Eminem Promises to Match $100,000 Donation to Michigan Charity
Eminem is making a big promise. Through his Marshall Mathers Foundation, the lauded rapper will match all donations up to $100,000 given to Wolverine Human Services on Dec. 3 — also known as “Giving Tuesday.”
“Giving Tuesday” was created in 2012, as a national day of charitable giving. Fans have until midnight to donate money to the Wolverine Human Services, a non-profit organization dedicated to help at-risk youth and families.
According to MLive, Wolverine Human Services has recieved over $51,000 in donations, so far.
“We are very excited and we are overwhelmed by the generosity from Eminem, The Marshall Mathers Foundation and people around the world,” said Kristen McCurry, the organization’s development coordinator. “We know we are going to be able to do a lot of good for our kids.”
For those who donated $10 or more at CrowdRise, they’ll be entered to win a chance of nine autographed prizes from Eminem. Prizes include an autographed PS4 with Call of Duty Ghosts, a signed copy of Call of Duty Ghosts and a signed copy of ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2.’
Props to Eminem for giving back to his hometown of Detroit.
