Okay Draya, we see you doing good in the hood…

Draya Michele Donates $5,000 To Compton’s Optimal Christian Academy

Draya Michele is proving that she can do more than show off her banging baaaawdy and peddle skimpy swimsuits by flexing her philanthropy muscles.

The reality star recently took to Compton’s Optimal Christian Academy, a black-owned school, to give a $5,000 donation to repair their dilapidated playground.

She also noted that she previously took “Basketball Wives L.A.” cameras with her to visit the school but the footage never aired.


Via @SoDraya:

Last year around the same time I visited a school in Compton called optimal Christian Academy.

I had the cameras of Basketball Wives come with me to capture it. However, it never made the final cut and never ended up on the actual show.

The purpose of the visit was to establish a school with needs, I could donate to because I was having a big dress sale event and wanted to donate the proceeds.

Due to all the drama that transpired during the season, I decided not to involve the women in what I wanted to be such a positive event and it never happened.

Because I went to the school and told then I was going to help fix up their playground I decided I needed to keep my promise and fulfill it.

Yesterday, I took my own camera and make sure only what was real was captured.

The beautiful students and staff were all there to greet me and it was just amazing

. The playground had holes in the asphalt and needed patching.

My donation was enough to cover it and was so graciously appreciated.

This school is a black-family-owned school and it feels good to be able to help out people like me.

These are the types of businesses that need our support.

Good job Draya!

What do YOU think about her $5,000 donation????
