Last weekend on Septemeber 13th, Hip-Hop Gives Back and Black Celebrity Giving teamed up at Aaron’s Lakewood Ampitheatre for ONE Musicfest to spread the word about the fight against hunger. We collected canned food and monetary donations for the Just Feed ONE campaign. We also had a free photo booth for supporters to take pictures. Check out the pics

Nas has come to the aid of Stanley Young, a DC man, single father of 8 children and an unemployed construction worker after their home was destroyed by fire in late July. The Young family has been forced to live in a hotel since then and were scheduled to be evicted August 13th. Enter God Son and he took on his own to donate $5,000 of his own money to the Young’s. In addition and more impactful was Nas taking to social media and the fundraising site Crwodtilt.com to start a campaign to raise funds for the family. As news spread the campaign quickly reached their initial goal of $20,000. As he had promised Nas donated another $5,000 to the fund himself. As of this update the campaign has raised over $60,000! Visit https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/help-the-young-family/ to make a donation, the Crowdtilt fundraiser runs until August 18th, 2013.
