HOV the god stay donating

NEW YORK — Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jay-Z have pledged $1 million to the American Red Cross to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The two rappers announced their donation Thursday, saying they hoped to inspire others, especially blacks, to give.
“This is our community,” Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter told The a.ssociated Press by phone. “When I turn on CNN, I see a lot of black people on the streets. I know it’s other people too, but those projects have been hit hard.”
Combs agrees. “We are all descendants from each other’s families. When you hear black people say ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters,’ it’s really true. These are all people that I know I’m related to somehow, some way — the human race family.”
Former New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial, now president of the Urban League, said Thursday that those left in the city “are people who are African-American mostly but not completely, and people who were of little or limited economic means. They are the folks, we’ve got to get them out of there.”
Jay-Z said he had put in calls to NBA star LeBron James and rapper Kanye West for donations.

Nice to see he's giving back to a place where he was born...Compton...
This is not "giving back". This is a publicity stunt and an attempt to repair his tarnished image. Giving away sneakers, please.

A "pledge" once paid is a tax right off, celebs do it all the time

they donated 500,000 each and wrote it off in taxes

It makes good business sense to do it

They get some free publicity out of it, and that "shot of them holding a check", its a win win situation

Every living celeb worth millions do it, some simply don't brag about it, you have to try and get as much of ur $$$$ written off as possible, or the tax man takes more than his fair share

Nationwide (May 14, 2013) -- The Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund (SCSF) provides individual grants ranging from $1,500 to $2,500 to every student who qualifies and reapplies yearly, from admission to graduation. The grant can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books, lab fees, travel and select costs of living. All Shawn Carter Scholars are required to "give back" by conducting community service and by serving as mentors to younger, aspiring Shawn Carter Scholars.

All high school seniors, undergraduate (2-year or 4-year) college students, and students at vocational or trade schools are eligible to apply. All applicants must be US citizens, 25 years old or younger, and have a minimum GPA of 2.0.

The program attracts candidates from all backgrounds, nation-wide. They all have a compelling desire to pursue higher education, in spite of many personal, socio-economic setbacks, including teen pregnancy, former incarceration, interrupted schooling, and homelessness. They are hardworking, resilient and determined individuals who want to make positive contributions to their local and global communities, and they turn to the SCSF to make their ambitions and dreams possible.

Founded in 2002 by Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) and his mom Gloria Carter, the foundation has since then given scholarships to over 750 students, totaling over $1.3 million dollars.

@ ya'll thinking that giving back the -way that these cats do is something huge...

call me cynical, but i'd be willing to bet most of it was for tax write off purposes...

they can say that "X amount of my income was donated to charities/foundations", therefore they get tax breaks...

....some of ya'll still don't know how these rich a.ss people stay rich... they know how to play the game...
