Tory Lanez has joined the list of celebs doing what they can to help those effected by COVID-19.
The “Quarantine Radio” host has announced the “Tory Lanez Dream City Fund” to help raise money to provide meals and diapers for those in the Los Angeles area, as well as other communities. The fund will be in collaboration with The Dream City Project, which Tory founded with his father in 2012 to help inspire and mentor youth, and the Dream Center, a charity based in Los Angeles.
To start the fund, Tory has teamed up with Amazon music to cover the cost of 100,000 diapers.
“It’s very important for any artist to give back because at some point you were regular, too. At some point, you were a regular person just like everyone else,” Lanez told CNN. “I always tell artists people feel exactly how you (felt) when you were in that place.”
“In a world where we all have homes to go to, nobody’s taking about what a struggle it is for someone who’s homeless right now,” Lanez said. “What a struggle it is for a woman with a child with no home right now. What a struggle it is for a woman with a child with respiratory issues. No one is thinking about that.”
Tory will continue to do Quarantine Radio on his Instagram Live, but now for a good cause.
