While most of us were feeding our faces with Cajun Turkey (I plead the fifth), T.I. was over at Turner Field on Thanksgiving Day assisting Hosea William’s Feed The Hungry Foundation. The event attracted nearly 22,000 needy Atlantans and fed all with no problems due to the generosity of several well known ATLiens. Tip was commended in raising nearly $100,000 within two hours on a local radio show Wednesday evening and Young Jeezy, was said to have donated $5,000 towards the event.
“I shouldn’t be but I’m amazed by their giving,” said Omilami, daughter of the late Hosea Williams. “I’ve been doing this for 39 years but I’ve never seen a year like this one in terms of donations.” (Source)
I just really wanted to come and show my support for yet another year of excellent service to those who need help such as those who are here today. All of us are supposed to be giving thanks for all the things that we have and I just want to come and support in whatever way I can and do my part and I hope that..you know.. I can ensure that everyone, or at least as many people as possible, can have a happy, safe and memorable Thanksgiving. So, I thank all of you for helping me support such a worthy cause and such a prestigious organization.
