Kanye West Auctions Off Memorabilia for Charity
We haven’t heard much from Kanye West in recent months, but he’s still making headlines, but this time, thankfully, it’s for his good deeds. The Chicago native is auctioning off autographed memorabilia to support his charity, the Kanye West Foundation. Potential buyers can go online to snag some of the rapper’s items including a pair of Air Yeezy‘s and a deluxe edition copy of his ‘Glow in the Dark’ photo book.
As a tribute to his late mother Dr. Donda West, the Kanye West Foundation partners with both schools and community organizations to provide youth with a creative outlet through music production classes. Additionally, in keeping in line with his mother’s commitment and passion for education, the organization also offers academic support programs for students.
West’s mother served as a college professor for several years before retiring to manage her son’s career. She died tragically in 2008 from complications related to a plastic surgery procedure. The 32-year-old has always been vocal about his love for his mother, even pinning the track ‘Hey Mama,’ on his 2005 release ‘Late Registration.’
