50 Cent kicked off his Street King campaign earlier in the year with plans of feeding a billion African children, as he would feed one child for every purchase of his SK Energy Shot. Now 50 plans on feeding American families with proceeds made from the sales of his new SMS Headphone line, as 250 meals will be provided for each headphone purchase through SMS Audio.
In a recent interview with MTV , Fif explained his plan to feed America:
“Because of my Street King initiative, with every purchase there’s a meal being provided through the United Nations World Food Programme. And with this actual project, I decided I wanted to do something here in America. So for every pair of these headsets that are sold domestically and online through SMSAudio.com, 250 meals will be provided by Feeding America, which is our leading charitable organization against hunger.”
As 50 continued, he adds:
“I think business is the answer for finding finances for situations that have been unanswered and untouched. If young entrepreneurs follow in my footsteps, with having a charitable business model that actually gives back, then you don’t have people standing at Occupy Wall Street, because they’re aware that the major corporations are conscious of them.”
