Fabolous and Baron Davis temporarily combined their charities to spread good vibes to thousands of children this holiday season. The Black Santa Company and A Fabolous Way Foundation got together to raise more than $30,000 in presents.
Other celebrities came out to support, including The Lox, and New York Jets cornerback, Darrelle Revis. B. Diddy got on the mic to say a few words about his foundation and the event, which was held at The Chester NYC.
“Black Santa’s mission is to celebrate diversity, the joy of giving and the magic of good. He’s here to bring people together and have fun,” Davis said. “We hope he and other characters being created will kindle good spirit and giving regardless of the time of the year.”
The Brooklyn artist also chimed in about giving back to the community by “making someone’s holiday a lot more fortunate this year. At least in the future it plants the seed and hopefully a kid, when they grow up, will do the same thing and give back to more kids.”
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Edwin Gould Services for Children and Families. For more information about the celebrities’ respective foundations, visit Blacksanta.com and AFabolousWay.org.
