DADDY DO-GOODERS: T.I. AND AKON GIVING BACK THIS THANKSGIVING
Celeb dads T.I., Akon, Big Boi, and Ludacris have teamed up with other celebrities for a Thanksgiving charity effort in Atlanta, Georgia. The rappers made charitable contributions yesterday with turkey giveaways and special deliveries to residencies.
T.I. hosted a turkey giveaway at the Carrie Steele-Pitts Home, where hundreds of needy families and senior citizens received donations. The event was especially significant to senior citizens since many recipients were grandparents raising their grandchildren. T.I. along with his foundation, K.I.N.G., was joined by City Council Member C.T. Martin.
Akon also practiced charity by personally delivering turkeys to 300 Atlanta families in need. The effort was in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta. Akon and his foundation, Konfidence, has faithfully given back to the community during the holidays for four consecutive years. This year, each family received a turkey and side dish for Thanksgiving.
