Young Jeezy Doing His Part
December 15, 2008 by Tim Saunders
Grammy nominated rapper Young Jeezy has been spreading Christmas cheer over the last week by distributing gifts to needy school children in Georgia.
The artist attended the annual Narvie J Harris elementary school Christmas program in Atlanta on Friday, December 12, to give out presents for the National Lighthouse Foundation – a non-profit organization built on the vision that the nation’s children need to be assisted in different ways. Young Jeezy – whose hits include Soul Survivor, Mr President, and Put On – has become well known for his philanthropic efforts. Last Christmas he spearheaded a weeklong toy drive called Toyz n da Hood that gave away 1,000 toys to 1,000 children at various locations in Macon and Atlanta. He has also organized a clothes and school supplies donation program, a voter registration event, and donated $5,000 to the Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless, a charity fronted by rapper T.I.. He also opened his house to victims of Hurricane Katrina to give them a place to stay.
