Big Sean Responds to Flint Water Crisis
Meek Mill isn’t the only rap artist getting involved in the Flint Water Crisis. Detroit native Big Sean is working to make a difference in the devastating situation as well.
Through his Sean Anderson Foundation and in collaboration with Crowd Rise, the rapper is launching the #HealFlintKids campaign to raise funds and combat the toxic water taking over the city. Proceeds from the campaign will benefit the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan.
Earlier this week, Sean expressed his concern with the matter and shared that he was working toward a way to lend a resourceful hand.
Flint I love you, Im sorry you have to deal with this tragedy! This is a state of emergency n I have been seeing how me n my family can help

In addition, Sean is encouraging his fans and followers to pitch in by sweetening the deal and offering two VIP tickets to meet and take photos with him during his 2016 tour. The incentives range in donation: $10 gains entry to win tickets, $25 gains three entries and $50 gets you seven entries.
Big Sean donated $10,000 to get the campaign going.
As people around the world band together to help families who have suffered from the toxic water, anger is being directed at Michigan Gov. Rick Synder. Synder has since committed to taking steps to repair the city’s water.
