Def Jam recording artist YG gave back this holiday season by hosting an essay contest to grant fans from the Los Angeles County Group Homes a chance to win a holiday shopping spree with him. He personally filtered through hundreds of submissions to narrow down to 60 lucky recipients. This marks the first of YG’s annual holiday community outreach.
YG knows it’s important to give back to the community that raised him and wants to set a positive example. “My Christmas shopping experience should be a reminder to all to give back. The children were able to be carefree for a day and not have to face his or her reality,” YG said.
We’d love for you to support the cause and post the recap video of this special event. In the video, you’ll see the kids light up from excitement from the opportunity to receive Christmas gifts from their favorite rapper. This was a great effort for YG to inspire others to overcome adversity and more importantly, a great initiative for him to give back to those who need it the most during the season of giving.
