"Growing up in poverty made me realize that most crimes are
committed during Thanksgiving and Christmas, Master P. told
AllHipHop.com. Not only will we feed and clothe one million but also
we can help prevent a lot of those in need from committing crimes like
robbing and stealing the food or gifts they can't afford during the
holidays. Our mission is to bring hope to families by offering programs
that help educate and rehabilitate families back into society.
In addition to donating his time and money, Master P. is also
attempting to get his celebrity friends involved in the cause for the
Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
Even with the current downfall of the economy, each one of us can
help make a difference by volunteering or donating, Master P.
reasoned. I'm also reaching out personally to corporations,
entrepreneurs, pro-athletes, entertainers, churches, foundations, radio
stations, online media, TV stations, Oprah, Dr.Phil, and others that
can help bring awareness to this great cause.

charitable and helping those in need has given me a profound happiness
in my life, as there is nothing more rewarding than bringing smiles to
children who are less fortunate, Master P. stated.
OneMillionGifts.org specializes in these areas. Therefore, I'm honored
to be a part of this team."
