Ludacris Builds Playground for Elementary School
Ludacris has spent the past two months traveling door-to-door in an effort to emphasize the importance of the U.S. Census, and with one mission completed, the Atlanta rapper has moved onto his next philanthropic endeavor.
The Ludacris Foundation teamed up with the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s (EIF) iParticipate and United Healthcare’s ‘Do Good. Live Well.’ campaign to construct a new playground for the Venetian Hills Elementary School in Atlanta, this past weekend. The three foundations provided support to KaBoom, a national nonprofit organization which focuses on providing play spaces for children.
Ludacris — a long-time supporter of youth advocate programs — joined over 100 volunteers to build the new playground, the school’s first in the past 15 years. His involvement in the project is part of a larger effort to promote volunteer work. Luda has teamed up with iParticipate for an upcoming campaign to promote community service. The campaign will premiere on October 19, as a week-long TV series which documents the work celebrities are doing to contribute to their communities.
