Hustle Gang leader T.I. is reportedly digging into his pocket to raise over $30,000 to match a TIDAL X Money Talk Education fundraising campaign he launched earlier this year.
According to reports, Tip is matching six finalists’ donations from the education-based fundraising challenge.
TIP ÔÇ£T.I.ÔÇØ Harris and TIDAL are excited to announce that TIP will be matching ALL finalistsÔÇÖ donation amounts in the TIDAL X Money Talk Education Challenge. Contestants submitted proposals for education based fundraisers at https://www.crowdrise.com/TidalXMoneyTalk. More than $46,000 was raised from all 86 submissions, and TIP will be matching funding for the 6 finalists outlined below, adding $35,000 to the donation total!
Back in May, Tip said TIDAL green lighting positive projects like his education initiative cemented a decision to join the entertainment platform.
“It was a collaborative effort ever since we came together upon our consideration in partnering with TIDAL for us to assist each other. I felt that was very important. We just already knew what the intent was to do things that we had like minds about. One of those things is inspiring entrepreneurial initiatives in the community and promoting education. ItÔÇÖs really all about finding the things that are direct associations with the TIDAL brand and my brand and things that we all feel the same about. I think this was the most valiant opportunity to do so. ItÔÇÖs the first of many.” (SOHH)
In early May, the “King of the South” launched his new TIDAL education challenge.
