Snoop started a crowdfunding campaign on Tilt to raise $20,000 for the Inner City Urban Development youth football league. Wayne Ford, of Urban Dreams, contacted the rapper about assisting the kids with their needs.
“I know the money raised by this Tilt campaign will provide these Des Moines youth with essential tools for success,” Snoop told THR. “I’ve seen with my own eyes how these programs can change lives. They go beyond the field, it teaches kids skills for life.”
Snoop has already donated $5000 to the campaign. As of yesterday (October 7), the total amount of donations has reached over $6000.
