Drake Donates $50,000 to Miami Women’s Shelter, Buys $50,000 in Groceries for Customers at Supermarket
After Drake's trip to Miami this week, the city is going to have to build a statue of the Toronto rapper on South Beach. For his latest acts of kindness, he donated to a Miami women's shelter and bought groceries for shoppers in a local supermarket.
On Tuesday (Feb. 6), Drizzy gave $50,000 to Lotus House, a Miami homeless shelter for women and children. He wasn't done there. According to TMZ, he also cashed out on games for 140 kids and passed out $150 Target cards to 130 women. The donation from the 6 God will help "nourish bodies, minds and spirits of homeless women and children who are among the most vulnerable in our community," says Lotus House President Constance Collins, who revealed the money will go to the construction of a new shelter.
Drake also stopped by Sabor Tropical supermarket in Miami, where he spent 50 bands on groceries for shoppers, after entering the store and announcing he would pay for every item customers could bag.
All this week, Drake has been running through the M-I-A with his woes and spreading good cheer. On Monday (Feb. 5), he shot his "God's Plan" video at Miami Senior High School. He also donated $25,000 to the school and offered students new uniforms.
The same day, he donated a whopping $50,000 to one University of Miami student to help pay tuition. "Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition," 20-year-old Destiny James wrote as the caption for a photo of herself accepting a huge check from Aubrey.
This morning (Feb. 8), Drake commented on his giving spree on Instagram. "Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time," he captioned a photo of himself. "There’s nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most."
