Big Sean is pitching in to help solve the Flint water crisis.
The Detroit rapper and his non-profit, the Sean Anderson Foundation, have partnered with CrowdRise to launch the #HealFlintsKids campaign to help families with kids who have been exposed to toxic water in Flint, Mich. The viral fundraiser aims to raise money for the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan (CFOGFM).
To kick things off, Sean has made a personal donation of $10,000, which will benefit CFOGFM’s “Flint Child Health & Development Fund.”
“I am devastated by the water crisis that has put the entire city of Flint in a state of emergency,” said Sean in a statement. “In recognizing the great work that the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan has been doing, it is my hope we can help by raising the money needed to ensure that the children who have been hit the hardest receive the care that they need today and well into the future.”
Donors who pledge $10 or more will be entered to win a pair of VIP tickets to one of Sean’s U.S. concerts and a meet and greet. The campaign will end on April 30. To donate, click here.
Sean isn’t the only rapper pitching in to help Flint. Meek Mill donated 60,000 bottles of water to Flint residents and challenged his rival 50 Cent to do the same.
