Rapper-turned-businessman P. Miller, also known as Master P, recently teamed up with OneMillionGifts.org by donating not only his time but also with a generous money donation.
P will be helping the organization in the mission to clothe at least one million of the world’s less fortunate throughout the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons.
“Growing up in poverty made me realize that most crimes are committed during Thanksgiving and Christmas,” P explained. “Not only will we feed and clothe one million, but also we can help prevent a lot of those in need from committing crimes like robbing and stealing the food or gifts they can’t afford during the holidays.
“Our mission is to bring hope to families by offering programs that help educate and rehabilitate families back into society. My personal goal is to get everybody involved. Even with the current downfall of the economy, each one of us can help make a difference by volunteering or donating,” he continued.
The pioneering music executive who founded the highly successful label No Limit Record in the 1990s, says that he’s going to go above and beyond to help the organization meet their goals by reaching out to all the contacts in his Rolodex to get them involved.
“I’m also reaching out personally to corporations, entrepreneurs, pro-athletes, entertainers, churches, foundations, radio stations, online media, TV stations, Oprah, Dr.Phil, and others that can help bring awareness to this great cause,” he said. “Eight years ago, I realized that education saves lives and being charitable and helping those in need has given me a profound happiness in my life, as there is nothing more rewarding than bringing smiles to children who are less fortunate.”
“I’m honored to be a part of this team,” P added.
