It was recently announced that Jay-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation has partnered with eBay For Charity to help “underprivileged youths” fund their college tuition.
According to Billboard, eBay for Charity has started a 10-day charity auction, which consists of the memorabilia from celebrities such as Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato. Along with unique experiences that include a VIP lounge party at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, VIP passes to the Made In America festival, along with a few other amazing experiences.
All of the proceeds from the auction will be going to the Shawn Carter Foundation’s scholarship fund and educational programs. The foundation has been able to raise more than $4 million dollars for students since 2003.
In a statement, Carter talked about teaming up with eBay for Charity, “Our goal is to touch as many people as we possibly can. There are so many young people — a lot of whom are first-generation students — that have the desire to attend college but don’t have the funds. My mother and father taught us to pay it forward and give to the community.
