(AllHipHop News) Rapper/actor Romeo has announced plans to host a free concert at Six Flags Magic Mountain in order to collect books for schools being rebuilt for students in Haiti.
Romeo and The College Boyys have teamed with I Heart Haiti Kids and Six Flags Friends, the philanthropic arm of Six Flags for the concert. Fans can bring 2 books to Six Flags Magic Mountain, which is located in Los Angeles.
In addition to receiving discounted admission to the theme park, Romeo, The College Boyys, Kyla Pratt and others will perform at the theme park.
“We are focusing on the importance of education and helping devastated Haiti kids through their recovery process to receive a basic education, Romeo told AllHipHop.com. In the U.S., a basic education is a necessity but in poor countries like Haiti, its a luxury. Every kid, no matter how poor, deserves a basic education. Our mission is to give Haiti kids a chance at a good start. By our team effort and our kids getting involved and doing their part, we are touching the hearts of a nation of kids that have lost so much.
Romeo stated he realized it was a challenging, time consuming process, but he would continue to campaign and call on his celebrity friends to assist him in rebuilding schools throughout Haiti.
By donating and recycling books we are giving Haiti kids the opportunity to read, stimulate their imagination, hope, and dream, envision, and prepare for their future, Romeo noted. Im also reaching out to my other celebrity friends such as Jaden Smith, Miley Cyrus, Justin Beiber, Keke Palmer, Jonas Brothers, and Nick Cannon to help join in on this movement.
Romeos free concert at Six Flags Magic Mountain takes place on Saturday, February 27.
