One Kanye West fan is over the rapper’s quest for money.
After deciding he’d heard enough about West’s $53 billion debt and requests for aid from billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg, copywriter Gabriel Ferrer launched a site called Help Kenya, Not Kanye. The goal: To help noncelebrities in need.
He cites one particular tweet from West as the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Kanye had earlier tweeted this to Mark Zuckerberg:
The site has nine different sections, each linking to various charities like Kenya Aid, Just Give, Humanity Kenya and the Tap Water Project. Each incentive is also coupled with a Kanye West-related pun, like “Books > Boosts.”
“A pair of Yeezy Boosts at retail costs over $200,” Ferrer writes.
“With that money ($209.11) you can donate books to educate children in Kenya. A UNICEF School-In-A-Box Kit meets the needs of 1 teacher and 40 students for 3 months.”
That specific link redirects to the Unicef School in a Box donation page.
“Being a Kanye fan is really hard,” Ferrer writes at the end.
“But donating to Kenya is really easy. I hope in the future I won’t have to pick Good deeds over GOOD music, but until then we can help people that don’t have 21 Grammys.”
