The holiday season is the perfect time for giving & singer/songwriter Ne-Yo has perfected that craft. His Compound Foundation teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of America for the 7th Annual “Giving Tour” providing hundreds of needy children with the opportunity to receive holiday gifts that they possibly might not have. “You don;t just give BEcause the cameras are on, you give BEcause it’s the right thing to do” Ne-Yo explains when asked why he decided to do his 4 city tour, which included Harlem, LA, Vegas, and concluded in ATL.
Mayor Kasim Reed was also on hand to help celebrate in the giving & to congratulate Ne-Yo on his humanitarian efforts. Nascar Driver Nicole Lyons, Kandi Burruss (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Toya Wright, Reginae Carter, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Bobby V, Monyetta Shaw (Ne-Yo’s baby mother), Loraine Smith (Ne-Yo’s Mother), and a host of others including the head of marketing for the Boys & Girls Club of America also joined the Compound Foundation in changing the holiday spirit for the children of Atlanta.
