Media Maven Karen Civil Teams Up With Rapper Lil Wayne To Brighten The Holidays For 500 Students In Haiti
Karen Civil brought seasons greetings to hundreds of deserving children in Haiti over the weekend. The Christmas celebration was a partnership with Live Civil and included sponsors Trukfit, Scholastic Corporation & L’union Suite. During the Live Civil Christmas Giveaway each child was gifted an outfit from Lil Wayne’s Trukfit clothing line and an exclusive Live Civil Thinking Cap from Karen Civil’s partnership with New Era.
Haitian-American professional boxer Andre Berto also surprised the kids by dressing up as Santa Claus and passing out toys! Additionally, Scholastic Corporation, The United States’ largest children’s publishing company, donated a book to each of the 500 children, while Karen Civil did a live reading of her new book, Be You & Live Civil.
“A lot of people tend to forget about those who are less fortunate during the holiday season, not many understand how receiving just one item could bring so much joy to a child’s life, especially if they don’t have the same everyday luxuries that the more fortunate tend to overlook. I’m just grateful to be able to give back to Haiti in any way possible,” said Lil Wayne.
“The Live Civil initiative in Haiti is something that brings me joy! Being able to put a smile on the kids faces during the holidays is a gift within itself,” stated Karen.
Through this event, the help of various notable hip hop celebrities and the Live Civil playground and middle school remodeling in Pétionville within Port-au-Prince, Karen Civil continues to emphasize the importance of literacy, education and fun!
