The Game vows to give away $1 million to the poor
Rapper and humanitarian The Game has vowed to give away $1 million of his own money by Christmas to help those in need.
The "Dreams" hitmaker came up with the selfless plan on the morning of Sept. 10 while on tour in Australia, and he has since started a new Instagram photo blog to document his acts of generosity, which he has branded "The Robin Hood Project."
On the page, The Game reveals that he has taken to handing out cash to those he meets on his travels, and he has shared a series of pictures of his generous moments online.
Explaining his motive for the charity drive, he writes, "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 (sic) 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.
"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 (sic) possible but I've set my heart on trying!!! I've created a new account specifically for those who would like to FOLLOW @therobinhoodproject & support me on this journey."
The Game is known for his acts of kindness. He left a $6,000 tip for a waiter after dining out on Easter Sunday.
