T.I is known for his internet rants and his reality TV show but he should definitely be known for his philanthropic work. Over the weekend, #TI and The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church helped with getting 7 women and 16 men out of Dekalb County Jail in Georgia.

Along with T.I, #LoveAndHipHop star #ScrappDeleon also helped with the church’s bailout program. This was for people who were locked up for the first time and the crime was non-violent. The Bail Out program also helped the individuals even after they are bailed out. They help with getting them a mentor and if the inmates have children, donations will be made into a college fund for them.

The church planned this program during #Lent and wanted to raise $40,000 in efforts to this mission. #TI saw and instantly got involved which caused the proceeds to reach over $100,000.00 ! We enjoy the good deeds of others and hope this can encourage everyone to give back.
