T.I. has always stressed the importance of education to his younger fans, now it looks as if TIP is taking this a bit further. On May 5, he’s announced the “Money Talk With TIP” education initiative where he will match his personal money with different educational fundraiser efforts.
Students and individuals who have their own, or are affiliated with organizations that are raising money to fund education initiatives can enter a contest where their funds will be matched by T.I. and TIDAL up to $250,000.
To enter, organizations have to submit proposals via T.I. and Tidal’s Crowd Rise site. Then they have to get the most donations from the general public by using the hashtag #TIDALXMONEYTALK on social media.
Participants must be at 18 and older to enter. The contest runs from now until June 15. On June 15, TIDAL will announce the five finalists with the most funding. On June 22, TIP and TIDAL will announce the winner.
This initiative follow after Lil Wayne who also teamed up with TIDAL for a community serice contest among colleges and universities nationwide. The winning school in Louisiana received a free Lil Wayne concert.
