As his star grows brighter, Stalley is giving back to the community. Lending his heavily-tatted hand to the Scholarich Foundation, the MMG rapper will be performing at the New York non-profit’s December book-drive/fundraiser in Brooklyn, according to AllHipHop. Co-sponsored by The Source, the goal is simple enough: helping the Foundation gather as many resources as possible to help underprivileged school kids.
I work in Watts, for an education-based nonprofit. I have seen firsthand how important – and, sadly, overlooked – resources like books, pens and pencils are. Without getting too preachy: attend this event if you are in the New York region. Donate as many school supplies as you possibly can to great foundations like ChildFund.org. A shiny, stocked backpack can make a major difference to a kid in need.
Oh, and support Stalley while you’re at it. But that kind of goes without saying.
