Help Kenya, Not Kanye

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:

 “If you really want a GOOD Friday, help Kenya not Kanye,” Ferrer writes.

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.”
