Jay-Z’s Mother Honored for Charity Work

jay1.jpgJay-Z’s mother, Gloria Carter, was honored at City Hall in New York City today for her work with the Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund, which she oversees. The organization, which was founded in 2003, helps disadvantaged individuals obtain higher education and provides mentoring programs and other services. Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Ms. Carter traveled with others to Houston to distribute clothing, food and toiletries to displaced New Orleans residents. According to the Associated Press, Queens Councilman Thomas White Jr. sponsored the ceremony and presented her with the framed proclamation before Wednesday’s City Council meeting. Jay was on hand for the ceremony and told reporters that he was “very proud” of his mother as they left the building.

    Nothing is worst when ignorant people have a keyboard in front of them. The people who are typing stupid shit and you know who you are need to quit because when you talk/write alot of shit and not doing anything to contribute show the lack of brain cell you do have. Damn Shme you are one of the few people I agreed with on how people act.
