Trae Tha Truth Organizes Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

After having to be rescued and evacuated from his own home when Hurricane Harvey touched down in Houston, Trae Tha Truth began joining and organizing rescue missions. He personally delivering supplies to everyone in need, from children and the elderly to prison inmates, and provided a sense of comfort to evacuees of his hometown. Now, as the city begins to rebuild itself, the Grand Hustle rapper is calling for everyone’s support to help fulfill his mission of raising $250,000 to buy supplies needed to aid underserved families and senior citizens affected by the Category 5 storm. Launched on GoFundMe, Trae’s campaign is titled “We Are One! Hurricane Harvey Relief” and is connected to his 501 (C)3 non-profit foundation Angel by Nature.

 

Although he is not the only one working to bring relief the storm-ravaged city, Trae’s philanthropic work spans ten years, with Angel by Nature being established in 2008 with the mission of improving the lives of those affected by hardship and poverty. In 2008 the mayor of Houston awarded Trae with his own holiday, Trae Day, recognizing his continuing commitment to the community. Recent segments on FOX, CNN, and Good Morning America have recognized him for his volunteer work and particularly for rescuing Orlando Magic player Jonathon Simmons. In addition to the monetary donations to the campaign, clothing donations are also being accepted.
