(AllHipHop News) Last week news broke about Flint, MI’s contaminated water supply. Since the initial announcement Hip-Hop has responded with action. Everyone from Meek Mill, to Diddy, to Big Sean, and most recently, Game has responded with a donation of resources for the parched citizens.

Transforming his concern into a blessing, today (Jan. 26), through his personal Instagram account, Game announced that he and Avita Water have teamed up to help with the American tragedy.  After joining forces with The Robin Hood Project, the Left Coast lyricist and Avita Water have vowed to donate $1 M to those in need — with $500,000 coming directly from his own bank account.

While working on tour Game is currently traveling outside of the United States. Multiple factors encouraged Game to demonstrate his generosity. Given that his younger sister’s family resides in the area and a caring compassion helped to solidify his decision to give. He will donate all of the proceeds from his current tour to help Flint’s citizens obtain clean water.

The lengthy IG post went on to specify about how the water will be dispersed. When detailing the anticipated donation Game wrote,”the 1st drop is being made TODAY 1pm eastern time at “Food Bank East Michigan” 2300 Lapeer Road flint Michigan 48503.” He would share more info, “the 1st drop will be 1400 cases of water equaling about 33,000 bottles today & everyday that follows until 1,000,000 bottles of water are dropped !!!!”

Although he applauds the efforts from other celebrities the outspoken wordsmith has summoned his peers to action. “You’re not fooling ANYONE ! I seen @Madonna & @JimmyFallon‘s $10,000 donations… that’s cute, but not nearly enough,” he chastised. “So I challenge both & anyone else in the world to match me & DONATE $1,000,000 in bottled water to Flint, Michigan,” continuing his passionate plea Game then asked, “& we want proof, shipping order receipts, bank wire receipts, pictures etc…No more pretending to give a f**k…”

  • Misleading…the money isn’t from his personal account…its from his foundations account which means he’s basically donating donated money….hey..at least he’s helping

    • Casor_Greener

  • STEPH

    Dope

  • Weedras

    Good on him.. but why these rappers are seem to be using this shit as a means to stunt on each other.. damn shame!

  • paid for by Avita. nice publicity stunt bruh. good try.

    shout out to Avita tho. Smart play for good press.

    • Casor_Greener

      How much you drop?

      • No. How much did YOU drop?

        See, we could do this all day… -_-

      • Casor_Greener

        Not a damn thing, but I ain’t slick dissong those who did

  • Brindle

    if the bottles where all Avita, then Game just riding coat tales…

  • This should be 100% the governments responsibility tho, not a bunch of celebrities looking for good press.

    If you care then do it because you care and do it quietly. We all know that loudmouth shit is just caca.

  • King Kredible

    Why isn’t the state footing the bill? This is ridiculous. Put them all in jail.

    • they’re in crazy debt… You’re right though. Just for the damages they have caused, those idiots! Bless Flint.

  • Frank Yoster

    Great way to promote ur new water bottle Game! Ur freakin gay!

  • Sgt. H. Jennings

    Dope.. No need to twist what he said, done or from who around. Dope that the people of Flint and surrounding areas are getting the help they need. I do agree with all saying the Gov should be taking care of this. I hear there was pledge of $80 million from the Obama Admin. Who knows how that will be allocated and how long it will take to reach those who need it most. Good look Game and Avita. #DopeWater

  • Kinda makes 50 Cent look childish now. I’m just saying….

  • Papi Peligro

    First off I want to salute any body donating anything you don’t have to
    But Why does anybody have to donate anything. Why is there a fund raiser for this. You telling me these Republicans want to nation build in Iraq but your own people have to go through rrd tape. Do y’all know how patraeus was winning the Iraq war. He gave them money to stop fighting. Gave them jobs. Anybody try that here. I mean they looked like rappers when patraeus was dropping off the stacks. All the while using reserve soldiers who were making 25 dollars a day. Game pointing at the wrong people. It’s not celebrities or any rich persons responsibility to fix flint. It’s the government responsibility to to make sure the people innflint have what they need. You need to make it accountable for it.

  • Thanks for pledging thus lowering your taxes.

    Much love to flint. I donated much less, but it was from me, with no stipulations involved. This is a good way to raise awareness and all that. Salute.

  • THISIS50

    nice one game

  • Anthony Mason

    Best news I heard all week. That is good. People saying he did it just for taxes don’t realize he always donates….

  • Q.

    First, hats off to every rapper who sent a dollar towards Flint. It’s interesting though… it seems like more guys from the rap community are giving back than other celebs–it could be just they’re making more noise. Either way, it’s a good look for Hip-Hop. At the end of the day, this is an American crisis, and governmental oversight is primarily responsible. The governor et al. have to be held to account. And everyone should take heed at what’s going on in Michigan…It could be your state NEXT.

  • Markus

    Much respect to Game for helping out and rallying others to do the same. But this is where those challenges must be made to the Michigan and US government to do what’s required for their citizens. This is a crisis and it seems that politicians are more concerned with their precious Iowa caucus then caring about getting fresh water for Flint residents.

    Much respect for Game giving in a situation where we felt he could help. Blessings to you bro
