Kimora Lee Simmons knows that being a celebrity is about so much more than just being in the spotlight, it means giving back. Kimora and family have donated $50,000 to GlobalGrind’s campaign to help save LIFE Camp, Inc., an anti-violence group that’s unfortunately facing a funding shortage.
On her donation, Kimora stated:
“As a mother, an entrepreneur and a community member, I’m proud to support LIFE Camp and the work its founder Erica Ford has done to alleviate gun violence. The only way we will heal a country that is being torn apart by excessive violence is by properly funding groups that do the grassroots work in the community. I am proud to support such an important program.”
And, thanks to Kimora and all of the other amazingly generous people who have donated, LIFE Camp is able to re-open. Erica Ford, Executive Director of LIFE Camp, said:
“Our doors have been re-opened because of the generosity of Ms. Simmons as well as the over 500 other amazing people who have donated to our program. We are fully operational and look forward to continuing the work to keep our community safe.”
The campaign raised $129,550. Now there’s some positivity for you. Thank you, Kimora!
