On his 1992 single “It Was A Good Day,” Ice Cube rapped that his name was on the Goodyear Blimp. Today (January 20), Ice Cube’s name appeared on the Goodyear Blimp as part of a fundraiser for A Place Called Home as it flew over South Central Los Angeles, according to laweekly.com.
Through Crowdtilt, a crowdfunding site, three friends going by the name “Team Good Day Blimp,” pledged to raise $25,000 for A Place Called Hope if Goodyear would participate. Ice Cube also got involved, as did Jimmy Fallon.
According to its website, A Place Called Home works with its “caring staff, supporters and volunteers come together to provide South Central children and teens 8 years old – 21 years old with love, safety, enrichment, training, and opportunities through educational programs,counseling, and mentorship. After-school, weekend, and all-day summer programs and services include tutoring and homework support, as well as a full spectrum of instruction in the arts, athletics, dance and music. “
