Rap feuds are so last millennium! There’s only one thing 50 Cent wants to fight, and it’s hunger! The rapper recently partnered with Feeding America to serve Thanksgiving meals to more than 1,000 New Yorkers impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
And that’s not all! He’s gonna donate 250 meals to the organization for every pair of headphones purchased online through his company SMS Audio. 50 recently sat down with us to chat about why he’s so passionate about ending world hunger and how you can help out, too!
Many people think hunger is something that only affects people in the developing world, but 50 wants us to know that hunger is a world issue — not a third world issue. “More than 1 out of 5 [American] kids are experiencing hunger,” he said. “Kids can’t even learn properly when they can’t actually concentrate ‘cause they’re hungry.” There are two things on Earth that can, without a doubt, make getting my work done impossible: hunger and heartbreak. But while I don’t need a boyfriend to survive, food is a necessity!
Although you may not be able to donate thousands of meals like 50 can, you can donate your time to organizations that help feed the hungry. Take action below to learn more about Feeding America and how you can join 50 in the fight against hunger.
