GOOD DEEDS: NAS RAISES MONEY TO HELP A D.C. SINGLE FATHER OF 8 FIND A HOME





It's good to know that there are still some awesome people out here in this sometimes cruel "cold world, [with] no snuggie." And sometimes these awesome people can be your favorite rapper!

Grammy nominated rapper Nas bin Olu Dara (tried to tell y'all he's my fav) Jones was so touched after learning about a District area man, Stanley Young's unfortunate story that Nas was not only moved to donate money but he also started a Crowdtilt fundraising page where others, like you and me can donate to assist the Young family.




Stanley Young of the District of Columbia is an unemployed father of 8 children and a recent widower. And just when it seemed like life couldn't any worse for the Young family, they recently lost their home in a fire and are now just days away from being homeless.

The Youngs have been living in a hotel since a fire destroyed their residence but now they must vacate the hotel by August 13, 2013.

Trying to secure a home has been particularly problematic for Stanley because he is unemployed and it has been very difficult to find temporary housing willing to accommodate him and his 8 children.




Nas has already donated $10,000 towards helping Stanley Young and his family. The goal is to raise $50,000 on or before August 17, 2013 to assist the Young family in either extending their stay at a hotel and/or to put towards a down payment on a new home
`Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee? Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.' Matthew 25: 44-45
So what are you Chicks and Dicks waiting for, get to donating...please and thank you!
