T.I. Raises $100,000 For Charity, Gives Back On Thanksgiving

T.I. gave back to the community this past holiday weekend.

The rapper  handed out corn in Atlanta’s biggest Thanksgiving dinner at Turner Field this past Thursday (11/27).

Tip also approximately rose $100,000 within two hours at an ATL radio station the night before. Young Jeezy also chipped in by donating $5,000.  “It’s a pleasure for me to help service those who are definitely in need of the service,” T.I  offered. The charity event was ironically organized by a group called Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless. In related news, Hosea Thomas was convicted of killing Philant Johnson, T.I;.’s former personal assistant in a 2006 shooting in Cincinati. -Bruce Moses

    Here is a dude that knows how to work hard and acomplish goals. Not sure about ya’ll but if I was facing a year in fed prison, I’d be trying to live it up, an probably would be depressed. But this dude just keeps working and accomplishing goals. 100k for charity thats awsome. My hat goes off to him.

    Tip your hat to T.I.! This shows people that you can help your community without going broke by using your celebrity status to mobilize people to help others or for us non-celebrities [99% of us] can help just by volunteering our time to worthy causes. Good to see some good news once and awhile. Positive Black Men are a Dying Breed.

    Damn I see this story has been up for ten hours and no one has thrown salt on dude for doing something good. Just last week everybody was callin him a snitch and shit like he can’t go back to the hood. If he was serving corn then chances are he was in somebody’s hood… doing a little good.
