21 Savage is the latest hip-hop star to get his own holiday!
His Leading By Example Foundation held their Grant-A-Wish event in Stone Mountain, Ga, and 21 invited 100 parents and kids for wrapped gifts and food. State Representative Billy Mitchell would attend and honor Savage declaring December 21 as "21 Savage Day."
Mitchell cited 21 Savage's help of children in his community over years, the holiday event, and providing access to education.
“Financial literacy is important because that’s one of the main things that you need to operate and be successful as an adult," 21 said. "I just wanted to come up with something that could kids have some understanding of what to do with that money.”
Latto, received the key to her city. Former Georgia State Representative, Stacey Abrams presented Latto with the key to Clayton County, after her second annual holiday drive; “Christmas in Clayco”. Latto's donation featured a Christmas dinner, gifts and necessities for 500 families, TVs, bikes, toy cars and turkeys.
“Our kids love her, the commissioners love her, and this is a collaboration that has been great for the community and for the children in Clayton County Public Schools. I want them to see the spirit of giving. When you give, it reciprocates back to you. What we tell our kids in Clayton County is that you can go and be anything you want to be, and Latto is a great example of that,” Clayton County commissioner Alieka Anderson said.
December 18th date is now officially recognized as “Latto Day”.
Happy Latto Day everybody!
