Nas Launches Fire Victim Fundraiser

image

Nas is like, half man-half amazing. Late last month, D.C. resident Stanley Young and his eight children lost their home to a fire. After learning of the Young’s misfortune, Nas stepped up and launched a donation page for the family. 

His goal is to raise $50,000. You can help the family by contributing here.

This is real. It is me. I’m putting in $5,000 myself. Never done something like this, but I have faith that our American community can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now.

 I know this is just one family out of millions, and we aren’t solving a global problem. But I believe that a happy ending to a story like this can be the beginning of something bigger for our communities. Everyone, if they can, should lend a hand to our fellow man in their times of need. We’ve all been truly blessed, and the least we can do is to pass those blessings forward.

    yeah this is the definition of using fame to help people. dude could easily have paid it himself, but instead, he used his fame and ability to reach out to millions of people to come together and everyone gives a small amount.

    honestly, it is more impressive than just writing a check for 50k because it is bringing an entire group of people together to support a family. either way, the family is going to get the money, but this is a real cool way to help them out and get people involved.

    I salute you NAS…

  • Tbones

    @stinkmeaner, word. u just spoke my mind n its a shame that this world is still filled with morons like @chronic who dont understand the simple noble act of charity which is what Nas has done with this campaign. He could easily have bought the guy a new house and take the glory by himself and brag about it in interviews and music, but instead he chose to involve both the immediate and wider community in this case. Salutes.

    THIS. 10000000% REAL TALK

    Jay Z said he would drive pass the man’s place because his presence is a “charity” & @B Dot would be driving the car for Jay while throwing up the ROC

    Anyway, Nas continues to be everything that hip hop needs & that’s what matters.

    I contributed. There’s only a 2.5% processing fee.
