Compton rapper, The Game, is recently making miracles happen with his newly launched 'Robin Hood Project'.
On Monday night, the rapper and his charity foundation hosted a bowling night at Studio City’s Pinz, with celebrities in attendance the event raised $6,636 for 4-year-old Aaliyah, whose mom, Brittney Nickerson, died in a car accident in Los Angeles last week.
Explaining what inspired the project and how he chooses beneficiaries the rapper had this to say;
"I met a kid in Australia from Nigeria. His name was John. And if I met him anywhere in the United States, I would’ve had enough money on me to help him the way I would’ve thought he needed help. But I only had $20 in Australia on me. He told me about his family’s plight and how much it took for him and his family to get to Australia and he said it was like 20 people living in a one-bedroom apartment. So I gave him the $20 and for the next week I couldn’t sleep. So I came up with the idea for the Robin Hood Project and ever since I met John, I’ve donated $170,000 of my own money just to people. It doesn’t matter.
"There is no certain thing I donate to. If I hear a story or see something on the news, I feel compelled to reach out via Instagram or Twitter and go directly to the source. And I just give money to the parents or the family or like that and keep it rolling.
The Game took to instagram to share photos of the little girl and the accomplishments of the event, along with this caption;
"This is Aaliyah, the 4 year old daughter of @brittneybliss who died in a car crash last week along with two of her friends. Aaliyah made this box for her mother & we were able to collect $6,636 dollars at #TheRobinHoodProject Charity Bowling event last night. I really appreciate all of you who came out, supported & donated for the cause. This baby will never see her mommy again & that alone just rips my heart out being that her & my daughter are around the same age & I couldn’t begin to imagine how that would effect her. Follow @therobinhoodproject to join in & keep up with things in doing to help those in need when I can.
