Kodak Black Donates Over $12,000 to Low-Income Students: Report
Despite all the rap beef and legal trouble he's faced over the last year, Kodak Black has apparently still made time to give back.
On Friday (May 3), Kodak's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, told TMZ that the rapper donated $12,500 to help one girl named Paige Cook's goal to collect enough notebooks and pencils to give to all 7,600 students in the Cleburne Independent School District in Texas. After the 14-year-old rounded up 40,000 pencils last year, Cook aims to step her game up in 2019, and Kodak has stepped in to help her do just that.
A majority of students who attend classes in the Cleburne Independent School District in Texas come from low-income communities, so Kodak's effort certainly won't go unappreciated.
Kodak Black is no stranger to community service. The Florida rapper has given his time and money to several commendable causes within the last year alone. Back in October 2018, Kodak gave $10,000 to the Jack & Jill Children's Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
A few weeks later, Kodak donated $2,500 to South Carolina police officer Terrence Carraway, who died on duty after being involved in a shooting. Kodak donated to the late police officer's GoFundMe under Bill K Kapri, which is a name his lawyer had said he changed last spring.
As if that's not enough, Kodak paused everything he was doing to help save the life of a woman stuck in a damaged car. During an Instagram Live session on March 6, Kodak approached a woman who was involved in a car accident to offer his assistance.
