As TOMS has shown, people are willing to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to this sort of philanthropy. It’s good for the cause and it’s good for 50Cent.
The beauty part is that you can add philanthropy to your musical world too. How about releasing a song where the profits go to charity? How about saving a percentage of sales from an album for charity? How about putting on a show with a specific philanthropic cause at heart? It’s easier to do than you’d think because people like helping other people. Try it out and you too could be a little more like Fiddy.
