|Pay It Forward| Nas Raises Money For Single Father Of 8 Kids


Nas is giving back in a major way! After hearing the heart breaking story of a fire that destroyed the Washington, D.C. home of a single father with 8 kids, Nas decided to take action.


In an effort to help Stanley Young and his seven children, Nas has launched a crowd funding campaign to raise $20,000 in order to help the family escape homelessness. Stanley Young, who is an unemployed construction worker is currently staying at a hotel with his children, however, his funds are beginning to deplete while he searches for resources in order to find permanent housing for his family. Since the death of his wife last year things have been tough for the family and the fire has only added to the stress.
Nas has already donated $5,000 himself and promises to add an additional $5,000 if the $20,000 goal is met. Nas believes that:
"I am also a single father, and we don’t get enough credit in this country. I’m committed to helping Stanley and his seven (yes 7!) kids. Moreover, I believe and hope that we should all, as a community, come together to help our fellow American men and women when they need us in desperate situations like this. See if you can’t find a few dollars to help the Youngs get back on their feet with me. We need to raise enough to extend their stay, and maybe even afford a down payment on a new house or something. This is real. It is me. I’m putting in $5,000 myself. Never done something like this, but I have faith that our American community can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now."


The family has to be out of the hotel by August 31st and if enough money is not raised they will be homeless.
