50 Cent Writes $3 Million Check to Boost Education in Low-Income Communities

50 Cent seems to spend a lot of time trolling people on social media. It’s either that or he’ll diss one of his enemies, update fans on the show “Power,” or display one of his pricey vehicles.

But on Friday he posted something that didn’t involve a beef, the popular crime drama or a new Rolls-Royce. Instead, he shared a message about donating money to low-income communities.

“I wrote a check today for G-Unity foundation to distribute to other non-profit organizations that focus on academic enrichment in low income areas,” wrote 50 next to a photo of himself writing the actual check. “I feel good about it. Positive vibes.”

The check, which was made out for $3 million, is just the latest effort by 50 to help those in need.
For example, when the rapper started his Street King drink a while back, he bought a meal for a child with the proceeds from every bottle sold. He also did the same with the company SMS Audio and Feeding America years ago with the sale of each set of headphones.

And in 2012 50 traveled to Africa with ABC News reporter Dan Harris to give away one million meals to impoverished countries.

“I’m in Somalia this week to show the world the devastation that is taking place,” he wrote on Facebook back then. “Children going hungry everyday, even dying everyday from hunger. I am going to keep sending through images from out here. I need you to take these photos and re-post to your friends. The world needs to see what is going on.”

With regard to the check for education enrichment, a lot of fans acknowledged the good 50 is doing.
“That’s what’s up. Proud of you, Curtis,” someone wrote using 50’s real name. “Keep pushing, baby.”

“Show ’em you do more than just stunt,” wrote someone else.

Most of the money will go to CEOs. Next time build some infrastructure and hand out the money yourself.

Sorry 50. I hate to inform you, that you should have never written that check to that company unless you got a Check and Balance process in place, to follow the money and you put it in blood/a hard copy that’s where you want it/the to go,The Low-income Communities
will never Seeeee that money. I live in Broward County Schools District, the number 6th Largest School District in the Country. I have been Volunteering for 40+ years as a parent and now a Community Advocate for Students, Parents and Teachers and I’ve send nothing but Lack in Resources, infrastructure , suppressed/unequal Education in our Low-income areas. If you Think I’m telling a lie, do your research and go to our public records/archive and you will See, years ago (60’s) A Billion dollars was given to the Broward District Superintendent & School board for the Black Community Schools to improve our Education and Infrastructure and We never saw the Money. Instead, they began to Starburst us all over the District to the White Schools and use the money for Their Schools. Ahhh, that way, Blacks are using the money, but, at our /Their schools we will Suppress their Education since, ’70. Broward District was sued in the latter 60’s by a Concern Citizens and Won. And according to the Concern Citizens Settlement ordered by the Court, A Diversity CCC Settlement Committee was established. And the last 10 years, I have been sitting on that committee, fighting the Superintendent and School Board Members, but, they continue to deny our Low-income areas their proper funding, they rather shut down our Schools and get rid of our History! Crying! smh. My recommendation is Please, visit the different States, &
different & inter Cities School Districts and you will find us and then find out what they need, then write a Check. Then, follow the money there ALSO!! AMEN. BLESSINGS!

If parents made their children & education a top priority in their homes, set better examples, keep their children close, prepare healthier meals and live clean and healthy lives, children would do so much better.

“The promise of public education is excellence for all. But that promise has seldom been kept for low-income children of color in America. In How the Other Half Learns, teacher and education journalist Robert Pondiscio focuses on Success Academy, the network of controversial charter schools in New York City founded by Eva Moskowitz, who has created something unprecedented in American education: a way for large numbers of engaged and ambitious low-income families of color to get an education for their children that equals and even exceeds what wealthy families take for granted. Her results are astonishing, her methods unorthodox.

Decades of well-intended efforts to improve our schools and close the “achievement gap” have set equity and excellence at war with each other: If you are wealthy, with the means to pay private school tuition or move to an affluent community, you can get your child into an excellent school. But if you are poor and black or brown, you have to settle for “equity” and a lecture–about fairness. About the need to be patient. And about how school choice for you only damages public schools for everyone else.
Thousands of parents have chosen Success Academy, and thousands more sit on waiting lists to get in. But Moskowitz herself admits Success Academy “is not for everyone,” and this raises uncomfortable questions we’d rather not ask, let alone answer: What if the price of giving a first-rate education to children least likely to receive it means acknowledging that you can’t do it for everyone? What if some problems are just too hard for schools alone to solve?”

Lots of students are unmotivated and could care less. During the reign of Barack Obama an amazing occurrence was publicized. Betsy somebody was able to get test scor is s up considerably. How did she do this? In a very unpopular way! She paid the students to do their school work. Unconventional, but it is what works. Just think, the parents would be happier, there would be an incentive and you’d be reaching the kids directly. A part from this, I see very little in the way of a solution. When it comes to money, things happen.
