Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is pledging to use his celebrity status for good with a new project designed to help needy, starving children in Africa.
The rapper announced that for every sale of his energy drink, Street King, he will provide one meal for a child in need. That’s not all, though – to help spread the word, Fiddy will be running a separate promotion where for every like received, he’ll donate an additional meal to needy children. If the Facebook page is “liked” 1 million times in a week, he’ll double that amount to 2 million.
“Every day, families in Africa go without food and water, never knowing when their next meal might be; but we can change that if we all work together. In order to make a difference, every purchase of my new energy shot, Street King, will provide a meal for a child in need,” he wrote in a post on Huffington Post.
“This project is different from anything I’ve done before — it’s not only powered by my own energy, but the SK mission is powered by the energy of my fans. It’s their energy that will provide 1 billion meals to hungry children. These days, we hear a lot about clean energy, and efficiency, but this is about human energy, energy that’s fueling change.”
If you’d like to help out, you can head over to the Street King Facebook page and give it a like and/or pick up a can of Street Kings at your local retailer of choice.
