T.I. Wants To Help Kids With Their Education

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

t.i.To many times we hear about hip-hop/rap artists maybe getting in trouble or going to jail for one reason or another. The media will jump right on it when a hip-hop/rap artists is in trouble. This is for sure.

But check this out readers. How about when these artists do things on the positive tip? Do we hear about it like we hear about when these artists get in trouble? The answer is no. I have saw articles where artists buy Xmas gifts for the needy. Buy turkeys and Thanksgiving dinners for the needy and even buy a car for someone who needs a car to go to work. And much more.

Problem is you have to search for the story. This is unfair ladies and gentlemen.  Rapper and actor T.I. is doing something real positive for the youth we need to know about this readers.

He recently announced a partnership with music streaming service Tidal to launch the “Money Talk With Tip For Education” program. Now though June 15th participants can sign up to raise funding for their projects on spreading education awareness via Crowdrise. Then they can be able to post their Crowdrise projects via social media channels using the hashtag #TIDALXMONEYTALK in order to be considered eligible for the education challenge. This is great what T.I. is doing.

The top five finalists will have the chance to get the amount they raised matched by T.I. and Tidal.¬† Enriching the lives of today’s youth is something the Atlanta native knows all too well. The father of seven says his involvement in the education challenge is an natural extension of his own daily duties at home.

On June 15 Tidal will reveal the five finalists who have raised the most funding on its site. Then on June 22, T.I.and Tidal will announce and will match the donations of the official winner by up to a whopping $250,000 which will be used towards launching the winner’s proposed project.

T.I. does more than this folks. He is making his name known not for not just being a great rapper and being a actor in movies and on t.v. but he is making his name known as a person who cares about inner city youth not just in the ATL but everywhere. This is a good look for T.I.
