Chance The Rapper Teams Up With Google To Help Kids In Chicago

Chance the Rapper surprised a class full of fifth-graders at a South Shore school Wednesday, when he crashed their coding class to give the students some pretty insane news. The rapper stood with executives from Google’s charitable arm to announce a $1.5 million donation to Chicago Public Schools and Chance’s arts education nonprofit.

The chicago-born rapper has been giving back to his community for as long as he’s been in the spotlight, and the public school system has benefitted a lot from the philanthropist. It’s the second time in the last couple of weeks that Chance has used a school visit to announce a large donation–Following appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Chance made a surprise appearance at Clark High School, where Jewel-Osco made a generous $1 million donation to his arts education fund, the New Chance Arts & Literature Fund.

Since March, Mr. Bennett has raised $2.5 million for CPS and has donated $1 million to 20 schools for arts education programs. CPS has pledged to bring computer science education to all schools from kindergarten to 12th grade within the next decade.

Good on you, Chano!
