MTV hearts Kevin Hart for his hilar commentary at the Video Music Awards, and now it sounds like the comedian’s hometown of Philadelphia is about to heart Kevin, too!
Making people laugh has earned Kevin some serious money, and he’s giving a big donation to Philly schools.
Kevin shared his scholastic announcement with a vid on Instagram:
Philadelphia has seen major budget cuts to education, and that’s no laughing matter. Two dozen schools in the Philadelphia School District have been shut down due to lack of funding, and thousands of educators have lost their jobs. Recently, a Philadelphia student's death brought about speculation that it might have been avoided if the school could have afforded to always have a nurse on site.
“Philadelphia, aka the City of Brotherly Love," Kevin said in his vid. "I just heard about all the trouble the school district is going through. So I took it upon myself to take $250,000 and put it in the school system to buy new computers. Not because somebody told me to, because I love you, and I put on for my city.”
If you didn't think it was possible for Kevin to get serious, well, here’s your proof he can. He also said, “My city made me who I am today, and for that I am thankful. I will make it my priority to help my city get out of this debt.”
It’s great to see the City of Brotherly Love get so much love to help its future generations!
