Tekashi 6ix9ine attempted to do a good deed by donating $200,000 to the non-profit No Kid Hungry. According to TMZ, the money came from new merch and the $2 million he earned off his record-breaking comeback video for “GOOBA.”
“During this pandemic I understand we have nurses and frontline Hero’s who risk there life daily to save others. But NEVER forget the children & families who depend on OUR PUBLIC schools for daily meals and nutritions to keep our future leaders growing to their best potential,” 6ix9ine wrote in an Instagram post. “To every influencer out there REMEMBER if you are blessed GOD gave you that blessing not just for YOU but also TO HELP OTHERS 🙌🏼 GOD FIRST.”
The organization has however declined 6ix9ine’s donation.
“We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez’s generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation,” Washburn said. “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
