Grammy winner MC Hammer has announced his support for the Feed The Children organization in combating the recent natural disasters afflicting families in Georgia, the Philippines, American Samoa, and Indonesia.
Hammer made the announcement via Twitter, where he has over 1.5 million followers. In addition, the Oakland native verified gold buyer Cash4Gold as a partner.
Previously, the two joined forces earlier this year for a Super Bowl commercial with the late Ed McMahon, and later organized a food drive for underprivileged families in Stockton, CA.
"I am asking my followers on Twitter to also follow my example and to do their part to help out those involved in these tragedies," Hammer explained. "Thousands of people here at home and abroad are facing a very difficult time, which is why I'm urging everyone to support Feed The Children, a tremendous organization helping to get these victims back on their feet."
Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson applauded Hammers efforts, and stated it was another example of the rapper using his celebrity status to bring attention to a worthwhile cause.
"We're proud to join our friend and three-time Grammy Award-winner MC Hammer in helping the victims of these recent tragedies," Aronson detailed in a prepared statement. "We are honored to back Feed The Children, and we congratulate Hammer for doing so much to bring much-needed attention to their worthy efforts. As the head of a company that is currently expanding internationally, I see this as the first step in making sure our charitable efforts also extend around the globe."
