This is hopefully the first of many posts of people who in some way, shape, or form, have themselves together.

Dear Jay-Z,

Thanks for spreadng a little love in the world. After the latest events involving the murder of Sean Bell by NYPD, you have stepped up to the plate to bring a little bit of joy to Bell’s family. According to

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has established an educational trust for the for the children of Sean Bell, the unarmed African-American man who was shot and killed by police on the day he was to be married.

I love seeing people reach out to others, and although some may think he could do more (Don), this is definitely a great gesture.

Check out this video featuring Nicole Paultre-Bell, Sean Bell’s wife in Jay-Z’s Rocawear “I Will Not Lose” series.


Check out the Sean Carter Scholarship Fund while you’re at it, apply for a scholarship if you need it.

And while you’re at it check out this old but good video featuring Jay-Z about the water crisis in Luwanda, Angola, and a small village in South Africa.
