FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Join us on September 11th and the 18th 2021 for Hip Hop 4 Nola – A National Day of Unity and hurricane relief for Louisiana. August 26, 2021, the state of Louisiana, Missipipi and now Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey are in a state of emergency as a Category 3-5 hurricane devastated millions of people without homes, food, clean water and many personal belongings.
In 2010, over 32 cities gathered leaders, youth, and supporters in the hip hop community hosted an event to collect monetary donations as well as earthquake relief items for the catastrophic earthquake that hit Haiti. The live stream simultaneously united these cities for a historic fundraising event that was called Hip Hop 4 Haiti. From the huge response and support, founder YoNasDa Lonewolf (national organizer/activist/and hip hop artist) decided to do it again for the people of Flint, MI in 2016. This time over 42 cities nationally and internationally raised monetary donations to purchase lead removal water filters that was delivered to Flint.
On, September 30, 2017 12 cities united again promoting the culture Hip Hop and the community to raise relief supplies and monetary donations to aid the people in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean. This event planned in two weeks was called “Hip Hop 4 The People.”
