(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper CeeLo Green and his sister Shedonna Alexander have teamed up to create The GreenHouse Foundation, a new non-profit organization.
CeeLo Green and his sister’s new non-profit will focus on making green education more accessible to students in underserved areas around the country.
The siblings will launch The GreenHouse Foundation on August 17 at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, also a GreenHouse School Partner, where CeeLo attended elementary school.
The first initiative is the “Green Garden Education Program,” which allows schools to become “GreenHouse School Partners.”
“The Green Garden program will use outdoor gardening as an innovative tool to teach math and science. It will allow students to experience a new approach to “green education,” stated co-founder Shedonna Alexander. “We are committed to the mission to empower children with the knowledge, attitude and desire to positively influence their futures, their communities and the long-term sustainability of their planet.”
The GreenHouse Foundation is scheduled to launch on August 17 in Atlanta, Georgia, during a ceremony dedicated their late mother Sheila J. Callaway Tyler.
Confirmed guests include CeeLo Green, Shedonna Alexander, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed Goodie Mob and a performance by legendary Jazz singer Kathleen Bertrand.
