, Free Wishes Foundation that encourages kids to dream big.

 

The ATL kiddies sure did. They piled into Atlanta’s Bessie Branham Park where Future hooked up over 1300 dreamers with some Christmas wishes sans the Santa suit. That doesn’t mean he didn’t have elves…err corporate friends/sponsors.

Like Reebok who partnered with Free Wishes by donating 500 pairs of kicks to the cause.

Thank you @reebok #freewishesfoundation #winterwishland

In all 1300 kids walked away with new shoes, coats and toys.

But that’s not all.

Ciara’s baby daddy was all about philanthropy this weekend. Future also attended the UNCF Masked Ball alongside Usher, Tyrese and Jeezy. All three made a gentleman’s pact to donate $25K each to the non-profit supports. Black students journey towards college enrollment.

Future is slaying the giving game this holiday season.

The Golden State Warriors take care of their own.

The players and coaches dug deep into their pockets to pull out some serious coins for the victims’ families of Oakland warehouse fire that killed 36 people on Dec. 2nd.

Players like Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson huddled up with their coach, Steve Kerr to pledge $75,000 to Oakland fire relief efforts.

According to NBA.com the destroyed Oakland warehouse is only a few miles from Warriors home arena.

Draymond Green said: “As a team that calls the Bay Area our home, we are all devastated by this tragedy that took place right in our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with those that have lost their lives, and our sincere condolences go out to their loved ones.”

The Warriors front office also dished out $50,000 to the Oakland Fire Relief Fund.

The Warriors announced their support for Oakland warehouse fire victims on Wednesday before their matchup with Los Angeles Clippers.

The Warriors even created a PSA to offer condolences and gratitude to first responders.

Check out the clip below.

Yet another reason to root for the home team.

Colin Kaepernick Teaches Kids Their Rights at his Oakland Camp

colincamp3

Colin Kaepernick’s fight the power “Know Your Rights” day camp for kids was officially in session Saturday. No afros required.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback schooled over 100 Oakland pre-teens on how to be a responsible adult in the real world. I think even grown ups can learn some lessons from this woke player.

First lesson: know your rights (hence the name of the camp) which in turn can lead to better interactions with police. Hopefully.

Other topics covered–college prep, financial independence and health and nutrition.

Colin–with some help from friends– founded and organized the “Know Your Rights” camp, according to Theybf.

It isn’t shocking given Kaepernick’s silent protest to take a knee during the National Anthem for the country’s racial disparity problem.

So why not teach the kiddies to be just as fearless?

Kaepernick took a page out of the Black Panther Party’s play book; adopting their 10 Rights for his camp kids to follow. He printed them on a t-shirt lest the kids forget.

1. You have the right to be free.

2. You have the right to be healthy.

3. You have the right to be brilliant.

4. You have the right to be safe.

5. You have the right to be loved.

6. You have the right to be courageous

7. You have the right to be alive.

8. You have the right to be trusted.

9. You have the right to be educated.

10. You have the right to know your rights.

“We want to teach you today about financial literacy, how you can pursue higher education, how you can be physically fit and healthy,” said Colin. “We will talk about police brutality, and what to do about it, but we also have lawyers, professors, health and fitness experts, because we want you to be able to live the life of your dreams.”

Colin wants to take his camp beyond the Bay Area, so every kid knows their rights in the country. Assuring the campers:

“This is just the beginning man. What we’ve done here today in Oakland, we want to do all over the country, in cities all over this country, by bringing together local leaders, local activists and local youth, and not only giving them the skills and lessons they need, but we want to show them how much we love and value them.”

Sounds like a plan.

Now we know who the saint is–Christian Keyes.

The Let’s Stay Together star turned his lazy Sunday into day of service. By cleaning out his closets, filling up 10 garbage bags worth of Fall gear for donation to homeless org–My Friend’s House Foundation.

 

Also known as We Feed the Homeless. The LA-based org provides clothes, food and other basics for the homeless.

To earn your halo (Christian has one!) donate your coins here.

The ab-tastic model/actor may also have angel wings because he loves to give back. Especially to his hometown of Flint, Michigan.

 

Last weekend, he hit the hardwood of MSU with Rev Run’s son Diggy Simmons and Cory Hardrict for the 3rd Annual Hoop for Hope celebrity basketball game.

All the proceeds went to helping 1000 families in need and donating two semi trucks of water to the people of Flint, who have had to live with poisoned water since 2014.

Salute to Christian for doing his part to be more of a saint to his community.

MCM | Sean “Diddy” Combs Donates $1 Million to Alma Mater

story_wide-1474620168

Diddy dug into his deep pockets over the weekend, and pulled out lots and lots of Benjamins (I’m talking 10,000 bundles) to donate to Howard University.

The $1 million donation went toward the HBCU’s business school where a scholarship will be set up in the mogul’s name.

The Sean Combs Scholarship Fund ” will help provide life-altering opportunities for our students, particularly at a time when many come to Howard struggling to meet ever-increasing financial needs,” says Howard University President, Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick.

Diddy presented the check to Dr. Frederick during the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour at Verizon Center in D.C. Friday.

“I was blessed to receive a great education from Howard University – one of the best schools in the world – and it helped to fuel my success in business and life. This scholarship will make it possible for the next generation of leaders to pursue their dreams and achieve greatness,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs. “When I delivered the commencement address at Howard, I asked the students ‘Do you know how powerful you are?’ I know that Howard students are intelligent, talented, passionate, and their hard work will shape the future.”

According to Look to the Stars, Howard will start awarding scholarships Fall 2017 to undergrad business students with a 3.0 GPA with a financial need. The lucky recipients will also get a summer internship at Bad Boy Entertainment or Revolt Media.
