Chris Brown has really stepped up to the plate in terms of his charity work. This weekend, he donated more than 1,000 pairs of Reebok to disadvantaged children through his Symphonic Love Foundation. Held at Campanella Park in Compton, Calif, it was the second “WE US: Walk Everywhere in Unity’s Shoes” that he hosted this month.’
Chris (wearing a Trayvon Martin tribute tee) was joined by Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Guillermo Cespedes, local youth organizations and the LAPD, who made sure the event was peaceful and orderly.
He tweeted, “WE US! Thankful for all of the people who came together to help give back today! A big thank you to LA Deputy Mayor Cespedes, Skipp, Big U and the LAPD for making this campaign safe and successful!”
Chris spoke to HollywoodLife.com about the donation saying,
"I grew up as one of those kids who was brought up in gangs and had to be one of the bad kids so to speak. Being able to see the looks on these kids’ faces. It’s just about uplifting and bringing everybody together.”
And in new music....
