Some of the biggest names in the rap game are giving back in a beautiful way.
Fans of The Game have been following the rapper's journey on Instagram as he participates in The Robin Hood Project, where he's vowed to donate a total of $1 million of his own money to those in need before Christmas, and his latest gracious giveaway got the attention of fellow artist Drake, who joined Game in giving an Ohio woman a total of $22,500.
"Meet Ana Angel, a mother of 5 who lost her 5 children & her boyfriend (father of her youngest) in a house fire early Sunday morning in Tiffin, Ohio," Game wrote with his Instagram post. "I can deal with a lot of things but people losing their children is something that kills me every time. Ana Angel was working her shift at Burger King when she was informed by her manager Pat Boes that her home had burnt down with her family inside it & no one survived."
He continued, "I cannot imagine the feeling she had at that moment & when I 1st read this story yesterday I just happened to be on the phone with DRAKE @champagnepapi & told him about it so he offered to help alongside me........ So between me & DRAKE on behalf of @TheRobinHoodProject we split a $20,000 donation both donating 10k apiece as well as @51minds (Marrying The Game producers) choppin in with $2,500 so that Ms. Angel can afford the funeral costs for her 5 children & boyfriend as well as a point A to B vehicle."
Drizzy also posted Ana's story on his Instagram, and added, "What @thedocumentary is doing will never be forgotten. Honored to be able to help people along side my brother."
Game launched the project last week while on tour in Australia. He wrote, "The other day I posted this pic of an African child I met in Australia playing outside the grocery store. His story of his families hardships & struggles to get away from the terror they left behind touched me so I gave him what I had on me… Which was an Australian $20 bill."
Apparently, the rapper was not happy that he wasn't able to give the child more money, and the unsettling feeling is what sparked the idea for The Robin Hood Project.
"As the days passed, I thought about him over & over & over & the only thing that bothered me about that night was that I didn't have more on me to give him at that time. For some reason I just didn't bring more money from the hotel. Since I can't shake that feeling…
"I have decided to give $1,000,000 to people I come in contact with around the world everyday until Christmas. Don't even know if thats possible but I've set my heart on trying!!! I've created a new account specifically for those who would like to Follow @therobinhoodproject & support me on this journey."
So far, Game has donated money to 14 people, equaling a total $21,920. Only $978,080 to go.
