Diddy Hits Kids Fashion Week & Donates $250K to Teen Entrepreneur Group
When it comes to Diddy, this past weekend was all about the kids. If the Bad Boy CEO wasn’t playing daddy, watching his girls hit the runway for Kids Fashion Week he was busy donating a quarter million dollars to help teens who are practicing to get into business.
To get the weekend started, Puff took to the streets of NYC to watch his daughters, D’Lila, Jessie and Chance, hit the runway for Swarovski and Ooh! La, La! during Kids Fashion Week in NYC, according to theybf.com. The Combs’ girls-strutted their stuff as their family sat front row to watch (moms Kim Porter and Sarah Chapman, grandmother Janice Combs, and their brother Quincy).
And as any proud father would do, Diddy took to Twitter to celebrate how proud he was to watch his girls end the day flawlessly, saying, “Words can’t explain how proud I am of my young ladies! There’s no greater feeling.”
But before the New York mogul could bring an end to his time with the kids the weekend, he found himself standing center stage at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge yesterday (Oct. 6), donating $250,000 to The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).
While the NFTE, which provides “programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, to recognize business opportunities and to plan for successful futures,” was grateful for Diddy’s philanthropy, it was the The Challenge’s four finalists, Juny Nguyen, Jesus Fernandez, Dagim Girma and Toheeb Okenla, who felt most thankful at the end of the day after receiving a coaching session from the multimillion dollar businessman.
