Aside from working with his G.O.O.D. Music comrades for Cruel Winter, Big Sean is also working on improving lives in his hometown of Detroit.
Big Sean returned home to donate $25,000 to Wayne State University’s Helping Individuals Go Higher (HIGH) program through his Sean Anderson Foundation. The HIGH program is dedicated to ending college student homelessness.
Sean’s donation will “provide short-term support to Wayne State students experiencing homelessness or precarious housing situations,” as stated on the foundation’s website. He started this foundation in 2012 and was created “simply to make the lives of young people better.” Their mission is to assist in the education, health, safety and well-being of Detroit Area school aged youth as well disadvantaged youth in other areas across the nation.
Big Sean has always stayed active in the community as the foundation also donated $82,000 to help children poisoned by the Flint, Michigan water and collaborated with adidas Originals last year to open a brand new recording studio at Big Sean’s high school alma mater.
