The Game Pays For A Little Girl's Funeral + Giving Away $1 Million To Fans; The Rapper Is Calling It "The Robin Hood Project"
Rapper, The Game, has reportedly gave a Los Angeles family $10,000 to pay for their 6-year-old daughter, Tiana Ricks, who was shot and killed, funeral expenses.
The Game read about the tragedy and tweeted, "This very sad story hit me in a place nothing ever has ... Tiana did not know she was shot & kept asking was her father okay."The Game has also announced he plans to giveaway $1 million of his own money to people he meets around the world until Christmas. That's a pretty generous thing to do. He's calling it, The Robin Hood Project.
So Game decided he wanted to help -- tracking down Tiana's family and pledging $10k to cover funeral costs.
The other day I posted this pic of an African child I met in Australia playing outside the grocery store. His story of his families hardships & struggles to get away from the terror they left behind touched me so I gave him what I had on me… Which was an Australian $20 bill.
The Game said, “as the days passed, I thought about him over & over & over & the only thing that bothered me about that night was that I didn’t have more on me to give him at that time. For some reason I just didn’t bring more money from the hotel. Since I can’t shake that feeling… I have decided to give $1,000,000 to people I come in contact with around the world everyday until Christmas”. Don’t even know if thats possible but I’ve set my heart on trying!!!It's good to see there are still good people out there, and in his case, good celebrities. I encourage everyone to follow the twitter account he set up for this project, @TheRobinHoodPro
