Rick Ross, Waka Flocka Help Kids Go Back to School


Their lyrics may detail servicing the community in a different way, but rappers Rick Ross and Waka Flocka Flame are planning on using their fame for good. The two are joining forces for the 3rd Annual Rick Ross Be Out Day in Miami this Wed., Aug. 4, to help support at-risk youth and encourage them to keep out of trouble.

Rick Ross Charities and the City of North Miami Office’s City Clerk Alix Desulme will host the event, taking place at the North Miami Athletic Stadium. Presented by The Children’s Trust and The Urban League of Greater Miami, the day is meant to encourage students to get back to school, providing them with free supplies, backpacks, food, drinks and other materials.

“We’re proud of celebrities like Rick Ross who understand we all have to do our part to assist in providing much needed resources to the children of our community,” Desulme said in a statement.

Rick Ross Charities was established in December 2008 to improve the quality of life for children. The organization has served over 3,500 young folk by providing school supplies and health screenings. Most recently, the charity hosted a blood drive in Miami to help aid Haiti following the earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince earlier this January.
