The Atlanta MC and his charity TRU Foundation got wind of Dierdre Plater, a disabled veteran going through many hardships. Plater recently had surgery and has been looking for a job for nearly a year. She revealed, “It’s hard to keep gas in the car, food in the house, and do everything by myself being a single parent. I am on a fixed income.”
But 2 Chainz definitely saved the day, er, year by surprising Plater and her son at their apartment. He provided bedroom furniture, sofas, and agreed to pay her rent for an entire year.
I remember when we didn't have hot water and I didn't want my friends to know , so I told them it was something wrong with that bathroom and they couldn't use my mommas, i remember using the oven to heat the house , I would stand in the kitchen for hours to stay warm . I remember waiting until the water co. Close at 5 ,so we could use a tool and turn the water back on until 6 am , I remember going to sleep hungry , i remember a long ass extension chord coming from the neighbors house to mine to borrow they're lights ,I remember stealing cable , cars , clothes etc, no matter how much pain I endured I smiled on the outside , it was my defense mechanism. I remember 🙏🏿
2 Chainz revealed that a portion of the proceeds from his “Ugly Christmas Sweater” line helped provide for the Plater family, and will help other families in need this holiday season. Plater gratefully stated, “I love to see stuff like this happen for other people, but I never thought it would happen to me.”
A humbled 2 Chainz shared a post on Instagram, writing it’s “important to give back when you’ve got it.”
