MOTHERHOOD IS A GIFT!
IN LOVING MEMORY OF OUT BOOGIEBOO!
Nas is putting his money where his mouth is -- by helping a single father whose home burned to the ground.
While visiting Washington, D.C this week, Nas happened to catch a news report on Stanley Young -- an unemployed single father of seven who was left homeless after a fire burned down their apartment. The children's mother passed away last year. Nas was moved by the family's story and decided to launch a online fundraiser on Crowdtilt to raise $20,000 to help the Youngs. He's already pulled in more than $17,000.
Nas says, "I am also a single father, and we don't get enough credit in this country... I believe and hope that we should all, as a community, come together to help our fellow American men and women when they need us in desperate situations like this"
Young says he’s working with the Red Cross, the District of Columbia Office of the Tenant Advocate, his family and his church, hoping they'll find something. The family must vacate their hotel by August 13th.
