ABC/Kevin MazurLast month, Big Sean made a personal donation of $10,000 after partnering with CrowdRise to launch #HealFlintKids, a campaign that helps families with kids who have been exposed to contaminated water in Flint, Michigan. Now, the partnership has reached an impressive amount in donations.
The rapper’s Sean Anderson Foundation announced that its #HealFlintsKids campaign has raised more than $50,000 thanks to contributions from others, including DJ Mustard, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins and comedian Hannibal Buress. As of Thursday afternoon, the organization had raises $58,209 for the Flint Child Health & Development Fund as a part of a viral fundraiser with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan.
The rapper is still looking for more people to get involved from now until April 30. To donate, head to CrowdRise.com for information. Those who pledge $10 or more will be entered to win a pair of VIP tickets to one of Sean’s U.S. concerts and attend a meet-and-greet.
So far, Aretha Franklin, Puff Daddy, Eminem, The Game, Meek Mill, Cher and Madonna are among the celebrities who have made considerable donations to help those who have been exposed to contaminated water in the Flint area.
