Who says celebrities are selfish?
While we’ll be busy gobbling up all kinds of food and stuffing our fat faces, these stars are out there making a difference. Everyone from Ludacris to Akon will be doling out Turkeys and goods this holiday season. Maybe this will motivate you to get out to Stewpot or something and do a little good this week. Now, let’s clap for the good samaritans out there.
And if you’re giving back this week, give your plans in the comments.
Master P – Master P has been in Baton Rouge, LA for the last 48 hours giving out meals and turkeys to those in need. He said that only real bosses feed the hood. Right on, brother.
