NAS helped a struggling, unemployed single father with EIGHT KIDS raise more than $60,000 for his family. Here's how it went down:
Last week, Nas saw a story on the local news about a guy named Stanley Young who was forced out of his home by a fire. Stanley is a construction worker, but has been out of work . . . so he and his family were on the verge of becoming HOMELESS.
The story touched Nas, so he started a fundraising campaign on CrowdTilt.com, one of those group-funding sites. Nas started it with $5,000 of his own money, and kicked in another $5,000 once he'd reached his initial $20,000 goal.
In his description for the campaign on the site, Nas said, quote, "I'm also a single father, and we don't get enough credit in this country . . .
"[I've] never done something like this, but I have faith that [we] can pull together a miracle for this strong family who needs our help right now."
