"I was inspired by Chance The Rapper to ‘think bigger’ when he pledged one million dollars to Chicago kids and their school system. So, I’ll be joining him by investing in the future of our youth. 
The system is failing our kids, and it will be up to the community and our leaders to help keep the hope alive by focusing on improving our education system and the future of our kids. Any company that decides to invest in me, just know that you’ll be investing in opportunities and providing inspiration for these families- many who feel unnoticed or go unmentioned. 
I have decided to donate all of my endorsement money in 2017 to help rebuild minority communities through s.t.e.a.m programs, as well as initiatives that directly affect women of color in hopes that we can create more opportunities for our youth and build a brighter future. 
In addition, 50% of the proceeds from my jersey sales this year will go to programs and initiatives to support inner-city garden projects, as it’s not only about providing opportunities in education and arts, but to help provide the right nutrition and access to healthy living to all. 
I’m asking all professional athletes to join me by donating a portion of your endorsements this year to a cause of your choice. We can make a difference. It’s up to us to help plant seeds of hope and help fuel the future. 
Power to the People,

  • jescreiatnonprofitHello, I know you may not see this – but I'm willing to give it a try. I'm a 16 year old who is extremely passionate about music and its history . I grew up around a family surrounded by music , but in no way had the means to persue the liking - and I know that Is the same case for many children my age and younger . So in turn , I've created a non profit organization that withholds The objective of advocating for inner city youth who are musically inclined – yet have not the resources, experience, or support they need to do so. Jescreiat aims to reach the minds of the inner city youth, engaging them in the process of creating music, learning to play instruments, creative writing, or expanding their already higher knowledge of music – if it is present, by stimulating their creativity and encouraging it. It is a place to dream, create, and experience - while honing their craft and succeeding in what they're passionate about. Members who join are gifted with the opportunity to create , learn and experience everything through field trips surrounded by an abundance of music , hip hop and soul culture - along with simply creating . you are able to take classes to learn to play instruments , write , take trips to music museums , and experience music culture . I'm sharing this with you because I see you have the platform to do so , and if you would visit my profile and donate or share this I would greatly appreciate it. ❤️

Alot of these city kids deal with everyday adversities parents on drugs, peers getting shot please check out fldoubledutch.com their program is amazing.. The founders really give the children a chance and make sure they live their lives to the fullest to be all that they can be. All of their jumpers maintain a 3.0 or better and the love they show these children is simply amazing
