American rapper T.I. shared his Easter spirit with 23 people after bailing them out of jail.
On Sunday, the Atlanta rapper joined forces with Love and Hip Hop’s Scrapp Deleon, and New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia to bail out a group of non-violent and first-time offenders.
The senior pastor of the church, Dr. Jamal Bryant said, “It’s almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don’t know that you didn’t see coming.”, They’re appreciative to be able to press the refresh button.”
According to Fox 5, the church launched its $40,000 fundraising campaign on Lent with the intention to bail non-violent prisoners on Easter Sunday. Once T.I. got involved, the church’s program exceeded its goal and raised a total of $120,000 ahead of the holiday.
“The Bail Out” program connects recipients with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. Additionally, a portion of the donations will be used to start college savings for the children of the former inmates
