Never hear much about monetary donations being declined but I guess “all money isn’t good money” like the saying goes.
Earlier today the “GOOBA” rapper announced he was donating $200K to The Hungry Kids Organization. A popular organization that focuses on ending childhood hunger by helping families who are struggling to feed their children.
“During this pandemic I understand we have nurses and frontline Hero’s who risk there life daily to save others. But NEVER forget the children & families who depend on OUR PUBLIC schools for daily meals and nutritions to keep our future leaders growing to their best potential,” 6ix9ine wrote in an Instagram post. “To every influencer out there REMEMBER if you are blessed GOD gave you that blessing not just for YOU but also TO HELP OTHERS 🙌🏼 GOD FIRST.”
However, Laura Washburn , the Director of Strategic Communications for No Kid Hungry Org., responded with this statement:
“We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez’s generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation,” Washburn said. “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
