Detroit rapper Big Sean has donated $10,000 to help families in Flint, and is asking fans to step up to the plate.

Launching the #HEALFLINTKIDS fund-raising campaign today through his Sean Anderson Foundation, the rapper is aiming to benefit the Flint Child Health & Development Fund and its support of those stricken by the city’s lead-water crisis.

Donations to Big Sean’s campaign can be made at crowdrise.com/bigsean. Five donors pledging $10 or more will win pairs of VIP tickets for a Big Sean concert this year.

 

 

Flint’s water supply has been contaminated by lead, causing a health crisis that has reportedly affected the city’s children, who could face long-term effects.

“I am devastated by the water crisis that has put the entire city of Flint in a state of emergency,” Sean said in a release. “In recognizing the great work that the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan has been doing, it is my hope we can help by raising the money needed to ensure that the children who have been hit the hardest receive the care that they need today and well into the future.”

But giving to the fund doesn’t just mean helping a worthy cause — five winners will also win two VIP tickets to Sean’s upcoming tour, plus a meet-and-greet with the G.O.O.D. Music MC.

Big Sean’s Detroit-based foundation is overseen by his mother, Myra Anderson.

Fellow rapper Meek Mill has also stepped up with a Flint donation as promised, according to TMZ: The Philadelphia-born rapper has made a monetary donation to the health fund while also sending 60,000 bottles of water to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
