Rappers give $22,500
Two rappers have donated $22,500 to a fund for a woman who lost her five children and her boyfriend in a fire Sunday.
Well-known rap artists The Game and Drake contributed to the Anna Angel Fund, a fund started after the deaths of 25-year-old Timothy Fresch and children Tiara M. Angel, Stormie A. Huey, Trinitie B. Huey, Sunshine D. Huey and Domonic A. Fresch.
Pat Boes, manager of Tiffin’s Burger King who has been collecting donations for co-worker Angel, said she received a phone call Tuesday morning from a man who said he was with the Robin Hood Project and wanted to pledge $20,000.
The caller, who identified himself as The Game, said the money was being donated on behalf of him and another rapper, Drake. Boes said he joked that Drake was not as good as him.
Boes said she spoke with The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, about Sunday’s fire. She said he had first asked to talk to Angel during his phone call to the restaurant.
“His heart went out to her after reading the story,” Boes said. “He said he can’t imagine what we’re going through and wanted to know if there was anything else.”
Boes said she told him Angel was in need of nearly everything and that she also wanted to help get Angel a vehicle.
“He said he’d change the amount and give another $2,500 towards a car,” Boes said.
Although a donation had not been confirmed in the Anna Angel Fund as of Tuesday afternoon, Taylor’s instagram page, therobinhoodproject, displayed a picture of Angel’s family with a note below it stating the monetary donation.
According to the page, the Robin Hood Project is a one-man project with a goal of giving away $1 million to people around the world.
Attempts to get comment from the rappers were unsuccessful.
