As if treating fans to movie wasn’t enough, Chance The Rapper has taken a stand and given back to the Chicago Public School Foundation. Today during a press conference at Westcott Elementary in Chicago the rapper announced that he will be donating $1 million to the Chicago School Foundation. According to the Chicago native the meetings with the Gov. of Illinois were “unsuccessful” and “Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positioning” he said.
While making a difference and taking a stand he is also commissioning other companies and corporations to do the same “the check that I donated is a call to action. I’m challenging major companies and corporations Chicago and across the U.S. to donate and take action.”
