Eminem to Match $100k in Fan Donations for Michigan Children’s Charity
With the release of The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Detroit rapper Eminem raced back to the top of the charts, selling an impressive 792,000 copies in week one. Now he’s set to give some of that love — and cash — back to a children’s charity in his home state.
According to Michigan news source MLive, Eminem and the Marshall Mathers Foundation have vowed to match fan pledges up to $100,000 donated to Wolverine Human Services, a Michigan-based social services agency that provides “safety, sustenance, nurturing, and therapeutic intervention to children.”
“Supporting us means that you’ll be making a difference in the lives of Michigan’s children, their families, and the great city of Detroit. All it takes is a few simple clicks of a button,” reads a statement on the website dedicated to the initiative, which is part of the #GivingTuesday campaign.
