Chance the Rapper isn't nearly done. The Chicago MC who has made it his mission to lift up the youth of his hometown in as many ways as he can has come up with yet another initiative to aid Chi town's young people. On the heels of his $1 million donation to Chicago Public Schools, donation of coats to the homeless, a long-running open-mike series for teens and a call-out last month to CPS student filmmakers to help him direct a Jamila Woods video, Chance is once again stepping up to encourage positive action.
On Wednesday (June 14), he announced his participation in the Go Innovation Challenge in coordination with the Chicago Beyond philanthropy fund that seeks creative ideas to make Chicago a more positive place for the city's youth. Chicago Beyond's Liz Dozier was on hand for the announcement of the $2 million challenge from her organization, explaining "we're looking for amazing ideas, programs, approaches to support Chicago's kids."
