Game says that his Robin Hood Project has received $500,000 in donations since August, an accomplishment the emcee celebrated with a celebrity bowling event recently. At this event, Game spoke about his charitable efforts.
“The Robin Hood Project is a charity set up by me to give back to the people,” Game says in an interview with MissDimplezTV. “See I figured once you have everything, as a celebrity, once you have money, once you have cars, once you have family, once you have fans, once you’ve been around the world, what else is there to do besides start giving back?
“So I created The Robin Hood Project solely for positivity, giving back and helping people in need, people that are struggling, people that come into hardships in their life,” Game continued. “That’s all me.”
“The Robin Hood Project, I met a kid in Australia from Nigeria his name was John,” said Game. “And I mean if I had met him anywhere in the United States I would have enough money on me to help him the way that I thought he needed help. But I only had $20 in Australia on me. He told me about his family’s plight and how much it took for him and his family to get to Australia. And he said it was 20 people living in a one-bedroom apartment and it was just down the way. So, I gave him the 20 and for the next week I couldn’t sleep…I just wanted to help, you know? I wanted to do more. So, I came up with the idea of The Robin Hood Project. And ever since I met John I’ve donated $170,000 of my own money just to people.”
