Rappers Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, left, and Clifford “T.I.” Harris, Jr. are blessed with riches beyond their wildest dreams. They never hesitate to give back to their communities — not only during the holidays, but year ’round.
Rap mogul Ludacris and other big names Atlanta stars will be bowling for charity tonight (Thursday, Aug. 28) at Bowlmor Lanes (formerly 300) conveniently located at 2175 Savoy Drive and I-285. The bowling for charity event kicks off Ludacris’ Annual Luda Day Weekend with proceeds benefitting the youth of Atlanta through the Ludacris Foundation.
Rap mogul Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and his Ludacris Foundation are always busiest around the holidays. Unlike other foundations that give back only during tax season (I SEE YOU, Jay Z), Luda and his mom, Roberta Shields, give back to the community year round.
Rap mogul Chris “Ludacris” Bridges surprised 150 kids at the Thomasville Center of Hope Recreational Center with warm coats, toys, games and arts and crafts yesterday. Thomasville Center of Hope is part of Mayor Kasim Reed‘s initiative to provide children with academics, sports and character-building programs.
“Every child is receiving a toy and coat,” said Luda’s mom Roberta Shields, President of the Ludacris Foundation. “While it’s wonderful to see smiles when they receive the toys, as a parent I am most grateful that through the Ludacris Foundation’s LudaCares Warm Coat [program], we are helping parents keep kids warm this winter.”
Some of you old heads may remember Waka Flocka‘s mom, Debra Antney (not pictured), organized this event for the Ludacris Foundation for years. Target and DTP donated cash and items for the event this year.
