T.I. is doing all he can to get his positive image back. Ryan Cameron and rapper T.I., members of the urban entertainment community came to the aid of the Hosea Williams Feed The Hungry and Homeless Foundation yesterday (November 20), to save the organization’s 38th annual Thanksgiving dinner.
Cameron and T.I. spearheaded a campaign that raised $166,000 in less than three hours during Cameron’s show yesterday.
The spontaneous pledge came about when two weeks ago, the charity’s Executive Director, Mrs. Elizabeth Omilami informed Cameron that the Hosea Williams Foundation had lost the support of a $150,000 donor.
As a result, the foundation needed assistance in raising funds for their annual Holiday initiatives.
Cameron, who is a major supporter of the charity, organized a conference call that evening between Mrs. Omilami and T.I., who agreed to help.
Yesterday during the Ryan Cameron show, which airs from 2-6pm on V103 (WVEE-FM), the two respected local celebrities called on their celebrity friends for support.
