50 Cent puts his money where his mouth is
50 Cent has pledged to try to feed a billion people suffering from starvation and famine in Africa.
Apparently, every SK Energy Drink sold will result in 1 meal being purchased for those suffering from famine.
Admittedly, I do not know the approximate figures for people affected by famine in Africa, however I am more than sure that the contintent of Africa hosts around 1 billion people. So if this is what he proposes, it’s a very simplistic view to assume that everybody in Africa is poor and starving.
However, charity begins at the home & I’ve been a fan of 50’s philanthropic efforts such as Queens Day and the various charities and bone marrow pledges he has helped fund and sponsor in Queens, so this comes as no surprise to me.
50 even addressed the UN about his partnership with the UN World Food Programme, which reports that he has already provided funds to provide 2.5 million meals.
As long as he’s sincere and theres no GMO products being fed to them, then I support this pledge.
