Clifford “T.I.” Harris and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris are definitely in the giving spirit this holiday season!
The cute couple recently launched “Give Like A King,” a charity that encourages individuals to give back and get involved in a big way.
For their first project, the “Give Like A King” foundation joined forces with the Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) of Georgia, to provide homeless veterans with housing, food, health care, jobs and mental health counseling.

Standing near the streets of Bankhead, his old stomping grounds, Tip spoke of the importance of taking care of the those who put in service with America’s armed forces, stating:
No veteran should go without the foundational needs of a human being… be it shelter, clothing, nourishment, hygiene products… NO VETERAN who risked his life and his everyday liberties for my own should go without that.
So we have aligned ourselves with people who share in our enthusiasms and we are going to do as much as we have about that.
I don’t have a very very long reach, but I think my reach is just long enough to do more that has been or is being done in this area.
Through funds provided through his foundation, T.I. made sure at least 60 homeless veterans secured housing.
