It's About Community: Nas Raises Over $60,000 for Family Stranded by Fire
Inspired by the story of a single father of 8 who lost everything, Nas used social media as a tool of awareness to help Stanley Young and his family. The rapper launched a campaign on the fundraising site Crowdtilt, which he shared via Facebook and Twitter to help bring attention to the matter.
With his starting donation of $5000, Nas asked his fans to come together as a community to help bring a miracle to the Young family. In less than 24 hours the campaign had already surpassed the initial goal of $25,000. The response from the community was so large that Nas donated an additional $5000 and raised the goal to $50,000 which was met within 48 hours of the campaigns establishment. For those who would like to contribute, there are still four days left in the campaign.
