R&B star Bruno Mars lends a helping hand to victims of the Flint, MI water crisis.
R&B superstar Bruno Mars is giving back in a substantial way.
During the final leg of his 24K Magic World Tour in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Mars stunned the sellout crowd at the Palace of Auburn Hills by announcing that he would be donating one-million dollars to victims of the Flint Water Crisis.
Mars joins others artists such as Big Sean, DJ Mustard, Eminem, Pusha T and The Game, in ensuring the residents of Flint can gain back access to one of life’s simplest rights.
“I’m very thankful to the Michigan audience for joining me in supporting this cause,” Mars said in a statement. “Ongoing challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it’s important that we don’t forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster. As people, especially as Americans, we need to stand together to make sure something like this never happens in any community ever again.”
Assisted by Live Nation, 31-year-old Mars was able to dedicate proceeds from the Detroit concert to The Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
Per the organization’s mission statement, The Community Foundation of Greater Flint “serves the common good in Genesee County, building a strong community by engaging people in philanthropy and developing the community’s permanent endowment, now and for generations to come.”
