Rich The Kid is giving back this holiday season. The trust fund baby organized a virtual Christmas giveaway for families in need this year, and thus far he’s helped over 20 families. 

The “New Freezer” rapper isn’t just playing Santa Clause. In addition to paying for gifts via Target orders through his Rich Forever Holiday Give Back, Rich has given away NFTs, paid for overdue light bills, daycare, rent, and other costly expenses.  

“Covid has caused a financial burden on a lot of American families who were already living in poverty,” Rich The Kid tells REVOLT. “It’s been on my heart heavily to give back whenever I get the chance, and it’s something that I enjoy doing without any other objective outside of helping people. While taking into consideration the increasing cases of COVID-19, we created a way that we would be able to do so.”

“I am happy that I was able to pay and help some people stay in their homes this Christmas, and to be able to provide Christmas gifts to families as well,” he added. 

Last month, Rich The Kid treated residents of a homeless shelter in Atlanta to a home cooked meal, and gifted 104 families with brand new Nike sneakers and school supplies like “notebooks, papers, folders, pens, pencils and socks.”

In August, when a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, the 29 year-old who is of Haitian descent, brought attention to the disastrous damage in the Caribbean country, and those in need of aid via Instagram. 

“THIS IS FOOTAGE OF HAITI RIGHT NOW!! PLEASE PRAY FOR HAITI. WHOEVER IS WILLING TO HELP CONTACT ME NOW!! WE CANT STAND TO WATCH THIS HAPPEN!! NO FOOD!! NO WATER!! NO HOMES ALL EFFECTED FROM THE EARTHQUAKES,” he wrote. 

He also shared information about how his fans could help Haiti by donating canned goods and toiletries to those affected and displaced. 

Next year, Rich tells REVOLT he plans to continue being charitable and he’s looking forward to starting his own foundation where he will be “creating more community events and give backs throughout the year.”
