Artist The Game was recently named the 2014 “Humanitarian of the Year,” during the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studios 25th annual “Talk Of The Town Black Tie Gala.”
Held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the Compton emcee received the award in recognition of his many contributions via “The Robin Hood Project,” a charitable organization through which he has donated over $1 million in funds.
The rapper used his IG to explain “It all started when I gave one kid from Africa $20. That created @therobinhoodproject & since then I’ve given away over a million dollars of my own money hand to hand & through charitable organizations.” He added, ““I am honored & more than appreciative of #ABC for this ‘Humanitarian Of The Year’ award,” he added. “I was just a poor kid from Compton…. Never thought in a million years I’d have even an extra dollar to giveaway let alone a million. #Humbled.”
