Eminem Raised Over $17K For Charity
Eminem has been feeling awful charitable as of late. Earlier this month, Mr. Mathers auctioned off limited edition G-Shock watches and ticket packages to his upcoming Monster Tour on eBay and donated all the money to the Detroit-based charity Focus: HOPE which provides food and basic services for seniors and their families. The auction raised a total of $17,353 for the charity with 606 bids for the items coming in from all across the globe.
This is not the first time Eminem has donated to a Michigan-based charity. Wolverine Human Services–a children’s charity–CEO Judith Wollack reported that the legendary MC has raised or donated a combined $200,000 to the group’s efforts since 2012. “I think Michiganders and Detroiters all love where we live and support what we do to bring out the best in our people and our cities,” said Wollack, who estimates that Eminem gave at least $105,000 to the charity in 2012. “We’re absolutely blown away by the support he’s given.”
