Eminem Raises Over $17,000 For Detroit-Based Charity

He may be Shady, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t generous. According to MLive, Eminem just raised $17,353 for HOPE, a Detroit-based charity that helps families and senior citizens with food, education, and general assistance programs. The ’8 Mile’ rapper used eBay to raise the funds and put up 10 different items for people to bid on, including his limited-edition G-Shock watch and tickets to Em and Rihanna’s sold-out Monster Tour. The bidding concluded on Thursday (May 29) and 100 percent of the proceeds went to HOPE. This certainly isn’t the first time the ‘Rap God’ has used his star power to give back. Last December, Em matched $100,000 in donations raised for Detroit’s Wolverine Human Services. Kristen McCurry, one of the organization’s coordinators, said the money will go a long way. “We are very excited and we are overwhelmed by the generosity from Eminem, The Marshall Mathers Foundation, and people around the world” said McCurry last year. “We know we are going to be able to do a lot of good for our kids.” The HOPE organization hasn’t announced how they will utilize the funds, but it’s safe to say the organizers are happy with Eminem’s level of altruism.
