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. 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
“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,” said Laura Washburn, the director of strategic communications. “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
It appears that the No Kid Hungry Foundation believes in the “not all money is good money” saying.
Tekashi claps back at the No Kid Hungry upon learning his donation was rejected, and he’s making what some might consider a valid point.
The rapper writes, “@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel.”
Although its commendable that No Kid Hungry is standing firm on their principles. However, others could equally argue back that money is money, and if the guy wants to spend it over a bunch for a good cause … why not just take it?
