BPW Foundation's Women Misbehavin' Blog

Well behaved women never make history

“Let’s fix our problems one step at a time.”

Posted by joyinhome on May 11, 2010

 The words of will.i.am, the creative genius behind the Black-eyed Peas as well as many top Hip Hop, Pop and R&B artists.

will.i.am personally paid off the mortgages for two families who were in jeopardy of losing their homes. He has decided to keep going. He has established the i.am home fund with his own money and will now urge others who are able, to give.

Mission: will.i.am created the i.am home fund to help those in jeopardy of losing their homes due to the economic crisis in the United States.

“Growing up I dreamt that one day I’d be able to buy my mom a house and take care of my family.  I realized that dream and experienced the positive effect giving back had on my family.  Now I am compelled to help others who are in jeopardy of losing their homes and inspire others to join the movement.  The collapse of the housing market and the economic crisis has left millions in jeopardy of losing their homes.  The crisis awakened a personal mission to create the i.am home fund to save people facing the very real problem of foreclosure and homelessness.”

WOW…using his celebrity to make a real difference…I love it.
